Plainfield Saints Youth Football and Cheer

Plainfield Saints Youth Football

Registration for the 2023 Season will open February 1, 2023

 
Plainfield Saints Youth Football program provides players an opportunity to participate in an organized, supervised, safety-orientated and educational athletic program. We go beyond just teaching the fundamentals of the game, but also believe it is equally important to teach them the importance that scholastics has in the sport and in their everyday lives.  With our Plainfield Central location we have players from Plainfield, Naperville, Joliet, Aurora and Oswego. Come be a part of a top sports organization.




Practices
We typically begin practice August 1 and have 3 full weeks prior to the school year starting.  
We currently practice at the Plainfield Central High School. Practice times and field locations will be sent out by coaches.

Football will practice every week day (M-F) for 3 weeks from 6:00pm-8:00pm (depending on Plainfield Central High School schedule).  The first week of practice is an important week, as football players must have 10 hours of conditioning and fundamentals practice before then can practice full contact.

Once school starts, our practices drop to 3 times per week.  
Dates will vary based on each team. All information will be given at the parent meeting. 



Games 
Our game schedule is typically 8 games, one each weekend beginning the last weekend of August.
We will typically have 4 home games and 4 away games. 
The away games can be anywhere in our Chicagoland Pop Warner conference and we won’t know that schedule until just before games begin (this is due to teams finalizing after our certification day).
Our home games have been played at Plainfield Central High School, on their state of the art Turf field. 
Games can be scheduled on Saturdays or Sundays.
All home games will be on Sundays. 

Typically on game day, the youngest team plays first and oldest last with some exceptions.  Away weekends, our goal is for our teams to travel together, but they have to go in different directions.  Scheduling is determined by Pop Warner, and we must travel accordingly for our away games.

Competitive Levels

Division 2 (Ages 9-13)
Our Competitive levels are broken up into two divisions: Division 2 and Division 3. Division 2 is our top competitive level of play. Your child will learn the basic fundamentals and principles of football, along with our core values of teamwork and sportsmanship. The Division 2 season starts the first week of August and could go through the first part of December (Pop Warner National Championships as seen on ESPN are held the first part of December at Walt Disney World in Florida. This is for teams that win their Conference and Regional Championship). Division 2 teams are put together by the coaching staff during player evaluations and the first two weeks of practice.  Coaches are Pop Warner and USA Football Certified.

Division 3 (Ages 6-13)
Division 3 is still a competitive level of play, but does not have national playoffs (Conference and Regional Playoffs still exist). At the Division 3 level your child will once again learn the basic fundamentals and principles of football along with our core values of teamwork and sportsmanship. The Division 3 teams will spend a lot of time in these areas. The Division 3 season starts the first week of August and could end Thanksgiving weekend (the Mid-America Regional Championship for teams that win their Chicagoland conference).
