Canaryville Lions Youth Football & Cheer


The Canaryville Lions are a founding member of the Chicagoland Youth Football League. We are a full contact team (boys & girls ages 8-15) and play throughout the Chicago area. This year we joined the Pop Warner league, a national non-profit organization that promotes youth football and cheer & dance programs for participants in several states and countries around the world. We hope this new partnership will help us build our teams and continue to provide a safe sporting environment for the youth in our community.
