Plainfield Saints Youth Football and Cheer

Welcome to the Plainfield Saints Family

Welcome to the Plainfield Saints!

We are a youth football and cheerleading program who participates in the Chicagoland Pop Warner League.
We accept children from 5 years old up to 15.  We have a weight matrix for our teams that ensures like-size children are playing together. 

Depending on registrations, we will have 6 football teams – Tiny Mites, Mitey Mites, Junior Pee Wee, Pee Wee, Junior Varsity and Varsity.  Some levels may have more than one team depending on registration number.  Cheer will also have these teams depending on registrations.



Practice
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, and occasionally we will practice at Aux Sable Middle 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 the 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.

Cheer will also begin practice on August 1, every week day (M-F) through labor day from 6:00pm-8:00pm. Practices are held at various Plainfield school locations, and may be inside or outside depending on the weather. 

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 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. 

On game day, usually the youngest team plays first, and oldest last with some exceptions with scheduling.  Away weekends, our teams may go in different directions, but we strive for our teams to travel together, we are at the mercy of pop warner and other teams on away games.

Competitions and Exhibitions
The Saints Cheer teams will participate in at least 2 exhibitions/competitions depending on the division/squad. The instructional level will participate in the Princess Gala. All squads will participate at the conference and regional competitions, and squads at the competitive level have the chance to qualify for Nationals in Orlando, FL. Those advancing past the regional level will be responsible for funding any associated competition, travel and accessory costs.

We look forward to meeting you!
