Our 51st season of Golden Eagles Football is here! Please note these important details pertaining to the schedule and what is required from you and your players:

HIGHLIGHTS AND NEWS

 
  • The franchise position to address safety issues in the sport has enabled ALL coaches to be members of the USA Football HeadsUp program and now requires that we will have ALL coaches on the sidelines, certified in the latest and safest techniques and drills for our players
  • Jamboree (8th Annual) takes place 8/09 and 8/10 at Newton Park.  You will receive a separate note about the Jamboree as there are too many details to cover here.  For now, hold the dates as there are scrimmage games for all teams and volunteer responsibilities assigned to every team at every level.  Stay tuned!
  • We will be hosting our annual Parent's Kickoff Night on Friday, August 29th at the Village Links Golf Course in Glen Ellyn.  Hopefully the notice will allow ALL to join us!  Attendance is free and will feature food and beverages with the added bonus of free live music!  This is our way of bringing our parents(this is an adult only gathering) together in a fun atmosphere to celebrate the coming season and show our appreciation for your involvement!
