Junior Bear Football

Junior Bear is a tackle football program with two divisions; the 8-10-year-old pee wee division and the 11-13-year-old varsity division.  In a season which runs from August to October, players will enjoy opening ceremonies, clinics, and league play, along with the championship game and closing ceremonies,   Uniforms, transportation, and giveaways are provided.  Games are played at several locations throughout the city, usually on Saturdays, with some Tuesday night games.  The championship Mum Bowl is held at historic Soldier Field at the end of the season.  This program is coordinated and administered by the Chicago Park District’s Athletics department, and partially funded by a grant from the Chicago Bears.
