2016 4-8th Grade Kick-off Camp
Registration for the Fall 2020 Season is now closed!
Due to current Covid 19 restrictions we have decided to cancel this year's Youth Football Kick-off Camp along with the HS Youth Camp. With the number of players and family members that have participated in this in the past the field we use for this camp is not conducive for maintaining social distancing and documenting all participants and family present at the event.

North Branch area 4th - 6th graders participate in a league organized by the Forest Lake Area Athletic Association (FLAAA). The league consists of 10 - 14 teams per grade from the cities of Forest Lake Area, North Branch, Chisago Lakes, Wyoming, Linwood and White Bear Lake. Each team can have a maximum of 22 players. There are no try-outs for this league. Participants are taken on a first come, first served basis.
All practices are held at Roger Johnson in North Branch and games are scheduled on Saturday mornings in Forest Lake.
If 32 or more players sign up for a particular grade, an evaluation will be held for the coaches to preview the players and then a draft will take place to form 2 balanced teams.
North Branch 7th and 8th graders play in the North Suburban Youth League. This league consists of teams seperated into geographic divisions from the Northern half of the Metro area. There will be try-outs with each team(s) to have approximately 25 - 30 members making the final roster. We will consider having more than one team per grade if there are enough players registered and coaches available.
This is a 10-game regular season league. Playoffs take place at the end of the regular season and the top teams in each division will make the playoffs. Games in this league may be during weeknights or on weekends. Home games are played at the North Branch Middle School or Varsity Stadium field.
