Welcome to the Suburban Parochial Football League

Since 1993 the SPFL has provided thousands of students in grades 5-8 the opportunity to play organized football in a safe, fun and competitive environment. Consisting of ten Catholic schools, together with other affiliated schools and religious education programs, the SPFL continues to provide a value-based youth football experience for families in the western suburbs of Chicago.

    • Tuesday, June 16th 7pm | League Meeting
      We have been waiting on a release of the IHSA Return to Play guidelines, but it continues to be post-poned. Hopefully, it will happen soon, and these guidelines can inform Diocesan leaders and our respective schools on how to proceed with the fall football season. In anticipation of this happening and the fast approaching season starting on August 10, the board would like to reschedule the May league meeting for Tuesday, June 16th at 7pm. To allow for appropriate social distancing check your email for the location. If you are uncomfortable attending in person, please let us know and we will attempt to have a telephonic or video option available as best we can outside. Please come prepared to discuss the outlook for your programs player numbers at both the varsity and JV level given the uncertainty from COVID-19 and the resulting financial impact on many families. We will circulate an agenda and previous meeting minutes a few days ahead of the meeting. If you have any topics for the agenda, please let the board know.
      The board hopes all members, coaches, players, and families are safe and healthy. We will be in touch as we learn more. Please do not hesitate to contact any of the board members if you have questions or concerns.
