PAFA Sponsorship Information

Academic All American

By Tanya Tyska 01/01/2017, 3:00pm CST

PAFA recognizes all PAFA tackle football players (3rd-8th grade) who earn straight As on their report card during the first quarter or trimester with an Academic All American award.  This award is designed to encourage our student athletes to achieve excellence on and off the field, recognizing that being a good athlete requires focus and discipline in all areas of their life, and that while performance on the field is important, school is most important.

To receive the PAFA All American Award, students will need to submit a copy of their first quarter report card showing all As (A- counts!) to their Division Administrator—see submission deadlines below.  Academic All Americans will receive a certificate and other recognition from the league at the end of the season, including recognition on the PAFA website. 

You can text or email a copy of the report card to your DA, or provide a printed photocopy.  Please reach out to your team mom if you need contact information for your DA. 

Party in the Park 2018

A Community-Oriented, Safety-Focused Football Program

The Palatine Amateur Football Association (PAFA) is focused on building a strong football community-- providing local youth an opportunity to learn the fundamentals of football in a safe, positive environment, while building confidence, discipline, and character.

We provide tackle football for grades 3rd - 8th and flag football for K-6th grades. We welcome all players and families who are interested in joining a community-oriented football program where safety and character comes first. Please see our about us page to learn more about the PAFA program, and what to expect when you join our football community.

Congratulations to our PAFA Academic All Americans

Congratulations to our 2018 PAFA Academic All Americans (click here). These athletes achieved straight As during the football season, striving for excellence on and off the field.  Please join us in congratulating these athletes, and in encouraging our PAFA players to pursue excellence in their academic and athletic pursuits.
