SIDELINE CHEER - 2023 SEASON
Signups open through 4/10/23
THUNDER YOUTH FOOTBALL & CHEER
Football learns the basics and fundamentals of Belvidere North's playbook. This process allows your young athletes to progress from a youth league, to the middle school, and then on to high school focused on the same plays they've been learning through out their youth.
As a program, we promote sportsmanship and safety first and foremost, and provide a positive coaching philosophy that encourages our youth to return year after year. Our season starts with practices at the end of July.
Football practices are 3 to 5 days a week from 5:30pm to 7:30pm on the fields between Seth Whitman and Central Middle School. Days and times of practice will changes based on level and coaches. Our first game is in August.
Sideline cheer practices twice a week at Belvidere Central Middle School, and we cheer on our football teams at both home and away games.
Normally all games are played on Saturday starting with the Flyweights game around 9 or 9:30 and each level plays after that. Each game lasts around 90 minutes.
There will be 8 regular season games - 4 home which are at Central Middle School and 4 away games (please see NIFC website for other organizations in our conference). If the team makes it to the playoffs there is a chance for 2 additional games.
