We are excited to start up another season of Yorkville football and cheerleading. YYTF will be supplying helmets to all tackle football players this season. If you already have a helmet, but the sticker is dated 2020 or before, we will need you to drop the helmet off so we can get those helmets reconditioned. Once again, YYTF will take care of the reconditioning of these helmets at no cost to you. If your athlete has out grown their helmet or they are moving up into the 8th grade or high school programs, we will always take donated helmets.
As Yorkville Youth Tackle Football and Cheerleading continues to evolve, we are always searching for new and innovative ways to improve upon our organization.
As we move into our fourth year with NIUYFL , our objectives—as always—are to make greater gains from a competitive perspective against our NIUYFL opponents and have even more teams vie for the championship! We are excited that our conference is continuing to grow and is always looking to add great programs.
The structure for the 2022 season will be the similar to years past. The NIUYFL is still made up of single age groups: 8u, 9u, 10u, 11u, and 12U (7th grade). Teams will be based on a cut off date of July 31st. This will allow most children to play with his/her classmates. For example if your child turns 9 before 7/31/2022 then they will play on the 9U team. The only exception to this cutoff date is older 7th graders that turn 13 prior to 7/31/2022. These athletes will be allowed to play on the 12U team. At this point, 8th grade football will remain with YMS. With the addition of more programs coming into our conference, NIUYFL will be looking at having 2 divisions in each age group in an effort keep the games competitive. More information will be forthcoming once rosters and teams have been filled.
In the event that we have more than one team at a certain age level, all YYTF teams will be drafted the same way we have done in the past to guarantee parity between the teams. All kids will be evaluated and drafted to a team. There are no tryouts, and there are no cuts.
We look forward to being back on the football fields and sidelines for the 2022 season! Go Foxes!
