About Us

Thunder Youth Football

Thunder Youth Football is a feeder program designed to teach 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. 

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 the practices at the end of July. 

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. 

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. 

2018: Middleweight - 2nd Place

2018: Lightweight - Playoff Qualifier

2017: Heavyweight - Champion
