Lexington's football tradition will continue as the Park District will again present a Youth Football Program for any child entering 3rd grade to 8th grade in the fall. Lexington is part of the Heart of Illinois Junior Football Conference.
This conference is comprised of teams from Blue Ridge, El Paso, Eureka, Fieldcrest, Fisher, Heyworth, Tri Valley (LeRoy and Downs combined) and Lexington. The Heart of Illinois Junior Football Conference is divided into three divisions: Bantams (3rd and 4th grade), Junior Varsity (5th and 6th grade) and Varsity (7th and 8th grade).
Football practices are determined by the coaches at each level. Games are on Saturdays. The focus of youth football is for every player to play during a game. Coaches are instructed to teach the young football players how to throw a football, run with a football, block, tackle and learn the rules of football in order to facilitate their progression towards high school football.
Registration sign-up: Football Registration Form
All players need to provide the Park District with a copy of their birth certificate and school physical at the time of registration. This is mandated by our insurance carrier.
