Organization Information

The Belleville Little Devils was founded in 1957. The Little Devils are the oldest Football Club in Belleville, and the Tri-County Football Organization. The Little Devils has always been a 100% volunteer organization. The board members, coaches, assistant coaches, field maintenance and painting personel, concession workers, and everyone else dontates their time to operate The Little Devils.

Since its founding in 1957, The Little Devils has been run by the parents and families of the children the program supports. Some local families have been involved with the organization for generations. And while the Little Devils and some of the families have been here for a long time, we always welcome new players and parents. We are a family organization, for the whole family.

All of our coaching staff, Athletic directors, Coaches, and assistant coaches are background checked for safety. All coaching staff are also required to attend a free concussion safety training course provided by the CDC, HeadsUp to Youth Sports.

With registration fee, the organization provides a helmet, shoulder pads, two jerseys (home and away), pants, and a mouthguard. The player must provide their own cleats and socks. It is also advised to purchase a warm base layer for your player for the colder part of the season.

The football season consists of 8-9 regular season games with other teams in the Tricounty Football Organization, barring any post season playoff games. The playoff games can be 1-3 games depending on win or loss.

With each team having one head coach and numerous assistant coaches, each child will have plenty of hands on instruction and direction. Practices are held at the Little Devils field and practice fields, while games are hosted at home and other Tricounty Football clubs.
