SAFETY: Safety of our football families is and has always been Northshore Trevians first priority.  To that end, we will be following all safety guidelines from the CDC, the State of Illinois, and the Winnetka Park District.  As we know, these guidelines are ever changing so as we get closer to the season, our guidelines will be posted on our website - www.NTYFootball.org.

COVID-19 UPDATE
To meet all state guidelines and restrictions in place Northshore Trevians Football has moved the flag fall season to an in house developmental program. Offering grade level team pods of 12 that practice during the week and scrimmage other team pods on Sundays. No travel or play against other communities. All practices and scrimmaging will take place at the Winnetka Park District facilities. 

WE'RE BACK!

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.
