Get ready for some football!
We getting geared up for another exciting, action-packed tackle football season!!
For your reference, below is the 2015 Tackle Football calendar as it stands now. We don't expect much, if anything, to change.
As a reminder, the 2015 season will be our inaugural campaign in the Central Suburban Youth Football League. We'll be playing against local teams from Buffalo Grove, Evanston, Glenview, Highland Park, Kenilworth, Lake Forest, Northbrook, Skokie, Niles, Norridge, Winnetka, and Wilmette. We're excited to be a member community of this fantastic organization, and look forward to a great season. Travel will be significantly less than in previous years, an athletic trainer will be present at every game, and the league start date is closely aligned with IHSA guidelines.
