Evanston Jr Wildkit Tackle Football

  • The purpose of the tackle program is to teach fundamental football skills and the Love of the game to players between Kindergarten and Eighth grades. We also strive to develop each participant’s sense of self-esteem and community pride and enhance their understanding of the importance of teamwork. We believe these skills help players further their football aspirations as they transcend to the high school level.
  • We maintain very close ties with the ETHS Football coaching staff and structure our strategies in a manner that is similar and consistent with the high school.
  • We have implemented educational and behavioral standards that each player is required to abide by in order to maintain eligibility within the program and to ensure that they are following a successful path into high school. 
  • Players are asked to commit at least 10 hours per week for practice and games.

  • The Junior Wildkit has an exceptional coaching staff with 3 or more well-qualified coaches per team
