Who: ONLY 30 Teams Allowed - 6 Teams per grade
This event is not an open event, it is being filled by invitation only. With that in mind
there will only be thirty total teams allowed in the Jamboree. We will be looking to have six
teams in each grade 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, & 8th.
Concession Stand - by the Illinois School for the Deaf (ISD) Parents
We play all of our home regular season games at the ISD football field. They
have been gracious enough to provide us a home for the past three years and we
hope to continue in the future. We want to encourage everyone to patronize the
concession stand for food and drinks throughout the day. All of the proceeds go
directly back to the ISD students.
Jamboree & Facility Rules:
- Game Format: 20min clock (10min offense, 10min defense)
- 40yd Field - Start offense on the 40yd line, no turnovers, no special teams
- Coaches are encouraged to be on the field.
- Keep the game moving so everyone gets max amount of plays on each side
of the ball.
- Teams are responsible for their own game water, we can refill water coolers,
but will not supply them.
- Only team coolers are allowed at the facility.
- No folding chairs or tents allowed on or around the main field.
- NO ARGUING with officials you will be asked to leave the field - we will have
one IHSA licensed official and one high school player officiating per field.
- As with all youth sports SPORTSMANSHIP is our focus, not winning...the
jamboree gives players, coaches, and officials a chance to work on skills in a
“practice game” format.
- Remember...the players are kids, the coaches are volunteers, the
officials are human, and this is not the Super Bowl.
