To all Parents/Coaches-
Wow! In what has become one of the most memorable of all years for a multitude of reasons we have been able to get through a remarkable season! Special Thanks to Board Members Rob Leach, Roy Hoffman, Katie Brania, Mel Thillens, Matt Colleran, Kristin Zabratanski , Garry Abezetian and John Capesius without whose endless hours we simply could not have functioned this season!
This year especially I would like to state our profound gratitude to all Board Members/Parents/Coaches and Young Student Athletes. You all did a remarkable job of adhering to an ever changing set of guidelines, working within the guidelines laid out by our governor and creating the most positive experience we knew how to under those circumstances. The good news is that I spoke with literally hundreds of parents and young student athletes personally throughout the season who were filled with gratitude in having an environment for outdoor recreation lacking in most nearby communities and throughout the state.
The easy choice in the late Spring and Summer would have been to simply cancel the season and save hundreds of volunteers from all the stress that comes from adhering to these rules in a scary environment. The difficult choice was that 9 Board Members and 150+ Volunteers stepped up to the plate in an amazing fashion!
As always we welcome any feedback because our Board spends the entire offseason preparing for the next season and also discussing ways to improve the experience for parents, players and coaches alike
Please remember that as we have closed the Season on Football (Falcons Travel Tackle and Flag Football) and Spirit Cheer; we are still in the midst of our Competitive Cheerleaders Competitions. Please support these remarkable young ladies as they continue forth in their season. Also look for information regarding our first ever Falcons Tackle Football Spring Season as we follow the ever changing guidelines from the state.
Thank you all and see you next season!
Park Ridge Sports Inc.
Welcome to the 2020 football season. This Fall will mark our 53rd season offering football & cheerleading to our community. We are excited to announce that we are planning on conducting all of our programs (Flag Football, Falcons Travel Football, Spirit Cheer, 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 continue to update our plan below.
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.
