What We Do

We have the opportunity to create an experience for athletes to develop, compete and discover their passion for the great sport of football and cheerleading.


Each participant has the opportunity to grow their skills and achieve their best possible performance. With experienced coaching, we provide the encouragement to help our players find a healthy approach to meet and beat their goals.


Our core values define our interactions on and off the field. We promote self-respect, discipline, sportsmanship, and fair play.


Beyond teamwork on the field, we are committed to creating a culture that starts lifelong friendships. Through outreach and events, we’re proud to be an active part of our local community, too.

We are excited to open up Fall Registration for:

Spirit Cheer

Flag Football

Falcons Travel Tackle Football

*Fall Competitive Cheer evaluations will take place in May. Stay tuned!

Registration for the Fall 2022 season is opening Super Bowl weekend. Like the NFL, College and High School levels, we do not play a Spring season due to player-safety concerns.

Come join and compete against the best student-athletes in the Chicagoland area in BGYFL this Fall where you’ll see kids play that will soon be starting at perennial football powerhouses such as Marist, Naperville Central, Brother Rice, Montini, and Glenbard West. Many of these kids go onto play for State 🏈 Championships under the IHSA like our 2021 Maine South Hawks Football, not just play in showcases, pay-to-play camps or during Florida vacations for kids who mature earlier than others.

Evaluations for either our D1 Gold (Elite) or D2 Silver (Competitive) Falcons travel levels from 8U to 13U (no high schoolers allowed) begin Aug 1st and end Aug 4th, and will be led by Rob Leach and Bret Brania. On Aug 5th, coaches will let each player know which team they were selected for based on their position, experience and tryout. Flag football is now our only House football program, for several years now, so no player evaluations are needed to play on one of those ~75 teams.

Remember that we will continue to provide chances for each player to earn their positions and get game-time repetitions based on their merit, we will teach them how to trust each other, we will continue to develop each player based on their skills now and work towards their future potential, including ensuring minimum play and sportsmanship standards, and of course leverage our MSFB base playbooks, schemes, and experiences as well as USA Football guidelines and drills to prepare your child to flow seamlessly into their own high school football program.

We hope you chose to be part of our 55 year old traditions and proven success!

It is with great excitement and energy that Park Ridge Sports, Inc. announces that our Park Ridge Falcon Travel Tackle Program will be joining the Bill George League (BGYFL) beginning in the Fall of 2021.

• Well established 58 year old youth travel tackle football league
• Comprised of 22 highly competitive youth travel tackle football programs predominately from the Northwest and Western suburbs
• There are two competitive Divisions offered
• Each Division has 6 levels of play – 8U, 9U, 10U, 11U, JV, and Varsity
• No high school players allowed or trips to Florida
• Each level of play has weight restrictions (striper weights) to promote safety and allow players to play with their classmates
• BGYFL is a no cut league – meaning everyone has a place to play
• There will be regional playoffs and Super Bowls at every level

We are looking forward to opening registration on April 30th for ALL our Fall programs as your 54 yr old Park Ridge Park District affiliate for Flag, Cheer and Tackle Football.

Shout out to longtime PRFB Coach and Champion-level Sponsor Matt Steiger! Great on the field with our kids and off the field with residential and commercial real estate brokering since 2006! While we realize he is a proud Park Ridge Football/Falcon alumnus, it is his dedication to coaching multiple teams EACH FALL - with all 3 of his own kids currently in the program - that we find simply amazing! Thank you Matt for helping all of these families in your spare time, and we hope you consider him with your real estate needs when it’s appropriate! www.atproperties.com/agents/7340/matt-steiger ...
