Our House League PHILOSOPHY...
The purpose of the Lake Forest Recreation Department’s Youth Athletic House League programs are to provide young people with a safe and enjoyable athletic experience with the emphasis on sportsmanship and fair play. All participants will be instructed in the fundamental skill of the sport including positioning, rules and basic strategy. Every player is given an equal opportunity to participate in games and practices as well as the chance to play various positions. No participant shall, based on race, sex, national origin, or disability, be denied equal access to programs, services or activities. All players will be assured of playing at least 50 % of each game with regular practice attendance (except tackle football).
Practice = Play
Participants and spectators are expected to always exhibit appropriate behavior. Guidelines have been established to ensure safe and enjoyable programs. Additional rules may be developed for particular programs as deemed necessary by staff. “We honor the game here”
