Mankato North Mankato Youth Football

MNM Youth Football takes a positive learning approach rather than a ‘win at all costs’ focus. In the modern day environment of competition, it is important for youth to learn the values of sportsmanship, hard work, and determination.

While players are encouraged to do their best on every down, game scores are neither recorded nor announced on the field, and the league has no standings.

REGISTRATION IS CLOSED
