Registration Now OPEN!!
Registration for the 2020 fall football season is now open. Please click on the appropriate link below to register for either our House Flag and 7v7 program for K-3rd grade or our LMAA Tackle Program for 4th-8th grade.
MGYFA realizes many of our members are excited to return to sports. We appreciate you patience as we continue to navigate our new normal.
MGYFA strives to not only provide a great experience for our athletes but also run our program with transparency and efficiency. With that in mind we wanted to ensure we had planned appropriately and had confidence in executing the upcoming season. This resulted in our delay in opening registration. The goal is to be clear up front on what it expect.
Before registering please take note of the current changes made for the upcoming season. We will continue to update our members as the situation evolves.
Updates to 2020 Football
Please let us know of any questions and we will continue to communicate as the situation evolves.
COVID 19 Update
The safety of our players, spectators and staff has always been at the forefront of what we do. The LMAA and MGYFA have been closely monitoring the evolving situation with youth sports in Minnesota and our ability to provide a tackle football season this Fall. The update released on June 19th from the Minnesota Department of Health gives us confidence that we will be able to hold our fall season with the appropriate safe guards put in place. We will continue to monitor the direction from the MNDH as the epidemiology of the virus continues to evolve within MN.
Given this information we are moving forward with our fall season and are continuing to develop our return to play protocols under the guidance of the CDC, MNDH and USA Football. We will communicate these measures as they are developed and approved. We would like to thank you for your patience and support during these unprecedented times.
We can't wait to see you in August!
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:
* 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.
Game jerseys provided for all grades, requesting 5th-7th grades to bring back their jerseys for a $25 registration credit, Practice jersey's and helmets also provided for tackle.
