Frequently Asked Questions

Who is eligible to play for Naperville Catholic?

The program is open to children who will be in 5th to 8th grade during the 2018/2019 school year. Students from All Saints Catholic Academy and St. Raphael School are eligible; in addition, children from local Catholic parishes who are registered in religious education are also eligible.  

Current parish partners are St. Raphael, Elizabeth Seton, Holy Spirit Catholic Community, St. Thomas the Apostle, and Margaret Mary.

How are the teams organized?

The program features 2 teams – a Junior Varsity squad (5th and 6th Grades) and a Varsity team (7th and 8th Grades).

Will there be a tryout in order to make the team?

There are no tryouts and no cuts. There are also no “minimum play rules”. This means that playing time may not be divided equally during league games. We make every effort to get all of our players significant time in games and competitive scrimmages as this is an important developmental opportunity. Roster size permitting we will schedule a number of “B” games at both the JV and Varsity levels to ensure all our players into game situations.  

Who does Naperville Catholic compete against?

The teams compete in the Suburban Parochial Football League.  The regular season league schedule includes 7 or 8 games and there are additional playoff games for teams that qualify. 

Home games will be played in the Naperville area. Road games will be played at a variety of locations across the western suburbs. Most games are played on Sunday but some game are scheduled for Saturday nights.
