A Little About The Stateline Comets Football

   The Stateline Comets Youth Football is a program that offers youth flag and youth tackle football programs based in Spring Grove, Illinois, and we welcome players & families 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 Football Team. The program has a rich, long standing tradition of giving kids an opportunity to create wonderful lifetime memories while learning the fundamentals of the game from our certified and knowledgeable coaches.

   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 start in early August. Most seasons (games) start on Saturday, the week before Labor Day weekend. Then off for the Holiday, and games resume the weekend afterward. Games and playoffs conclude in October and the Comets Organization's 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 2022. 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 South Eastern Youth Football Alliance (www.SEYFA.org) that is located amongst 16 communities including Milwaukee, Racine, Kenosha, and Walworth counties of South Eastern Wisconsin. As well as McHenry and Lake counties of Northern Illinois.
