We are a group of committed volunteers, experienced coaches (Not Dads), well versed athletes and active community members who have joined forces to create a well-balanced, safe and competitive football league for young athletes looking to play competitive tackle football. Our coaches are trained, certified, experienced and qualified. Our athletes range from 5th to 8th grade and bring different skill levels and experience to the playing field, all with a desire to play against some of the best travel youth football teams in the region.
Football is the ultimate team sport. Our number one goal is for kids to have fun and stay safe while learning that commitment, hard work, sportsmanship and the ability to learn will lead to success on and off the football field. We strive to build camaraderie and create opportunities for all kids to develop and find success, as well as have a sense of pride in representing their community.
Practices happen 3-4 days a week (At our Awesome Turf Practice Facility just over in Rosemont) and focus on developing a wide range of skills, through drills, conditioning and film breakdown, learning technique, sharpening fundamentals and scrimmages. We follow strict safety guidelines as set forth by the Illinois High School Sports Association with minimum live contact and the official rules of Pop Warner Football, which mandates kids compete with others of similar age and size. Practices also follow a Heads-Up Football Training approach, with tested data that show far less injuries on the field. Our games are played once a week and require some area travel. We prepare our football players to be ready for high school football, athletics and beyond.
