Important information to know regarding this year's tackle football registration:
The Crystal Lake Raiders tackle football program builds on fundamentals to enhance the kid's knowledge, skill and overall play. There are multiple levels of play based on a combination of the player's age and weight.
Combines kick off our football season. It gets the kids back into being football ready. During these two weeks kids will learn and/or refine skills. At the same time, coaches will be evaluating the kids to determine the appropriate team for them. The end of the season is typically in November or sooner depending on whether or not they make the playoffs.
All play is based on Illinois High School Association (IHSA) rules and principles. Typically, TCYFL teams have half their games at home, and travel for the other half. Games can be on Saturdays or Sundays and can generally be anytime between 9AM and 6PM. Home games are played at Lippold Field in Crystal Lake. The head coach determines which Crystal Lake field and when to hold practices.
There are a total of (43) Associations in the TCYFL program. Full list of communities are listed here;
