Join us for the Park Ridge Competitive Cheer Fundraiser at Pennyville Bar Car!

Mark the calendar and hopefully join us on Thursday, July 15 at 6:30 PM for a Park Ridge Competitive Cheer Fundraiser at Pennyville Bar Car, in Uptown Park Ridge!!
If you are interested in sponsoring the event for $100 (includes name/logo on banner, shout out at the event and on social media), please contact Kristin Zabratanski, kristinzab@gmail.com or register at the link below and add a sponsorship (plug any birthdate 🤣).

Our Park Ridge Competitive Cheer program has numerous expenses throughout the year. This Pennyville fundraiser will provide a way for cheerleaders and their families to ease the financial burden of participating in our PRC program. For example, due to the unprecedented year of 2020, our IRCA competition entry fees for 2021 will be more than two times what they have been in the past. Additionally, every two years, our brand new competition uniforms are always a tremendous added cost to parents.
All proceeds from this fundraiser will assist us in offering our PRC girls the opportunity to compete at more events and assist parents with uniform expenses.

Thank you for your support!!! (Please note: this is an adults-only event!)

Tickets are $75 per person and include an open bar until 8:30PM, appetizers, awesome raffle prizes, live music, and more!

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.

Rowan Keefe is the upcoming Senior QB at MSFB, and he was our starting QB in Falcons during his 8th grade year. With already ~700 registrations for this Fall 2021, remember YOU decide YOUR own positions in football. Not adults. And a little growth, weight room and athleticism always helps...As Cooper Manning recently remarked about his #1 5 star pro-style QB prospect son Arch (Class of 2023):“We raise them to do what they want to do. They make decisions and we support them. That’s the way it works.” We agree with Cooper Manning 💯www.parkridgefootballandcheer.com ... See MoreSee Less

🤔🤯🤣 Locally grown 🏈 players since 1967. While we know things change over time, we think hard work, participation, and competition rises to the top over time. #havefun #EnjoyYourWeekend #itstheirturnparentswww.parkridgefootballandcheer.comHolding tryouts for my 2-year-old Select Elite Showcase Scout team. Players must be well rounded, extremely athletic and already committed to DI schools. We prefer that the player is already potty-trained but open to development if player fits our mold. We will travel to 96 tournaments and play close to 2,000 games in 2018. Most our our 15 coaches played high school JV baseball but would’ve been DI college recruits or even drafted if they didn’t get hurt their senior year of JV Ball.We are looking for exit velo of at least 95-98mph, spin rate of 2,750-3,000 and launch angle of 75 degrees!!!Players are required to make a choice between KinderCare or playing full-time travel ball. We will practice 5 hours per day and CrossFit each morning at 5am.We will have 13 different uniforms and bat bags that are at least three times bigger than the players.For players under 2-years-old, we have our Elite Diaper Development Team.Please contact us at Colorado Baby Elite if interested.KristaOriginal post from Gino B.
