Welcome to the Northern Illinois Football Conference



History of the NIFC:

The NIFC was created in 2006 in efforts to bring a more positive experience to the youth in our communities.  While football is a competitive sport, we believe that life lessons can be taught and learned through playing the game of football. 

The NIFC currently has grown to a total of 16 great organizations that participate.  We believe it is important to manage growth so that all athletes are provided a positive experience.  We encourage organizations wishing to make a change to contact us as we are always looking for those who fit our philosophy. 

The NIFC continues to provide a fun, safe, and  competitive environment.  Our philosophy is simple...."It's about the kids!" 

“Show class, have pride, and display character. If you do, winning takes care of itself.”
--Paul "Bear" Bryant


The NIFC is Celebrating 10 Years of great football in 2017!!!


In 2006 some courageous, driven individuals with a common vision for better junior tackle football got together and started planning what is now the NIFC. In 2007 that vision became a reality.


Congratulations! and THANK YOU to all who have made the NIFC great!.
