About Glenbrook North Jr. Spartan Football

JR SPARTAN TACKLE FOOTBALL PROGRAM

The GBN Jr Spartan Tackle/Flag/Cheer Program was organized over 35 years ago. Our goal is to teach the fundamentals of football & cheerleading. We are also highly focused on creating a fun, safe environment for each player to develop. The Jr Spartan program is a community-based program which is considered the feeder program to Glenbrook North HS. This year we have joined a new league (TCYFL). The Chicagoland Youth Football League. With over 50 participating community programs, TCYFL is the largest independent youth football program in the country.
