The Black Knights Youth Football Team is located in Bloomington, IL and has Tackle for ages 8 - 14 , Flag football for ages 6-7, and Cheerleading for ages 6-14. We have 4 levels of tackle football. Bantams 8&9, Juniors 10&11, Jr. Varsity 11&12 up to 7th Grade and Varsity 8th Grade and some 7th Grade. All of our teams play on Saturdays with the first tackle game starting at 1pm and are played local in Bloomington and Normal. We take pride in teaching them sportsmanship and fundamentals of the game, and mentoring the children and preparing our football players to go on and play at the High School level and beyond.

Our Flag program has 6 -7 year olds, all of which play on Saturdays before the tackle teams and their is some traveling for flag. At this level the kids will be taught sportsmanship and basic football fundamentals that help prepare them for the tackle program.

Our Cheerleading program has three levels: one that cheers for bantams and Juniors, one that cheers for our Jr Varsity and Varsity and one that will cheer for all 4 teams. The Cheerleaders are taught cheers, chants, jumps, and tumbling. 

In 2013 we had about 125 tackle players, 30 Flag and 30 Cheerleaders, we are a 11 year old team and are getting bigger every season!!!

The Black Knights Field for Practice and Home Games will be at RT Dunn Field, located on South Main behind the Armory
