The NEFL is a not-for-profit volunteer driven organization dedicated to providing the youth of Noblesville a fun and safe activity while teaching the values of teamwork, sportsmanship and leadership through football and cheerleading.
See below for links to registration for players, cheerleaders, and coaches for the 2017 NEFL season. Equipment pickups start on May 10th. Please reference the calendar page for those dates and times. All equipment pickups will be at the IVY Tech locker room, located in the northeast corner of the building across the parking lot from the varsity football field. You must be registered in order to receive equipment and your child must be present to be fitted. The weight that you weigh in with will be the weight used for the season. This is not negotiable to be changed.
*There is a chance we will have tablets available to register on site but we cannot guarantee the internet connection will allow this.
*The calendar page dates are all updated as of 5/23/17. Please reference them for Grinders tryouts, evaluations, meet and greet, etc. All tackle players will be required to attend an evaluation session or they will just be slotted on to a team rather than drafted by a coach. Those who attend Grinders tryouts (5th and 6th graders) will not need to attend an evaluation session if they attend the Grinders tryout.
Coach Tim Blevins is moving on after 2 years of service as the Grinders Head Coach. The NEFL wants to thank Coach Blevins for his great work with the young men who have come through the program over the last few years. Coach Blevins will be moving on to assist Coach Simmons with the high school program in some capacity. The executive board will be interviewing candidates for the new coach next month. Inquires can be directed to Eric Snyder at email@example.com.
Riverview Health Sports Medicine is offering the pediatric version of the ImPACT concussion software at the Noblesville Rehab and Fitness location. The adult version is for athletes 12 and older but they now can test athletes as young as 5 and up to 11 years old with the pediatric software. This is a great opportunity for parents of players who participate for the NEFL and Grinders to obtain a baseline for their child before the season. Appointments can be scheduled by contacting 317-776-7225. We would encourage them to schedule an appointment during the summer since available appointments are scarce during the fall.
This is a great service and we strongly suggest that families consider taking advantage of this opportunity to keep kids safe. Cost for this service is only $20.
Congratulations to all teams that played in the championship games. The league champions are as follows:
1st/2nd Grade: Manchester
3rd Grade: Kansas State
4th Grade: Ohio State
5th/6th Grade: Falcons
The 2016 NEFL Hall of Fame class has been announced. Richard Perkins and Laura Perkins will be this year's inductees. They are both very deserving recipients of this honor, as they have been actively involved in many aspects of the operations of the NEFL for almost 20 years, and have stayed involved long after their son graduated from our program. Please come out and support their induction this Saturday at Dillon Park following our first round of games. Time should be around 9:30. This will cause subsequent games to be delayed by about 30 minutes the remainder of the day. Richard and Laura will also be announced on Friday night at the Millers game on NEFL Night.
We are proud to announce the 2017 NEFL Grinders Cheerleaders!Congratulations ladies! Welcome to the squad & have a fantastic season!
