The Chicago Blitz Youth Football and Cheerleading Organization, Inc. was established in 2003 and is organized exclusively for charitable and educational purposes under the section 501c(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954 and to that extent will primarily develop and maintain programs and activities that:

  • Educate Organization members about football and cheerleading

  • Foster national or international amateur sports competitions by providing organized football and cheerleading games and activities for boys and girls under the age 14 years of age.

  • Encourage the development and practice of good sportsmanship, both on and off the playing field.

  • Develop the principles of fair play and building good character.

The Chicago Blitz was formed by a committed group of parents, like you, who were adamant that their child has an excellent and structured football and cheer program. We are a 501c(3) not-for-profit organization, that is run by volunteers, no one receives payment for their services. We began under the Metro League and are now official members of the River Valley Youth Football League. Our Organization’s colors are Scarlet Red and Silver.

1) Super Lightweight (ages 6-7) 
2) Lightweight (ages 8-9) 
3) Junior Varsity (ages 10-11) 
4) Varsity (ages 12-13)

*Football players must be the appropriate age by September 1, 2020.
