Grades impacted include 4th, 5th, and 6th
Parents and administrators have expressed an overwhelming interest in Elk River Youth Football evolving and expanding to include other communities of play to give the kids of Elk River a more complete football experience to better prepare them for the high school football program. After much internal discussion, the ERYFA is excited to announce this new direction.
The TCNYFL is a youth tackle football league comprised of youth football organizations from the Twin Cities north metro area. Participating communities include Monticello, St. Francis, Andover, Big Lake, Becker, Zimmerman, Champlin Park, Anoka…and others, but the league is always growing.
With the excitement of this change, it is expected that there will be questions. The Elk River Youth Football Association has compiled a list of questions and answers for you to view, and our board representatives are available to you at any time.
