Monona Grove Youth Football is a non-profit youth organization sponsored by local groups and our annual donation fund-raiser. Participants must be registered students in 5th, 6th, 7th or 8th grade attending schools in the Monona Grove School District to include Immaculate Heart of Mary. Exceptions may be granted on a limited basis.
We are apart of the Badger Central Youth Football Alliance program. For more information about the league, please click on "Find Out More" below.
We are a volunteer staff dedicated to teaching students the fundamentals of football while promoting qualities such as self-control, commitment, leadership, teamwork and friendship. We provide a recreational football experience while preparing students for Monona Grove High School Football.
Our practice field is located at Haukereid Field at Ahuska Park Monona. Our home games are played Monday and Tuesday nights at Haukereid Field at Ahuska Park. League scheduled away games will be either Monday, Tuesday or Thursday nights. We play a 7 game schedule with 50% of our games played on our opponent's field.
Our helmets were just re-certified!
Safety is our number one priority and that starts with helmets. Throughout the course of a season, helmets endure the rigors of football - practice, games, heat, sweat and scratches. To ensure proper safety, Our helmets are inspected in multiple ways, including air liner tests and meticulous shell inspections.
We are a grade based program. There are weight restrictions for ball carriers and line positions for each grade.
Students will need football shoes, socks and colored mouth guard. All other equipment will be provided.
The league requires a mandatory weigh-in the first day of practice.
Each student must be present at this weigh-in to participate in the program.
There are several parent volunteer positions available such as chain gang, field painting crew, field set up crew and concessions personnel.
Each team will need at least one Team Parent to communicate coach information such as practice and game schedule updates, bus detail or car pools for away games and fund raising support activities.
Morrie Haukereid and Billy Smith started the program in 1969. They had so many kids show up that they had to cut kids. The the following year the program expanded to 4 teams. Since that time the Monona PeeWees have been a 4 team league consisting of the Mustangs, Packers, Colts and Falcons. Players from that first team are still active today as coaches and officials.
The teams play 6 games, and a play off game if needed in order to crown a Champion.
Participants are asked to solicit for donations to the organization. This has allowed the program to only charge $5 in order to participate. That hasn't changed since 1969.
