Brainerd Warrior Football Association Meeting

Next Meeting: Tuesday, May 3

Our meetings are the first Tuesday of each month.  Everyone that loves Warrior Football is welcome to attend!


Our mission is to support Brainerd football programs at all levels.  This support comes in the form of financial, in-kind contributions and volunteering time and talents to further the principles of "The Warrior Way."


We are looking for parents of all Warrior Football players to come and be involved. 

Welcome to Brainerd Football and The Warrior Way

2020 Freed

Warrior Football has been a staple within the Brainerd Community and the state of Minnesota for many decades.  Its rich history and tradition is centered around the ideals of hard work, determination and servitude.  Our goal is to direct these young student athletes into becoming exceptional people in families, communities, workplaces and our world. With each season comes a renewed love for Warrior Football with the youth in our BYAA Football program, working its way through the Middle School and into the High School.  Within each program you will find coaches who share a love and passion for the game of football and a desire to build and  maintain relationships with the youth who choose to play this great game.

The ultimate goal of Warrior Football is to create “so they believe they received” the best football experience from BYAA all the way through their senior year. This encompasses the philosophy of the Warrior WAY but also the building blocks of Warrior PRIDE finding our Purpose, building Relationships, Improving daily, being Disciplined in how we play the game and live our lives, and bring a level of Energy and Effort to everything we do.  We feel this is not only our brand, but the code by which we want to coach, play, and live.


Special thanks to everyone who supports and shows a great level of interest and love for what the Warrior Football Program stands for.  Our coaches and players are grateful for the support you bring to the program each and every year.  Warrior Football is truly a program centered around our community.  


Once a Warrior Always a Warrior
