  • M-Tu-Th's from 5:30-7:30 p.m. beginning Thursday, August 2nd.
  • Held at the Tower ball fields.
  • Players should wear shorts, white T-shirt with their LAST name in large BOLD lettering on the back, and football cleats.  T-shirt should be large enough to fit over pads once we get them.
  • Once pads and helmets are picked up, they should be worn to practice along with a mouth guard.  Mouth guards are mandatory and MUST strap to the helmet.  (We'll pick up pads on August 8th at 7:45 p.m. outside the FLAA hockey arena in Forest Lake.)
  • Players should bring at least 64oz of water to every practice.
  • 3-day a week practices will be in place until September.  There is no practice on Labor Day.  After Labor Day, practices will be on Tu and Th's with games typically on Saturdays for the remainder of the season.

  • Schedules will be handed out as soon as we get them, but don't expect them until mid-late August.
  • Typically held on Saturday mornings, but last year we had 1 or 2 on a Thursday evening.
  • Games are played at North Branch and Chisago middle schools as well as Forest Lake Athletic Association Fields.
  • Players should arrive 1 hour prior to play time for warm-ups and pre-game team meeting. 
  • Parents, please help minimize player distractions by maintaining distance from the players on the sidelines, allowing the coaches to do the coaching, and keeping emotions in check.  We are there to support the growth of the team as a whole.
