The Springfield Parks & Recreation Department is proud to offer Jr. Pro football and cheerleading to youth ages 5 to 11 as of August 1, 2022 this fall.

Football league participants, led by volunteer coaches, will work to improve their skills in passing, receiving, and running the ball. Cheerleaders will focus on skills like coordination, balance, and endurance, while learning to work as a team.

Teams will begin practice in July. Regular season play will take place on Saturdays from September through November.

Registration is available in-person at The Center, 401 North Main Street through June 6, 2022. The fee is $75 per participant for Springfield residents and $85 per participant for non-residents. First time participants must provide a copy of the child’s birth certificate for age verification. Visit to download a registration form.
