We are moving to Badger East Youth Football League

Norski Nation,

We have some exciting news to share about the upcoming 2022 youth football season. We will be joining the Badger East Youth Football League this upcoming season. We’ve listened to feedback from our parents and coaches, and feel that the Badger East League is a better fit for our program, and better represents our values on player development, standards of behavior and positive conduct. 

We were invited to join the Badger East Youth Football League on a one year probationary period. All new members to the league go through a 1-year trial period, where at the end of the season, if everything goes well, our full membership will be voted on by the league. 

Communities in the league include: Cambridge, Columbus, Jefferson, Lake Mills, Lakeside Lutheran, McFarland, Fort Atkinson, Whitewater, and Marshall

Additional communities added to the league for the 2022 season on a one-year probationary term: Belleville, DeForest, Monroe, New Glarus/Monticello and Poynette

Here are some details about the league and what it means for our upcoming season.

The Badger East Youth Football League is a tackle football league for grades 6, 7, and 8.

What does this mean for 5th grade that want tackle football? 5th graders that want to play tackle football can play up with 6th grade. The Badger East conference does allow this, so our 5th/6th grade team(s) will also be playing combined teams of 5th and 6th grade. If we have enough kids to split into multiple teams, teams will be split evenly between 5th and 6th graders.

What does this mean for 4th and 5th grade that don't want tackle football? We will be joining some of the programs in Badger East and participating a 4th and 5th grade padded flag league.  The league is similar to flag football with an extreme emphasis on FUN , SAFETY and Development.
