Spring 7 on 7
Flag Football
 
Our Spring flag football program is the perfect low commitment activity to get in some outdoor activity after winter. It is a fun but competitive Travel 7 on 7  flag football program that the TCYFL operates. 2nd-8th grade games will be held on Saturday and Sundays at Carmel High School, Stevenson, and Olympic Park (Schaumburg) with optional practices. Based on our location we should be playing most of our games at Carmel and Stevenson. This is a modification to last year due to the surrounding communities choosing to participate at all levels in TCYFL. The K-1st division will be an in-house league with Grant, Lake Villa, Mundelein, Johnsburg, and Round Lake and game being played on Sundays at those surrounding communities.
