With the regular season in the books, it’s time for playoff football in The Chicagoland Youth Football League.

In the Sunday Heavyweight Division program, 24 of the 32 teams made the playoffs and were divided into three eight-team groups (AAA, AA, and A) based on number of players on the team, and not because of ability.

Thus, in three weeks, three championship teams will emerge.

The three-tier format is used for all the Sunday divisions in TCYFL program.
