This popular Saturday program in the fall introduces children to recreational football with an emphasis on safety, setting the stage for practices and games.

Team Formation
Teams are organized by grade—1st/2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th/6th. Coaching requests are not allowed. Age levels or schools may be combined to form teams, if necessary.

Equipment and Uniforms
All players receive a team jersey. The Park District provides all other necessary equipment. Each player is responsible for all-purpose athletic shoes with rubber cleats.

Practices/Games
Each team has one practice per week (scheduled by the coach) with games on Saturdays. Games use age-specific rules. Teams play seven games, weather permitting. To find out more information on the youth flag football league visit our Forms and Downloads section at the bottom of this page.
