Feeder Program: BGC Sports will feature a feeder program for Bradford, Tremper and Indian Trail High Schools for participants in 1st - 5th grade. Additionally, all BGC sports football teams will play in a travel league called SEYFA (South East Youth Football Alliance) to improve competition and get our community competing against teams in close proximity to Kenosha.

The 6th - 8th grade participants will be separated by grade and placed in divisions for the child's grade for the 2018-2019 school year. The 6th - 8th grade divisions will also play in the travel league SEYFA but will not follow the feeder program format in 2018. All teams will be divided up via the draft as in previous years. Players may return to play with their coach from last year or they may request specific teams or coaches (*requests not guaranteed to be fulfilled). The 6th - 8th grade division will progressively transition into the Feeder Program grade-by-grade each year.

Divisions: All teams will have about 18-20 kids. All divisions have 100% participation meaning all kids will have a starting position on either offense or defense for the whole game. Red stripes are not allowed to carry the ball.
