1st Practice on July 11th - 6:00pm-8:00pm

Team practices are typically Tuesdays & Thursdays from 6:00pm - 8:00pm, Saturdays from 10:00am - 12:00pm and Sundays from 1:00pm - 3:00pm.  Once games begin in late August, teams will typically only practice on Tuesdays and Thursdays.   Practice schedules will be posted and updated on the SportsPlus App.  Practice schedules may be adjusted at the discretion of your team’s head coach or in anticipation of an extreme weather event.  Please download the SportsPlus App, as explained in the Communications section below, after completing registration to stay up to date on all announcements or schedule changes.  The SportsPlus App will use the same log-in & password you used to register your athlete.

Practice is located at the Belleville Little Devils field, in Citizens Park.

Extreme weather events that may cause a practice to be rescheduled or cancelled are:

1)      Lightning within a 10-mile radius of the practice/game field.

2)      Heat index above 105° Fahrenheit.

 In the event of a weather cancelation an announcement will be posted through the SportsPlus App and posted on the Little Devils Facebook Page.

Parents are encouraged to stay at the park to watch practice.  The concession stand will be open for all practices.  PARENTS ARE NOT ALLOWED ON THE PRACTICE FIELD.  

If you want to be on the field, a volunteer coach application is required.   A parent can be an Assistant Coach for a team that their child plays on, but are not allowed to be the Head Coach of that team.  All volunteer coaches go through an application process overseen by Tracy Seibert, Director of Football Operations, and must be approved by the Little Devils Board of Directors.

Athletes are encouraged to bring their own water/sports drink, but there will be team water bottles (shared) as well as water and Gatorade bottles for sale at the concession stand.



Mississippi Valley Youth Football League will issue each team a game schedule that begins the weekend of August 26th and lasts 8 weeks for the regular season and a 3 week playoff tournament.  Each team will play one game per week on either a Saturday or Sunday, except for 12U & 14U who may play some games during the week.

PARENTS / SPECTATORS ARE NOT ALLOWED ON THE FIELD, unless serving in an official capacity such as an assistant coach or volunteers running the “chain gang”.  Having an unauthorized person on the playing field or sidelines will result in a fine from the Mississippi Valley Youth Football League (MVYFL) to the Belleville Little Devils.  Please see the Parent’s Code of Conduct for additional information.

Players must weigh in prior to each game. Weigh in starts promptly 1 hour prior to game time.

Any player that is not present at the time of the weigh in request WILL NOT BE ELIGIBLE TO PLAY UNTIL HALF TIME PER LEAGUE RULES. There are no exceptions to the rule.

          Players must have their jersey and helmet at weigh in time.
