Frequently Asked Questions

Does my child have to be registered for me to fill out evaluations?

Yes, your child must be registered the league to fill out an evaluation form. Use the registration links above to find the player evaluation form. This form will allow us to equally distribute our players onto teams.

How will evaluations be rated?

Evaluations will consist of a variety of questions involving height, experience in basketball and travel basketball. All questions will have a rating scale for you to answer. Once you fill out all the questions, we will have you give us an overall score for your participant. This will give us our rating for your participant. We base it on a scale from 1-3. 1 being very good and in the top 15% of the kids in the league, 2 being somewhere in the middle and average with the sport, and 3 being in the bottom 15% of the league.

Why do online evaluations?

Having such a popular and big program we use online evaluations to help us organize our participants into groups based on skill level. Without evaluations we wouldn’t be able to make teams fair. Online evaluations give us the most effective way for us to create teams.

Volunteer Coaches Needed!

Volunteer coaches take on a key role for our Flag Football League. We need coaches at every grade level and having coaches from your child’s school is one of the best ways to help us keep as many children from the same school as we can. If you are interested in volunteering email

Our Coaches Meeting is August 20th at 6:30pm at The Community House

How Are Teams Formed?

While we encourage a competitive spirit in all players and coaches, all league decisions are made with the best interest of the majority of children involved.  We know we cannot place each child with their best friend, so we do not accept team placement requests.  We do make every attempt to place children on a team with at least some of their schoolmates. The Recreation Supervisor will be responsible for selecting all teams and all final team placement decisions.

Teams will be constructed using the following criteria:
– what school they attend
– grade level (to have equal numbers of each grade on all team)
– # of years in the league


Practices are a one time a week commitment, however coaches are allowed to schedule 2 practices a week until opening game. After opening day coaches are allowed one practice per week. Volunteer coaches are responsible for choosing the practice time and location.

Game Days

1st/2nd grade and 3rd/4th grade play together on Saturdays.
5th/6th and 7th/8th grade play together on Sundays.

Games begin in September. Saturday games begin at 9:00am and Sunday games begin at 10:00am. Last game times of the day vary depending on number of teams.
All teams play 7 games, and all games will be held at Robbins Park, directly east of The Community House.


All players will receive an NFL team jersey. New this season the Flag Football League will be providing participants with TCH shorts! Mouth guards are required, and rubber molded cleats are recommended. Flags will be supplied by the league for both games and practices. No metal spikes are allowed.

The Willowbrook Corner Community

Located in unincorporated DuPage County, near Willowbrook, the neighborhood of Willowbrook Corner came into being as part of public housing relocation programs in the 1970s and 80s.  Because the neighborhood is not served by a municipality it is geographically isolated, and many families here live below the federal poverty level.

The Willowbrook Corner Coalition is a collaboration of community agencies, and we are seeking to grow our Bank Coalition Partnerships. Our mission is to offer equal opportunity for socially and economically disadvantaged groups and to promote self-sufficiency.  Bank Coalition Partners are asked to provide financial education to parents and students, and to provide modest support to The Community House’s administration of the Coalition.
