Spring Tackle


We are offering a modified spring tackle season for our 7th and 8th grade athletes for the first time. In partnership with our local Northbrook, Glenview  and Lake Forest youth organizations our athletes will have the opportunity to develop their football skills in preparation of their upcoming fall season. We are planning a 5 game opportunity in this modified season with our partners. The following are tentative details for the upcoming season. 

Teams will be evenly divided up into two levels. Varsity 1 (players over 150lbs) and Varsity 2 (player under 150lbs). We plan on fielding 1 Varsity 1 team and 2 Varsity 2 teams. There will be no friend or coaching requests accepted. All participants will be practicing at same fields at the same times. 

Unique to just this spring we will be only allowing 7th and 8th graders to participate. We will have weight limitations for running the ball and restrictions for playing the interior line. Striper rules will be in effect and yet to be determined. The heath and safety of our athletes remains to be our number one priority. 
Varsity 1 -
Over 150 lbs -  175+ lbs striper (can not play specialty positions)
Varsity 2 -
Under 150 lbs - 130+ lbs striper (can not play specialty positions)

All practices on turf at Skokie Playfields in Winnetka 
March 22nd - Mon/Tues/Thurs - 4:00-5:30pm 
April 1st - Tues/Thurs - 4:00-5:30pm

Welcome to the 2020 football season. This fall marks our third season of offering both tackle and flag football to our Northshore communities. We remain committed to our goal of offering a safe and fun experience while fielding competitive teams and teaching life lessons that will benefit our young athletes for years to come. 

Due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions, there might be modifications to the following as we wait for further feedback from league organizers. Any and all guidelines and restrictions put in place by state officials and our leagues will be closely followed. 

Our fall tackle season begins in late July for ages 7 thru 14 with non contact training and conditioning. Including the introduction of Heads Up blocking and tackling. In the weeks following, equipment will be distributed and teams will be formed in preparation of our preseason scrimmages and opening weekend on August 30th. 

Our fall flag season will begin in late August for grades K thru 8th with weekly team practices leading up to games starting in September.  All registered flag athletes are welcome to participate in preseason non contact tackle practices leading up to the flag season. We also encourage and welcome those who might be interested in trying football for the first time to do so during this time. This is a perfect opportunity for those who might be interested in tackle football to participate in activities and meet our players and coaches. If there might be further interest in tackle, participants have the opportunity to be outfitted with equipment and participate in tackle drills and practice using this time to evaluate before the flag season begins. 

We are looking forward to our upcoming season. As always, please contact us with any questions you might have. Make sure to check our website regularly for updates and like us on our Facebook page at Northshore Trevians Youth Football. There we will also post updates.
