The Glen Ellyn Golden Eagles Youth Football program participates in the west suburban Bill George Youth Football League. It is a competitive travel program where players learn and develop the fundamentals of tackle football, teamwork, sportsmanship and leadership in a supervised, organized and safe atmosphere. Teams are formed based on age, weight, and ability.
With the SuperBowl just completed, there is no better time to scratch our own itch and start thinking of warmer days at Newton Park with the Glen Ellyn Golden Eagles. This season, the GEGE along with the GEPD are undertaking a new approach to registration. Technology has now afforded both the Golden Eagles as well as the Park District the opportunity to capture all of our registrants information on line. ALL registrations MUST be done on line beginning this season. Due to the success of our registrations in the past, we will still host 2 days at Ackerman Sports Complex to fit players for uniforms, capture sizes, as well as answer any questions families may have regarding the upcoming season.
There are many changes with the Golden Eagles and the most substantial is the extension of our Flag division to now incorporate 3rd graders for the first time. There are many guidelines that will be addressed to insure the safety of all participants, and the plan is to have a separate 3rd grade level for all players that have not reached the age of 10. A hugely successful expansion is expected for this endeavor and your support will guarantee a fun time for all involved.
There will be numerous emails sent out in the next few weeks as reminders, as well as more clarifications regarding the changes for this season, so please look for them. The GEGE have listed the dates for registration at Ackerman below as well as the link to the Park District program for registration. Please note again that ALL registrations will be on-line beginning this year, so try to do so before attending our dates at Ackerman.
The Golden Eagles success ONLY exists due to the support of all of our families, so we thank you for that continued support and look forward to seeing you on one of the dates below.
Saturday, February 21st - 9:00am to 4:00pm - Ackerman Sports Complex
Saturday, March 7th - 9:00am to 4:00pm - Ackerman Sports Complex
Flag Football will be registering Kindergarten,1st and 2nd graders - must be 7 and under on September 1st, 2015. 3rd graders cannot be 10 on Sept 1st, 2015.
It is imperative that ALL TACKLE AND FLAG FOOTBALL PLAYERS ATTEND ONE OF THESE TWO DATES!
