About Tackle Football

The League:  Millard United Sports has partnered with many of the premier youth football organizations in the area to form the Midwest United Football League.  This new league will give our families some options that were not available in past years, including 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.  At the same time, we will retain many of the benefits that have made MUS football great in previous years.  We still have the full support and backing of Millard Public Schools and act as feeder schools for the three MPS high schools.  Players will have greater freedom to play with the teams they choose as all MPS schools now have open registration.  We will also keep the format and style of football very similar to what our players have been used to in the past. 

Our football program will be broken into two separate components; a regular-season league, and a pre-and post-season tournament option.  Everyone who registers for our program will automatically be signed up for our regular season league.  If our players choose, they can also select to play in additional tournaments outside of the season.

League Season: 

  • Games will begin in mid-August and the season will go through early November.  
  • Teams will play 6 regular season league games with an additional 2 games at the end of the season that will be player and coach choice for locations.
  • 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. 
  • Our Divisions are based on grade levels for the 2021-2022 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 late August and the season goes through October or early November.  Teams will play 8 games during the regular season and games can be played on Saturdays or Sundays. 

Pre-and Post Season Play:  Millard United Sports wants to make available to all players and teams the opportunity to excel and develop their players and compete against other top teams in the region and country. As such we have decided to allow teams to participate in pre and post-season tournament play around the country.  Our school directors and football committee will work closely with our teams to make sure that any teams that desire to play are guided toward an appropriate tournament for their age, abilities, and comfort levels.

The option to travel for tournaments will be at the discretion of the coach, players and parents involved and will be funded outside of your normal player registration fees.  If your team decides to participate in a tournament outside of the regular league season, costs and timelines will be discussed with the full team, parents will have the opportunity to accept or decline to participate, and a combination of team fees and fundraising will be used to cover the cost of the tournament entry fees.  Any player who chooses not to participate is not penalized for not participating. 

If your team declines to participate in an out-of-season tournament but your player would like the opportunity to compete, we will place you with a team who is needing additional players for their travel team.  You will then participate and fundraise with that team for any pre- or post-season play. 

  • Practice times & locations - 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.

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.

  • All players are required to have a physical prior to starting practices (can be completed by your doctor or Urgent Care & must be current).  
  • All players that are in 7th grade are required to complete a FREE OrthoNebraska ImPact Test prior to starting practices. (Dates will be posted within the Tackle Dates page.)
  • Players will need to provide a copy of their birth certificate and proof of grade (report card) to their coach for team weigh-ins.
