Welcome to Stateline Comets Football

The Stateline Comets Youth Football program is a youth Flag and Tackle football program based in Spring Grove, Illinois, and we welcome players from many neighboring communities. Flag football is available for ages 4-6, and Tackle is offered for Grades 1st thru 8th.

Our program which started in the early 80’s, is known primarily as a youth feeder program for the Richmond-Burton Community High School Rockets. The program has a rich, long standing tradition of giving kids an opportunity to create wonderful lifetime memories.

Our Coaches are all USA Football, and Heads Up Certified. Annual background checks are performed by National Center Safety Initiatives (NCSI) on all coaches prior to coaching.

All players have a starting position on a team and all players play. All team positions are safely regulated by grade, weight, age, and skill level. Teams have maximum ball carrier weights, and weights are monitored annually by the league based upon league weight averages of all teams in all grades.

Skills and Conditioning Camps are held on several dates in June and July, and practices begin in August. Most seasons (games) start on Saturday the week before Labor Day weekend. Then the Holiday is off, and games resume the weekend afterward. Games and playoffs conclude in October and the Comets organization banquet is held the following Saturday or the 1st Saturday in November.

The Stateline Comets Youth Football program's Championship winning tradition has continued from as far back as the 1980’s, and as recent as 2017. But despite just being champions, the Comets real program success is proudly displayed year after year in the Pride, Commitment, and Involvement shown amongst the Players, Parents, Coaches, Families, and Sponsors. When you become a Comet, you are Family.

The Comets are a member of the Southeastern Youth Football Association ( that is located amongst 13 communities in Southeastern Wisconsin in Milwaukee, Racine, Kenosha counties, and McHenry County in Northern Illinois.


2019 “early bird” discounted online registration begins April 1st 2019. General walk-up registration and OUR ANNUAL required Equipment Fitting will be held on Saturday May 11TH from 8:00 AM to Noon at Thelen Park - 8400 Winn Rd in Spring Grove, IL 60081.
