Alden - Conger Youth Football is a tackle football program for grades 3-6 in the Alden-Conger and surrounding areas. We are a part of the SCYF League.
This page is to help us better communicate and update with parents, families, and the community about schedules, changes, events, and important dates involving our program.
Mission: To teach the basics and understandings of tackle football in a safe and fun environment.
There will be NO PRACTICE on Tuesday, Oct 9 for anyone because of all the rain today and what is expected for tomorrow. The field is already filled with puddles. Again NO PRACTICE on Tuesday, Oct. 9 for 3rd/4th, 5th or 6th grade teams.
Everyone will practice as usual on Wed, Oct. 10.
There will be no practice Thurs, Oct. 11 for anyone because of the 6th grade team game that night. Again NO PRACTICE on Thursday, Oct. 11 for 3rd/4th, 5th or 6th grade teams.
All teams will play in Waseca on Saturday, Oct. 13. We won't have the game time schedule for the games in Waseca until later in the week As soon as we have it, we will send it out. According to what the league sent out at the beginning of the year, the 3rd/4th & 5th grade teams will have two games each on Sat, Oct. 13 and the 6th grade team will just have one game since they will already have played one game Thurs night. Of course that could change depending on weather and field conditions.
Due to a JV and JrHi football game being played here in Alden on Tues, Oct. 9, we have had to change the date of the 6th grade playoff game and that changes the practice schedule some for everyone. Please read the new posts about practice and the changed game date:
The Alden-Conger 6th grade team will host Byron in the first round of playoffs for our division on Thursday, Oct. 11 at 6:30 pm here in Alden. Players should be at the field at 6:00 pm. Win or lose, they will also play on Sat, Oct. 13 in Waseca. (There are no games Thursday night for the 4th or 5th grade teams, this is 6th grade only.)
THE INFO BELOW IS ONLY FOR THE 4TH GRADE TEAMS! If you don't have anyone playing on a 4th grade team, you can ignore this message.
The 5th and 6th grade teams follow their regular schedule for Saturday morning at Kingsland High School, 705 N Section Ave, Spring Valley, MN 55975.
Below is additional information on the 4th grade team (3rd & 4th grade players) for this Saturday's games in Kasson, MN. Please note the games are at night, under the lights, at 7:00 pm and 8:15 pm. Please feel free to forward and share this with anyone you feel would like the info. I sent it to everyone, but again, only the 4th grade teams (Alden Red and Alden Black) are playing in Kasson on Saturday night.
KMYFA is excited to host week 5 of Rookie Tackle, Saturday night, under the lights! (KMYFA is Kasson-Mantorville Youth Football Association)

#13 (Waseca 2) vs #10 (Alden Red) JV field 4 west end @ 8:15 PM
We got a call from the Glenville coach yesterday and they now have a conflict with the Tues, Oct. 2 games for the 5th and 6th grade so those games have been moved to Thurs, Oct. 4.
NEW SCHEDULE for OCT. 2-4!!!
There WILL BE practice for everyone on Tuesday, Oct. 2. (Regular practice on Wed, Oct. 3 as always) and NO PRACTICE FOR ANYONE ON THURS, OCT. 4 because the 5th and 6th grade teams will be playing games in Glenville that evening.
TImes did not change, only the date changed, so the 5th grade team will still play at 6:00 pm and the 6th grade team will still play immediately following the 5th grade team game, at approx. 7:00 pm on Thursday, Oct. 4 at the Glenville High School football field, in Glenville, MN.
Faron did announce this to the kids last night at practice so they know but wanted to be sure all you moms and dads know and have the info too. Thanks.
[09/20/18] The 5th and 6th grade game in Glenville tonight has been postponed due to the weather. A new date will be decided and announced later. Please share to be sure everyone knows. Thanks!
