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.

News Items:

  • Preliminary 2020 Key Dates
    • POSTPONED | League Meeting @ Visitation
      The Board has decided to post-pone the league meeting scheduled for Thursday, May 21st. We will reschedule when gatherings of 10 or more are allowed and when we have more clarity on if and how COVID-19 will impact the 2020 season. We all have a lot of questions but very few answers right now. Decisions about the season are likely to be made by our respective Diocesan leaders, pastors, and principals. We are hopeful that the season will not be disrupted and encourage all member schools to continue to prepare for the season by securing players and coaches. However, all league members should follow the IHSA decision not to allow any in-person summer practices or camps until updated rules are issued.
      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.
