NSYF participates in The Chicagoland Youth Football League (TCYFL), the largest independent youth football organization in the country with over 48 participating Chicagoland communities. Creating better competition and fair play opportunities for all.
STARTING THEM EARLY
NSYF offers tackle football for ages 6 thru 14. We are the only youth organization in the North Shore area to offer tackle football for 6-9 year olds. Teaching the correct tackling and blocking techniques at younger ages makes for a safer game.
Our number one priority is the health and safety of our young athletes, this is why TCYFL and NSYF mandates that all coaches be certified in Advanced Concussion Training. Coaches are also required to be certified in the new Heads Up Blocking and Tackling techniques.
PLAYING MORE FOOTBALL
The NSYF football season runs longer than other local programs. Practice begins in late July with the introduction of Heads Up Football. Our season ends in mid November with a full playoff schedule, ending with Championship Weekend.
Unlike many local leagues in the North Shore area who have a single game playoff day, NSYF participates in a full playoff schedule which leads to a Live-Streamed TCYFL Championship Game at all age levels.
