About Pekin JFL


About Pekin JFL (Junior Football League)

Pekin JFL is a youth football organization. Our goal is to provide a safe, fun and educational environment for the young athletes of Pekin to grow as football players. We start with the basics and work up from there. No experience is required to participate in any of our divisions. From our in house Flag program to our travel and tournament 14U teams we encourage any young athlete to give football a try. At the heart of our organization is a love and passion for the game and the life lessons it can teach.

You would be hard pressed to find a former football player that wouldn’t say football changed their life. We have many program alumni from all walks of life that would probably credit football as a contributing factor of their success. From the Union Tradesmen to Suit and Tie professionals that have worn our uniform they all have one thing in common, at a young age they decided to play the game and it challenged them, taught them team work, how to deal with adversity, how to get knocked down and get back up and countless other valuable life lessons.

That is why we are here. To provide the youth with an opportunity to play the game we love, to give them a chance to earn the lessons we’ve learned, to help them grow and flourish as young men and women, and to help them forge unbreakable bonds with their teammates, many of whom will become lifelong friends.

We would love to have your child and your family join our family.
