The Lake Minnetonka Athletic Association (LMAA) is a youth football league dedicated to helping young people in grades 1st through 8th to learn the fundamentals of football, learn the value of teamwork and have fun doing it.

The LMAA was established in 1961, serving as the governing board for the youth football programs of its member/area organizations:  Hopkins, Maple Grove, Minnetonka, Edina, St. Louis Park and Wayzata/Plymouth.


LMAA - A Culture of Safety

We, the LMAA Board, are parents first and football board members second.  We strongly believe in creating an environment that is as safe as realistically possible for every one of our young athletes, including our own children. 


The LMAA provides EMT / Paramedic services at every game.

Questions about weather and your game... ?

Games will be cancelled due to field conditions specifically for grass fields and severe weather - especially lightning.  Click on image for field status. 

Most games for LMAA are on artificial turf fields which should be good to go even if it is raining.  Exception is severe weather / lightning.

LMAA drive for Sportsmanship

As a developmental football league, the LMAA strives to provide a great experience for every player on the field. Our league philosophy is to not promote game scores, have playoffs, or recognize team champions; but to promote and recognize good sportsmanship. To aid in this effort, we have a form (registration form) on a Sportsmanship page in the left column. This page is available to registered coaches and referees (must be signed in to your account to view the page) to nominate a team when they feel the team demonstrated sportsmanship worthy of recognition.
