Exciting New Approach to 3rd Grade Football

We are excited to announce a new progressive format for 3rd grade football for 2019 fall season.   Beginning this year, 3rd graders will be playing 7on7 touch football in the Lake Minnetonka Athletic Association.  

Our players will continue to receive the benefits previously offered to 3rd graders playing tackle football:

* playing teams from other Lake Minnetonka Athletic Association communities;

* 50% playing time;

* progressive player development skills.

The MGYFA Board of Directors is enthusiastic about this shift because it serves our primary mission: making football accessible to as many young people as possible.  At the same time, it allows players to continue develop their football skills in preparation for the future. 

Please reach out to the Board if you have any questions.
