P.L.A.Y. Football Overview

Our football program starts with K, 1st, and 2nd grade flag football.  From there, players transition into our 3rd grade rookie tackle program, followed by tackle in grades 4th - 8th grade.

The K - 4th grade teams will play as part of the In-House program, where they will play other Prior Lake teams.  

The 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade teams will again be playing in the SouthWest Metro League (SWML) Traveling Program, giving all players the opportunity to compete against other youth organizations at an equally competitive skill level.

We are extremely fortunate to have PLHS Varsity Football Head Coach Matt Gegenheimer participate in the football board leadership.  His vision is to create a singular football program, beginning at the  flag football level, and works progressively all the way through the Varsity level of football.  We are working with Coach Gegenheimer to create the building blocks of a very successful football Prior Lake football program; one that is consistent, successful, and enriching throughout all levels.  

Enjoy the season and GO LAKERS!
