Tryouts will be taking place Saturday, Aug.23

It may be the middle of summer but the West Side Junior Football League is already thinking about this coming fall with signups starting next week.

Unlike previous years, the West Side Recreation and Park District will be handling the signups this year.

The cost to sign up for each player is $40 along with $40 of pancake breakfast tickets. The cost for a family is $50 along with $40 of pancake breakfast tickets.

So if a family of three were to sign up it would cost the family $170.

If the family were to get rid of their pancake tickets, they would end up just paying $50 to sign up.

Tryouts for the upcoming season will take place Saturday, Aug. 23 at the Taft High track. The tryouts will begin at 9 a.m.

The pancake breakfast will be held Saturday, Sept. 13 while the first game will take place Saturday, Sept. 20.
