Park Ridge Football and Cheer

2020 Football and Cheer Registration


Welcome to the Park Ridge Football & Cheerleading 2020 Season!

We are a local sports family that is facing adversity unlike we’ve seen in our 53 year history.  

While Covid-19 has impacted all of us differently and has slowed us down, we are excited to announce that we are planning on conducting all of our programs (Flag & Falcons Travel Football, Spirit & Competitive Cheer) this Fall, as Illinois is currently on schedule to move to Phase 4 at the end of June.

We remain committed to our goal of offering a safe and fun experience while fielding competitive teams and teaching life lessons that will benefit our young athletes for years to come. 

As always, the safety of our athletes is our number one concern.  We are currently working on rules to manage social distancing, prevent the spread of illness, limit crowds, possibly modify the season start time, and reduce the number of participants in practices and competitions.  We are closely watching the guidelines from the CDC, the State of Illinois, and the Park Ridge Park District to make sure we get this right. As we get closer to the season, we will let you know the exact plan. 

We are looking forward to seeing you all soon!  As always, please contact us with any questions you might have. Make sure to check our website regularly for updates and like our Facebook page at Park Ridge Football.
