ARENA FOOTBALL

Romeoville Youth Football is participating in the Homer Glen Megaplex’s Indoor Football League. 
It is a fun way to keep our kids active and to enhance their football skills in a new environment. 

RYF will be looking to field teams at all levels where we have enough players.

Megaplex Indoor Football League Weights:

Widgets (They play 11 on 11) 
8 and 9 (7 year olds on a case by case basis); 90 lbs max for ball carriers
100 lbs heavy max (linemen only)

PeeWees - 
11 and Under; 110 lbs/ 115lbs

JV - 
13 and Under (No high school players); 125 lbs/130 lbs. No Ball carrying restriction

Varsity 
14 & under 170 lbs/180 lbs (9th graders allowed but weigh limit for Freshmen is 135 lbs

All players are eligible at their age as of September 1st of the current school year (September prior to start of the season). This means they would have the same age/date cutoff as for our fall conference season.
Exception: No player can turn 15 years old before December 1, 2014 and be eligible for a 14U team, regardless of grade.

Games are as follows:
Widget: Saturday mornings
Pee Wee: Sunday mornings
JV: Saturday afternoons
Varsity: Sunday afternoons

Practices will begin in mid-January. Games start the last week of February 2015 for Widgets and the 1st week in March of 2015 for the three older teams 

The cost is $250 per player on the Pee Wee, JV or Varsity teams and 
$225 if the player is on Widget teams.

The next registration will be held on Wednesday, November 12, 2014 
at the Romeoville Rec Center from 6-8.


You can contact Michael Harbert at bigharb@hotmail.com directly via email with any additional questions or if you are interested in participating.
