Middle School Families

Neenah Middle Schoolers in grades 6,7,8 play in the FLFL (Future Leaders Football League). When numbers allow, there are two teams at each grade level. 6th graders practice and play home games at Horace Mann Middle School. 7th and 8th graders practice and play home games at Shattuck Middle School. 

All players must have a physical to be cleared to play before the first practice. Forms are attached below to download. 

The first practice is the first Tuesday in August, and until school begins, practices are held in the evenings, five nights per week. Once school starts, practices are held immediately after school at your player's school, five afternoons per week. Games start in late August and are held on Tuesday evenings.  Transportation is provided for all athletes and coaches to and from games. The season wraps up in mid to late October.
