The Hopkins Football League is an entirely volunteer driven youth football league serving kids in 3rd through 8th grade. Your child does not have to attend Hopkins School District 270 to participate. Each year we have approximately 150 players participating on more than 10 tackle football teams and we have recently added flag football to the mix. HFL regular season tackle teams participate in the Lake Minnetonka Athletic Association and play games against other area teams from Minnetonka, Wayzata, Mound, Orono, St. Louis Park, and Maple Grove.
The HFL seeks to promote the growth and development of our players in a fun, safe and competitive environment that maximizes participation and improves players' skills while developing sportsmanship, teamwork, and self-confidence.
Please check out our Key Dates tab for information on free clinics, season start dates and Dick's 20% Off Shop Event.
We are excited to have you as part of the Hopkins football community. The HFL season begins with practices in mid-August followed by a game schedule that begins late August and concludes in mid-October at the beginning of MEA week.
HFL Season Cost: $275
Fee includes helmet, pads, and game pants that all need to be returned at the final game of the year. Also included is a game jersey that players keep at the end of the season. Players are responsible for providing their own cleats, mouth guard, athletic cup and socks.
