New to Racine is a youth high school summer 7v7 Football League. The league is comprised of High School teams within Racine County, according to the City of Racine Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services (PRCS). This is a summer program that gives student-athletes the chance to work out and condition in the off-season.
Games started on June 13 and will continue on Monday nights through July 25 from 5:45 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Horlick Field, 1648 N. Memorial Drive, in Racine.

The first night of play went better than expected. The City of Racine reported that league play attendance was also higher than expected. Due to the rise in involvement, the City of Racine has implemented new safety measures for the 7v7 Football League.
These rules will be in effect for the remainder of the season. This will increase safety for teams, coaches, players and spectators.
