WE DID IT! On behalf of Northshore Trevians Youth Football we would like to thank all of our participants, families, spectators, coaches, referees, volunteers, sponsors and the Winnetka Park District. It takes a village especially during a pandemic and our village came with their A game. Over 650 participants, 53 teams and 8 weeks of Sunday scrimmages without major issue. A terrific effort by all.
Please check back regularly for spring updates. We are considering offering either a tackle or flag season if allowed and have the numbers to do so.
We regretfully announce the suspension of our 2020 fall tackle season. We encourage all tackle participants to checkout our flag offering for the fall season. We remain hopeful of a possible spring tackle opportunity with our league if appropriate and allowed.
We will be offering a non-contact fall football experience that follows new state restrictions and guidelines . Concentrating on continuous football development with weekly practices and Sunday scrimmages while staying safe. Further details will be shared with our participating families.
The game of football has never been safer and we continue to implement new policy creating a better and safer game. Some of our efforts include; certified trainers at all practices and games, restricting contact during weekly practices and continued investment in new tools and equipment to teach proper techniques safely such as Tackle Wheels. All drills are age appropriate and closely monitored by our certified coaching staff. Our coaches are required to complete yearly Heads Up Football certification, Advance Concussion Awareness and attend Positive Coaching Alliance orientation . Our league, TCYFL has one of the strictest safety policies in the country. We continue to be a leader in improving our game to make it safer. Most recently our league has adopted new modified kickoff rules. Our sport of football is truly changing to become a much safer game. We invite you to come visit us at practice and see what Northshore Trevians Football is all about.
