The NABC Football Program is open to children entering grades 3 through 8. The goals of the NABC Football Program are to have all participants develop an understanding and passion for the game of football. Emphasis will be placed on having all players learn the proper fundamental techniques needed to be successful in the sport. Offensive and defensive strategy may become more sophisticated by grade level. Please check our “Divisions” tab to the left for a detailed explanation of all the North Andover teams in the program.
Importance is placed on participants being student athletes who exhibit sportsmanship, enthusiasm, the proper work-ethic, conduct, team work and elements of leadership.
Practices are typically 1 1/2 - 2 hours in length and take place at Grogans Field or NAMS and range from 3-4 days per week depending upon age group. NABC Football is a 100% volunteer organization. We welcome all parents and guardians who wish to volunteer to help throughout the season. Your time will be well spent and very rewarding.
The NABC provides helmets, game shirts & pants, and practice pants with pads. Players supply their own mouth guards, shoulder pads, practice jerseys and cleats. Please note league rules prohibit screw in cleats.
Registration will be open from June 1 through June 30th. Please click the registration button to register your player starting June 1. Please see below for important dates regarding the start of the season. We are required by the CAYFL to turn in our registration numbers by in July, so unfortunately if you forget to register before June 30th there will be a $25.00 late fee. Registrations shut down for the season on July 31st.
We look forward to working closely with your child to make their football experience a positive one that they will remember forever.
