The Arctic Blast is a Semi-Pro football team that plays from May thru August in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. The Arctic Blast were Champions of the Northern Lights Football League in 2011!!! Our players do not get paid, we play for "love of the game". We play a League schedule that consists of eight games; we also play a few non-league games each year.
Unfortunately, the Calumet County Bucks team could not find enough players to field a roster that they desired and as a result the team has folded. The team had enough players to field a team, but they did not want to put their guys through the gauntlet of a semi-pro schedule without a specific amount of players which they did not have, and they did not think they could get before beginning the season. We wish the Bucks the best and hopefully in time they will be able to come back into the NXFL.
