Our Chicagoland Conference recently implemented changes to the age/weight levels of football we can fill this year. These changes were made to increase player safety and to ensure all of our participants have the best possible youth football experience. Our teams will now consist of players with just a two-year age span, and the older/lighter player has been eliminated. For example, the 10U team will be made up of only 9 and 10 year olds, with a maximum weight limit of 125 pounds, and any 9 or 10 year old over this weight limit will be a striper.
Because of these changes our teams are filling up quickly, and some levels have just a few spots left. Overall, we may have to close football registration earlier than usual.
With this in mind, I am highly encouraging all of last year's families to register their players as soon as possible, if they haven't already done so, to ensure their child has a spot.
Registration can be done either online at opyf.com or in-person on Saturday, July 21st, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Oriole Park field house gym. Football equipment and uniform handout will also be held at this time.
Looking forward to another great season of Falcon football and cheer!
