  • All levels

Tryout Information

  • No cut sport.
  • Practice begins on August 12, 2024 at 8 a.m. on the practice field.
  • Days of Practice: The Illinois High School Association rules state that a football player must have 12 days of practice before playing in the first game.

Equipment Needed

  • Shoes, mouth guard, lock
  • Mouth Guards: The rules require each player to have and wear a mouth guard that is visible and attached to the helmet – clear mouth guards are NOT allowed.  If you have a particular problem, see your dentist for advice and counsel.  Mouth guards are available at most sporting goods stores.
  • Football Shoes: The 2024 rules state that cleats on football shoes may be no longer than 1/2 inch in length. There are several different types of shoes available; however, if you purchase new shoes, be sure that they meet the requirement.  Our staff strongly recommends shoes with screw-on cleats, not the molded cleat shoes. To break in your shoes, get them early and wear them before practice starts.
