The Bobcats have partnered with NFL Play 60 where the focus of our program continues to center around instilling positive sportsmanship, player and teammate development, and most importantly having FUN. The Bobcats offer leagues / divisions for grades K-8th. Our coaches are encouraged to give players the opportunity to rotate positions and share equal playing time.
The 2018 plans to offer team and individual events at the end of the season, including a “Punt, Pass, Kick” competition as well as a “Super Bowl” and an option “Pro Bowl” game for selected players.

Player safety is a top concern for parents and for the Bobcat organization.

If you previously purchased a helmet through the bobcats then you may continue to use that helmet.

Mandatory Participation: I understand and agree that in registering my child(ren) in the Tinley Park Bobcats programs, I will insure the sale/purchase of Association-approved and distributed fundraiser for the sole intent and purpose of raising funds for the Association. Waiver: I understand that I may elect to pay an additional $40.00 at the time of registration and, in doing so; my required participation in the candy sale is waived.
We will see where registration is at at end of July and if there is not enough interest due to conflict with other Fall Sports we will consider putting together a 6 week Fundamental program starting outdoors and ending indoors with focus on all aspects of the game at each level. We will update you closer to end of July. Monkey Survey to follow in the coming week to also check interest.
The Tinley Park Bobcat Challengers is a division for young athletes and their families who do not allow developmental disabilities prevent them from participating in the national pastime. The goal is simple…give everyone a chance to play baseball. This league is not about competition; rather, it is about something greater…sportsmanship, teamwork, and accomplishment.
“We have many different special children with diagnoses including Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Angelman Syndrome, Down’s Syndrome, Neurofibromatosis, and many, many more.” quotes Coach Granata. “Each player is an All-Star and will play in an end of the year All Star Game.”
