The North Metro Youth Football League (“NMYFL”) enters its 3rd year in 2017. The league is a collaboration of communities located in the north metro of the Twin Cities organized to provide a tackle football league for youth.  2017 the NMYFL served 63 tackle teams, 200+ coaches, and 1,340+ players across grades 2-6. The league also welcomed Coon Rapids at grades 2-6 and St Francis at grade 2.  

In 2015, the first year of the league, we served community based football associations of: Blaine, Centennial, Coon Rapids, Irondale, Mounds View, and Spring Lake Park. Grade level divisions were offered for 2nd, 3rd, and 4th.

In 2016, the league expanded to 57 teams, including 5th & 6th grade divisions, as well as welcoming St. Anthony at the 5th & 6th grade level and Andover at the 2nd grade level. 

Philosophy and League Functions
The league is organized to coordinate the activities of the member communities participating teams. The league is an informal organization, and operates with a minimum of rules, regulations, policies and procedures. The focus of the league is on providing youth with the opportunity to play tackle football and grow participation in the sport.

The basic operating functions of the league are as follows:

  1. Provide a framework that allows teams from the various participating communities to play each other.
  2. Establish a uniform set of playing rules and provide educational training for coaches and referees to create consistency in enforcement of playing rules.
  3. Develop and maintain game schedules for each grade division among the participating communities.
  4. Provide a mechanism and authority for receiving, investigating, and resolving complaints.
  5. Create opportunities to educate all participants on the value of participation in youth sports and volunteerism in the communities we serve.
