The largest co-ed Youth Flag Football  League in Maryland 

Successful Seasons


League Established




Players ages


Established in 2005 by Doug & LaNeta Roth, Southern Maryland Youth Flag Football League is the largest co-ed youth football league in the state of Maryland. Based in Waldorf, we serve Charles County and the surrounding areas. 


To date, we've had nearly 30 successful seasons, each providing a positive experience for many coaches, youth and parents. SMYFFL operates Spring and Fall seasons, providing a safe football atmosphere. 

Affiliated with the NFL Flag League, we are a coed youth organization, designed to educate young people ages 4-17 about football and cheer while emphasizing participation and sportsmanship. Football players will learn about formations, pass patterns, terminology, and different defense types, all in a safe, non-contact environment.

Cheerleaders will learn chants, motions, jumps, and all the basics of sideline cheer with hopes of joining cheer competitions in our future.

The league is open to boys and girls ages 4-17, of all skill levels. 


meet the commissioner 




I'm an avid sports fan, I love working with kids and giving back to my community. As a longtime Charles County resident, I have been affiliated with SMYFFL in various positions since its inaugural season.


My boys have played, and I was lucky enough to Coach them and watch them grow up in this organization. Now as the Commissioner, I want to see the same things happen to your kids. I want to create a safe, fun, family-oriented environment where kids can compete at a higher level and parents can come to support them in their endeavors.


I will use flag football as an intricate tool to teach the kids how to build social skills while exercising in the process. My aspiration is to be an inspiration. 

See you on the field,



" Football is like life - it requires perseverance, self-denial, hard work, sacrifice, dedication and respect for authority."
