Practice/Game Facilities

All practices and home games are played at Markwoodland Park, 6001 N. Frostwood Parkway, Peoria (Mark Bills Middle School). A map of practice locations for each division is also available.

Practice Schedule

Practices are generally 4 nights per week early in the season, which is necessary to condition the athletes. After conditioning, the practices will vary between 3-4 nights per week. As the season progresses, the practices will generally be reduced to 2-3 nights per week.


See the age/weight restrictions for each team below. Experience is not necessary. We strive to let every player learn the game of football safely. Winning is important, but it is not primary, this is a developmental league.
