About Tackle Football

The League:  MUS is partnered with many of the premier youth football organizations in the Midwest United Football League.  This league gives teams the ability to attend tournaments outside of the league, participate with regional and national travel teams, and compete with other Nebraska teams at the highest levels. Click here for more info on the UFL

Our Divisions: are based on grade levels for the 2022-2023 school year.  

  • Parents can elect to have the child play up one grade level.
  • MUS is a FEEDER PROGRAM & Players are placed on teams based on school pathways, (Millard North, Millard South, Millard West, and OOD-Out Of District). 

Our Season: Games typically begin in mid or late-August and the season goes through October or early November. 

  • Teams will play 8 games during the regular season
  • Games may be played on Saturdays or Sundays
  • 2-3 games per season may require some minimal travel to games outside of the immediate Omaha area. 
  • Practice times & locations are set by coaches and MUS does not keep track of team practice schedules. Please contact coaches for practice schedules. Practices typically don't start until August; most teams practice at least three times per week.

Pre-and Post Season Play:  Teams may participate in pre and post-season tournament play.  The option to travel for tournaments is at the discretion of the coach/parents & will be funded outside the registration fees.  Costs & timelines will be discussed with parents who may accept or decline to participate - a combination of team fees and fundraising may be used to cover the cost.  Players that choose not to participate are not penalized. 

Our Coaches & Teams: Rosters will be given to coaches at the Coach's Meeting in late May. Coaches will not contact players prior to the meeting
