The football season consists of 9 regular season games, followed by playoffs. Games are played on Saturday or Sunday at varying times. Home games are at Lane Tech and away games are throughout the Chicagoland area. Home games at Lane are always on Sundays. Away games will be either Saturday or Sunday. We will not receive the schedule until mid August. The first game of the 2021 season will be on August 28th or 29th. The final regular season game will be October 23rd or 24th. Not all teams make the playoffs. Your child's team has about a 2/3 chance of making the playoffs. The playoffs are single elimination and may last three weeks. The first playoff games would be the weekend of 10/30. Championship games are the weekend of November 13th.
$200 - $400 depending on age, options selected, and date of registration.
We will never turn away a player for financial reasons. Scholarships and flexible payment plans are available to all families who need assistance with the registration fee.
