The purpose of the program will be to teach third and fourth-grade students about the game of football and encourage a fun activity to develop their interest in the sport. The 3rd and 4th Grade Flag Football program is seeking parent volunteers to coach in order to make the program successful. We are asking parents to consider volunteering, no matter your background with the sport of football. Without enough volunteers, participation in the program may be limited on a first come, first serve basis. Please contact Chris at the TAC (763-972-3365, ext 1202, or if you are interested in helping or indicate this on your child’s registration form. There will be a coach’s meeting for all coaches the week before the season starts. The date, time, and location of the meeting will be emailed to coaches.

Delano Tigers 5th & 6th Grade Tackle Football

NEW – Delano Tigers 5th & 6th Grade Tackle Football will be starting one week earlier this year to give our players more time to develop before playing competitive games. Delano Community Education, with support from the Delano Lions Club, will be offering a youth football program for the 5th and 6th-grade students in the Delano area. The purpose of the program will be to teach 5th and 6th-grade students to have fun playing football, develop an interest in the sport, and learn the basic fundamentals of the game. Football provides a forum for children to develop a respect for oneself and others, build self-esteem, develop physical skills, and experience a metaphoric environment that teaches life lessons and skills.

  • New for the 2019 season! 5th & 6th-Grade athletes will play on separate teams. 5th-graders will now play in their own division against other 5th-grade teams in the league and 6th-graders will also play in their own division against other 6th-grade teams
  • Coaches are needed! Please contact Chris Runke if you are interested in coaching your child’s team.

Tuesday/Thursday evenings & Saturdays Aug 20 – Oct 15 | Times TBA
(Saturday times will be announced once the league schedule is determined)

Delano A’s eliminated in second straight upset

HUTCHINSON – The Delano A’s – who went 19-1 in the North Star League season, were seeded #1 in the Region 12C playoffs, and were a favorite pick to win the Class C state championship – were upset for the second straight time in the NSL/Region 12C playoffs, losing 12-8 to Buffalo Sunday.

The loss ended Delano’s season.

The A’s had been upset by eighth-seeded Loretto in the first game of the Region 12C tournament, 5-3.

The Bulldogs scored 11 runs in the first two innings off Jeremy Maschino and Max Otto, and held on for victory.

Look for a full recap in Friday’s Delano Herald Journal.


Larks fall to Kernels 11-1 in Region 12C; will face Maple Lake Thursday

HUTCHINSON – After a big upset victory over top-seeded Delano, #8 Loretto Larks fell 11-1 in eight innings to the #5 Cokato Kernels in their second game of the Region 12C tournament Saturday in Hutchinson.

The loss means the Larks are scheduled to play Maple Lake Thursday at Hutchinson at 7:30 p.m. Look for those results online at, or in next week’s Herald Journal.

Cokato jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the first inning, and salted the game away with six runs in the eighth to take an 11-1 victory over Loretto in eight innings via the 10-run rule Saturday.

Check out Friday’s Delano Herald Journal for a full recap.
