Every thing we do is for the purpose of teaching young kids and youth life lessons so they may grow as individuals, not just now but also in the future. We do this by instilling the values of football and cheerleading - commitment, effort, teamwork, structure, and RESPECT. We just happen to play football and cheer along the way. It seems to be working out. We hope you come join our North Side family. You won't regret it.

100% of High School Coaches we work with agree that it is beneficial for your child to play football before coming to high school. Read what some of the area coaches have to say about our program.
"North Side Youth Football is a top quality football experience for our youth in the Chicagoland area. The type of player that comes from NSYF onto the High School scene is more than capable of playing the game at a higher, and safer, level. I have been extremely impressed by how well structured and organized the coaches are in the program."
Mike Passarella, Head Coach, Depaul College Prep
"North Side Youth Football is an outstanding organization that prioritizes safety, sportsmanship, and character. As the head coach at Payton College Prep, I was fortunate to work with numerous NSYF alumni. All of those players were thoroughly prepared for high school football and many were key contributors to the success of Payton football."
George Klupchak, Head Coach, Walter Payton College Prep, 2015-2020
"Northside Titan players arrive to our high school program with a strong understanding of football fundamentals and a passion for the game. They bring a level of commitment and discipline that always makes them and their families a great addition to our community. Over the past 3 years I have had the pleasure of coaching over 25 former Titans at Saint Ignatius. Northside Titan football is a top youth football program in Chicago and I highly recommend both experienced tackle football players and beginner athletes to consider joining their football program."
Matt Miller, Head Coach, St. Ignatius College Prep
