In addition, the organization, in cooperation with the Defend Your Head Organization, is pleased to announce an exclusive informative briefing on player safety and head injury prevention on the evening of November 19th during LQ practice. Please plan to attend this worthwhile meeting (plus food & refreshments will be served!).

As the Philadelphia Little Quakers continue their football tradition for the 67th year, it’s our honor to announce the 2019 Philadelphia Little Quaker team roster. We always see some of the best area football players at try-outs and this year was no different. Thank you to all 110 participants for showcasing your talent and effort. Thank you to the families for your commitment and support of our program. For those football players that did not make this year’s team AND do not turn 15 years of age by September 1, 2020, please consider trying out again next year. For those players that will be too old, we wish you great success in your journey on and off the field. Congratulations to the following 2019 Philadelphia Little Quakers and remember “Once a Little Quaker, Always a Little Quaker”.
