Registration for Palatine Amateur Football Association (PAFA) offers tackle football for third through eighth graders and flag football for kids in kindergarten through sixth grade. The last day to register for tackle football is Tuesday, May 1. Players must also be fitted for their jersey at Sports Scene, 712 E. Northwest Highway, in Palatine and select their jersey number by this date. Flag football registration will remain open until Sunday, July 15.
PAFA’s approach to the game is safety first. Players are encouraged to achieve excellence on and off the field and that begins with character building and treating other players with respect.

PAFA strives to build strong football families through activities both on and off the field.
