Panthers is a competitive tackle football program open to children who live in Downers Grove and surrounding areas. We also offer a flag football program for children aged 5yrs-7yrs old. The Panthers program is a travel league, with opponents in the western suburbs. We are members of the Bill George Youth Football League (BGYFL). BGYFL serves as the governing body for all levels of tackle and flag football including rules, regulations, and league play. Our Home field is Doerhoefer Park in Downers Grove.
The Panthers program focuses on developing the fundamentals of football, through teamwork and sportsmanship. There are no try-outs. Tackle football players are placed on a team based on age, weight, and ability.
Tackle football players must be between 7-14 years old by August 1st of the current year.
To be eligible to play flag football, players must be 5-7 years old by August 1st of the current year. *For safety concerns any 7 year old that weighs over 70 lbs will not be eligible to play at the Flag level.
