Hello Bears,

Welcome to our 25th anniversary season!

Now that school is over and summer practices are in full swing I wanted to welcome back our returning players and say hello to our new players and families.

A few things to note and remember

– All players will receive new practice jerseys. They’ll be at the field soon

– Clothing will be available mid -July.  Online options will be available soon

– Only players, coaches and team personal are allowed on the field. No leaning on the field fence during practices or games. The track is open to use during practices and games and no pets are allowed in the stadium

CONCUSSION TESTING

NLFA has partnered with Dr. Mark Malowney of Rebound Sport and Spine for optional concussion baseline testing through the Complete Concussion Management Program. All athletes 8 and up are recommended to have a complete comprehensive baseline test. We have been offered a significant discount for this test. $60.00 for 12 and under $70.00 for 13 and older. These tests are eligible under extended benefits. Assistance for low income families is available.
