*NEW* Girls Fall Flag Football

We are proud to announce that LWYS is offering the IHSA’s newest varsity sport…Girls Flag Football!  There will be 2 travel teams competing in an all-girl league against nearby towns (5th & 6th and 7th & 8th grades).  This is a tremendous opportunity for the amazing female athletes in Libertyville to compete on the football field with other Chicagoland teams.

Fee is $300.  Register here.

For more information, visit the Girls Flag Football page.


This camp will focus on the finer skills of throwing, catching, and running the football, with additional emphasis on defensive pass coverage.  Athletes will get a head start on building/developing these skills for the fall, while also ending each session with fun, team-based competitions.  

The camp is for all eligible tackle players from incoming 3rd through 8th grades. 

$59/week or $99/two weeks
