Youth Football Camp Update:
Camp registration is open for 3 - 8th grade.
Grades 3-6 will have a 1-hour camp on July 13,15,16,17.
Grades 7-8 will have a 1-hour camp on July 20,21,22,23.
All campers will be given a hand sanitizer at the start of their camp. They must bring a bag, cleats, and water to camp. No equipment needed this year for our football camp.
All camps will be at Kenwood Middle School. Parents can drop their child off up to 15 min. prior to their camp start time so they can get signed in and have their temp checked. They will not be able to participate if their temperature is too high. We will start each camp with hand sanitizer and take a water/cleaning break 20 min into camp and 40 minutes into camp. Coaches and campers will clean off all footballs and equipment at the end of camp for the next group.
Youth Football Season Update:
We are waiting on the states decision to open youth sports for the fall season. Things are progressing in other sports and we feel strongly that we will have a youth football season. It is difficult to plan for the unknown, but we have ordered all the necessary uniforms and equipment so we are ready when the time comes.
Our association met with Eastview, Eagan, Apple Valley, South, Farmington, and Burnsville in the off-season and made some changes we believe will improve the football experience at the 3-5th grade level.
We agreed to align with USA football and offer:
3rd Grade Football - 6-man (TackleBar - although changing the name to padded flag)
4th Grade Football - 7-man (Half season Padded Flag and half season tackle)
5th Grade Football - 8-man (Tackle Football)
6-8th grade will remain tackle football like in the past, but the season will end on the same date for all teams. The season will be exactly 8 weeks (8 games) including any playoff format.
I know many are eager to get back to a normal sports season, but we ask that you remain patient. We want everyone to be prepared for when they give us the go ahead and then we plan to hit the ground running.
Looking forward to working with your kids the next few weeks.

I am sorry, but Riddell could come out and do fittings because of COVID guidelines. Helmet purchases are final and he did not feel comfortable selling helmets without fitting them personally.
We provide helmets for 7th and 8th grade. If you are new to 3-6th grade football or your previous helmet did not fit we recommend purchasing a white helmet at Dicks. It won't have the red face mask, but that is okay for youth.
