Baseball season may be in full swing, but it’s already time to tackle youth football registration.

If you’ve got a kid who loves football, mark your calendars now for these sign-up dates, which are coming up fast, in many communities in the Champaign-Urbana area and beyond.


Central Illinois Youth Football League, which includes several Champaign-Urbana teams, will hold registration on May 21 and June 11 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Carpenters Local 243 at 402 S. Duncan Rd. in Champaign. Online registration will also be an option very soon. For more information, check out the CIYFL Facebook page, the CIYFL website or email [email protected]

The youth football programs in Mahomet, Rantoul, St. Joe and Danville are all affiliates of the CIYFL and hold their own registrations. We’ve included sign-up information for those communities that have posted details. We will add more registration information as it becomes available.



Rantoul Falcons football will hold a sign-up on May 11 and June 8 from 5-8 p.m. at the Rantoul Library. Half of fees are due at sign-up and volunteer fees are also due at this time. Bring your child’s physical, birth certificate and proof of residence. All fees must be paid in full by June 30.
