Welcome to North Metro Football League.

North Metro Football League (NMFL) was formed to serve the areas of the Northern Metro Region of Atlanta. NMFL's mission is to provide a league to address the needs of the youth organizations in the community we serve embodying the following initiatives:

  • In it for the love of the game
  • Believes the most important character trait is integrity and sportsmanship
  • Providing trained Coaches that can properly teach correct fundamentals of the game.
  • Providing a Safe fun-filled environment

NMFL is comprised of an non-voting Executive Board that governs general activities, establishes rules and develops schedules for the League members.

NMFL believes in providing a safe and fun-filled environment. We require all coaches to be properly trained and have a complete back ground check. We are proud to be a League Member of USA Football which adds significant value to our league by providing a pleather of
information related to coaching, health and safety, league administration and league guidance.

NMFL understands that each player has different skill levels. We also understand parents have different views, when it comes to the level of competition. That is why we strive to offer different levels of competitive choice. NMFL currently offers parents and League Members with the following competitive options:

Flag Football - Combined K thru 5th Grades

This level is used to introduce our younger players to the game of football. There is no tackling or hitting and minimal contact is limited to the hands. Players are selected to a team through evaluation of certain skill sets and placed into a draft to competitively balance teams.

Tackle Football - Grades 3rd  through 8th

Teams in this division are made up of players with varying skill levels. Players are evaluated and ranked on certain skill sets. Players are then placed into a documented draft system used to competitively balance teams.
