Knights Youth Football is a tri-town program representing the combined talent of Mechanic Falls, Minot, and Poland from grade K through 8th grade.

Flag Football is a developmental program for players in grades K-2.  The fundamentals, game rules and strategies will be taught as a base to be applied in games using flags instead of tackling.

Tackle Football is a fun and challenging sport. At the recreation level we try to keep our program instructional and regard safety first and foremost. We highly recommend that all players begin a training program during the summer months to prepare for the fall season. You might consider running on a daily basis, throwing and catching a football with friends, working on your muscular strength, and stretching so you might more easily avoid a potential injury.

Cost: $100

Fundraiser:
Each player will be asked to sell a minimum of $25.00 in raffle tickets.  Any player that does not participate in the fundraiser will have a $25.00 charge added to their account.
The top Football fundraiser seller, will win a $75 VISA gift card!
