The tackle football program will continue to participate in The Chicagoland Youth Football League (TCYFL). Tackle football for children in kindergarten through 8th Grade will still be offered. Teams are divided upon a specific age and weight restrictions at each level making our program a safer and more equitable way for participants to learn the game of football. You can learn more about the age/weight parameters by visiting

This year two different cheerleading programs will be offered. Regular rec league cheer will begin in late July and end in November, as
well as the new competitive cheerleading program. Rec league will run concurrently with the football program, cheering at weekly games and events. The competitive program will compete at various competitions throughout the year depending on availability. Cheerleaders will also have the option to participate in both programs at an additional cost. Competitive Cheer squads will still participate at various league events.
