2021 FM Athletics Youth Football Registration


Welcome to 2021 FM Athletics Youth Football Registration!

We are ready to celebrate our 50th season of youth football in 2021 with YOU!

Fargo Athletics, Inc. was formed in 1972 to promote youth tackle football education and participation in the Fargo-Moorhead area. The organization is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit corporation and all board members are volunteers. During the 2019 season, we registered and rostered over 1400 youth players. 

The philosophy of FM Athletics is to provide an opportunity for all youth to play football, including those who might not otherwise have the chance.  It is the intent of the league to foster sportsmanship, team play, and leadership.  A limited number of scholarships are available. If you desire to pursue this option, please contact us via email (  All scholarship information is kept strictly confidential.

Team Placement/Rosters:

Because of the complexity of rostering 1400+ players, registrants (as well as coaching candidates) cannot be guaranteed placement on the same team or with the same coaching group each year. Additionally, we are unable to accommodate specific carpool or friend/teammate requests at this time. One component of forming teams is date of registration. I.e.  first-registered, first-rostered.

Athlete and Parent Code of Conduct:

Any verbal or physical abuse of officials, coaches, board members and/or other unsportsman-like conduct will not be tolerated. Only players, officials, medical personnel and board members are allowed on the fields due to safety issues and  insurance liability. Failure to comply with this code may result in disciplinary action and/or removal from the league.
