Carlson Huskies Football

Carlson Huskies Football

Registration Is Open Until July 19

The Northern Illinois Football Conference program is designed to provide an opportunity for young people to learn the basic fundamentals of football in an atmosphere which stresses sportsmanship, teamwork, safety, and fun in a variety of divisions and levels based on age, weight and experience limitations. The Carlson Huskies team is based at our Carlson Unit.

The NIFC was created in 2006 in an effort to bring a more positive experience to the youth in our communities. While football is a competitive sport, we believe that life lessons can be taught and learned through playing the game of football. The NIFC currently has 12 organizations participating.
