Start of Practice
Monday, August 14, 2017   8:00 AM

I apologize for the delay. We have had some issues arranging times with Essentia Health but we finally have it figured out. Here is the deal for players that will be in grades 7-12 this fall.  For $75 your player will get 18 workouts with Sarah Petite from Essentia Health. Workouts will run Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:47 - 10:00 am at Proctor High School. Workouts will begin on Tuesday June 6th. On Fridays, we will have CHAMPIONS" Club which will range in events in various locations in the area. We will primarily be in the Proctor area but may go to Park Point or Pike Lake once or twice throughout the summer. 


Please make checks out to Proctor Football or you can register on line as well. On our home page of our football website you will find our registration sheet on the right hand side of the page. 

In an effort to be more proactive and accurate when ordering Proctor Football fan gear we are trying a pre-order system this year. We are ordering three types of head wear. A green hat, an orange logo hat for the hunters and outdoors' men, and a green visor. All are $20 each. Please take a look at them. We will try and get better pictures of them soon, but it gives you an idea of what to expect. Hats will be ordered in June and will arrive in August. Please order with the link to the right under ONLINE REGISTRATIONS

If you are new to Proctor Pony league football here are a few frequently asked questions. 

  • Who can play? Students in grades 3-6 in the fall of 2017. 
  • How much does it cost? $100 per player, $150 maximum per household, or $75 for students on free or reduced lunch. 
  • What are the teams like? Grades 3-4 combine to play 7 on 7 versus other Proctor teams. 5-6th combine to play 11 on 11 versus Silver Bay, Two Harbors, and Cook County. 
  • When are practices and games? Practice are arranged by each coach. 3/4 level usually practices twice a week for 1-2 hours. Games are held on Thursdays at 5:15 pm on the practice football field on Ugstad Road. 5/6 will practice 2-3 times a week with usually two games on Saturday mornings in Proctor, Two Harbors, or Silver Bay
  • All equipment is supplied by Proctor Football - Except shoes. Players can use the same baseball or lacrosse spikes.
  • When does it start? Practice start in mid August. Parent meeting will be held in the last week of July where equipment will be handed out. 

A couple of new items this year. 

  • Players will KEEP their jersey after the season. Players will be able to keep their jersey for two years as they move through Proctor Pony League football. Players will need one jersey during 3/4 level and a new one in 5/6. Usually kids will grow out of their 3/4 level jersey when they enter 5/6. BUT now a family can keep the jersey and use it for another sibling or neighbor as they move through Proctor Football. 
  • From this year forward there will be a fee to play football and fee for a jersey. If a player doesn't need a jersey they will not have to pay for one.
