MGYFA would like to thank its Official Training Partner, N1 Motion, for conducting our Player Evaluations for Grades 4 - 8.

N1 Motion is a fitness and performance gym that provides comprehensive training solutions. Whether you are a competitive athlete, fitness enthusiast, or just someone who values living an active lifestyle, their programs and services will meet your needs so you can get tangible results to  reach your goals faster!


MGYFA will not take friend requests into consideration when creating team rosters. We will align students from the same schools into the same teams, however we aren't able to guarantee that all kids from each school will be aligned to a single team. One of the goals of MGYFA program is to have our athletes build relationships with their future teammates, and combining teams with players from other schools is a way to help the kids build these new friendships. Since MGYFA Flag practices are all in the same location and scheduled at the same time, carpooling for practices is not an issue.


We are also not able to honor Coach Requests or Coaching Partnership requests. Depending on the number of coaches, and the schools that their children are aligned with, we may need to break them apart in order to have qualified coaches overseeing each of our teams.  Our objective is to ensure that we have a great experience for all of our players and we are focusing on building a successful Maple Grove Youth Football program and not individual flag football teams.
