The North Metro Youth Football League (“NMYFL”) enters its 9th year in 2023. The league is a collaboration of communities located in the north metro of the Twin Cities organized to provide a flag & tackle football league for youth grades K-6th. Flag is only offered at grade K-1. 

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.

NMYFL 2022 Season Review

The 2022 season started on Monday, August 29th with a limited schedule of 5th and 6th grade games this week. It was a season that returned us to normalcy as we continue to battle the pandemic, but we had 53 tackle and 13 flag teams across our four community associations n action this year.

In 2022, we also competed in crossover games at the 4th, 5th & 6th grader level against teams from the TCNFL. In all or teams played 54 non-league games in October against teams from the other league. 

Thanks to all the coaches, players, referees, spectators and board members of our associations for making this season possible. It was great to see everyone out watching youth football and having a good time.  

We had more than 900 players, 180 coaches and 30 referees in our league this season. 

See you next August!
