Panther Jr Football & Cheer

Panthers is a competitive tackle football and recreational cheer organization to children who live in Downers Grove and surrounding areas. We also offer a flag football program. We are a travel league, with opponents in the western suburbs. We are members of the Bill George Youth Football League (BGYFL), and our home field is Doerhoefer Park in Downers Grove.

For over 50 years the Panthers have focused on developing the fundamentals of football and cheerleading, through teamwork and sportsmanship. There are no try-outs. Tackle football players are placed on a team based on age, weight, and ability. Cheerleaders are assigned to a cheer squad, based on age.

Panthers are focused on safety!
 - All coaches are USA Football Heads Up Tackling certified.
 - Highest safety-rated helmets
 - Professional trainer on the sidelines at all home games
