Farmington Valley MudHogs 2017 Season
Celebrating 20 years of youth football in the Farmington Valley. The MudHogs have evolved to be the premier youth football and cheerleading organization in the Valley. Our main focus is player saftety across all leagues, we follow USA Footballs Heads Up guidelines for all our coaches. All Coaches are Heads Up Certified every year, all coaches are CPR and also CDC Concunssion Certifed along with background checks. With these changes we have seen a step decline in injuries across all divisions. We also continue to use new tackleing techniques to take the head and neck out of the play, all coaches are using this new technique that has also shown a decrease in injuries.
This year we are in our 2nd year as a NFL Flag affiliated organizion, our main goal for NFL Flag is to have kids have fun while learning the game of football. If your child plays another fall sport, we hope that they can also play NFL Flag with only 1 practice a week and games on Sunday, it's an easy way to get together and go have fund playing flag football.
New this year we have joined with Farmington Recreation to help us with the registration process, although payments will be made to Farmington Recreation everything else about our league is staying the same. We are continuing to grow our participation numbers and this year will be no different.
We look forward to seeing you at the field.
