    What Makes NORTH SHORE FOOTBALL Different?

    OUR LEAGUE
    NSYF participates in The Chicagoland Youth Football League (TCYFL), the largest independent youth football organization in the country with over 50 participating Chicagoland communities. Creating better competition and fair play opportunities for all.

    STARTING THEM EARLY
    NSYF offers tackle football for boys and girls 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 a younger age makes for a Safer  and Better game.

    COACHES TRAINING
    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 all Heads Up Blocking and Tackling techniques. As well all coaches are required to participate in advanced concussion training. We continue to limit contact during the practice week utilizing new training tools such as the Shadowman Tackling System and Tackling Wheel. 

    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.

    TRUE PLAYOFFS
    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.


    WHO IS TCYFL?

    The Chicagoland Youth Football League (TCYFL) is the largest independent youth tackle football league in the United States, fielding thousands of players on hundreds of teams from over 50  Member Communities throughout Chicagoland and SE Wisconsin.
