Things to know about the BANA Youth Football Family!

BANA Youth Football is dedicated to the development of the sport of football. We are devoted to the principles of maximum effort and fair play and to impart knowledge, respect and a life-long love for the game. We strive to teach, develop and enhance the fundamentals of the sport so players can reach their full potential in the game. We offer opportunities to participate and advance in the sport for competitive tackle youth football players and recreational flag football players. BANA serves the families of Batavia, Aurora, and North Aurora (BANA). Even more importantly we put the players experience above everything else! 

The Programs that we offer are exclusive to competitive travel football. 
Travel football is a program for those players who want a more rigorous practice and game schedule than in house or flag football.
  • BANA is a part of the TCYFL (The Chicago Youth Football League) which is the largest youth football league in Illinois and the largest independent youth football league in the United States.
  • BANA KNIGHTS are 1 of over 50 suburban travel teams in the Chicagoland area that participate in the TCYFL.
  • The youth football competition in the TCYFL is by far the most competitive, and most professional in Illinois!
  • Marmion Academy serves as BANA’s home field.

Why Be a Knight?: 
  • Here at BANA we promote competition, and fundamentals above everything else. We pride ourselves in teaching our players how to play the game in a tough and safe manner. 
  • When our players get to the next level of competition they are more prepared, and adapt to the High School game better than those who play flag or the 7th/8th grade tackle. 
  • BANA prides itself in making not only quality football players, but quality athletes as a whole.
  • We believe that to continue our success we must instill the winning spirit, while also not deterring from the fact that we believe the most important aspect of youth sport is for the kids to have fun!
  • BANA has been creating friendships, and bringing communities together for 10 seasons now and we expect to continue doing this for many years to come!
