2022 Pekin JFL Tackle Schedule - Coming Soon
6 age groups of Tackle Football (8 years, 9u, 10u, 11u, 12u, 14u)
TACKLE FOOTBALL — 8-14 years on September 1st
Practices are 5-6:30, Monday through Thursday.
Games are either Saturday or Sunday depending on the level your player is at.
The levels are determined by age on September 1.
8U, 9U, 10U AND 11U play in the Saturday division.
12U AND 14U play in the Sunday division and games will take place in the afternoon.
Usually 4 of the 8 games are home and 4 away, although this can vary.
The first week of practice is mostly spent evaluating the players (Practice schedules will be released at a later date).
All players must be allowed a certain amount of game time. No one is "cut", everyone plays in our program.
All required equipment is provided except a practice jersey (an old t-shirt is fine for that). Only equipment provided by Pekin JFL can be used. No metal cleats are allowed. We have a large box of donated cleats for those in need of a free option. Mouth pieces are provide. Anyone with braces will need a specific mouth guard available for purchase at most sporting goods stores, consult with your child's orthodontist for more details.
