The Middleweight level is made up of 11 and 12 year olds (along with 13 year olds that are under 85 pounds). During the regular season (practices after the first game), the Middleweights practice on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 4:30 to 6:30 at Welles Park. Just like at all our levels, we expect Middleweights to show up and participate in practice. In return, we will give them a rewarding and positive experience. To gain a full understanding of our practice schedule, both Preseason and In Season, it is highly recommended that all parents read our practice policy.

The goal of the Middleweight level is to have the players master the basics of football (blocking and tackling) and, over the course of the season, introduce more complex defensive and offensive formations and concepts, along with more advanced blocking schemes. We also emphasize providing the players with a positive environment in both practice and games. Finally, we believe their experience at North Side will have them gain an appreciation of team sports. The aspects of team sports that we teach them are discipline, commitment, effort, camaraderie, and respect. We believe that if we maximize the appreciation of the sport, we will also maximize the enjoyment the kids get from playing football.
