News and Announcements
The Philadelphia Little Quaker community is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Mr. Robert Fox (see link below) on April 14th. A longtime Philadelphian and football enthusiast, Mr. Fox was instrumental in establishing the James Fox Memorial Scholarship in 1971 in memory of his son, James. James Fox was a member of the 1967 Philadelphia Little Quaker Team. The Fox Scholarship is a 4 year full-need scholarship awarded each year to a member of the Little Quakers team to attend the William Penn Charter School. To date, 43 former Little Quaker Fox Scholars have graduated from Penn Charter through the generosity of Bob & Penny Fox. Please join the Philadelphia Little Quaker community in mourning the passing of a LQ icon.
After careful consideration, the Philadelphia Little Quakers organization has decided to postpone their 2020 Fall Football Season due to potential health concerns of Covid-19. For the first time in its 68 year history, the LQs will not hold try-outs and play games in 2020. Although extremely disappointing to the players, coaches, staff and LQ community, our plan is to hold a number of clinics in the Spring, 2021 to prepare for the LQ 2021 Season next September. If you are interested in participating in the upcoming LQ clinics, please look for a 2020 registration link on our website coming soon. * Thank you for your understanding and please stay safe & healthy.
“Remember once a Little Quaker, always a Little Quaker”.
First & foremost, the Philadelphia Little Quakers hope that you & your families are safe & healthy! The LQs are reviewing the current public health recommendations to determine how to best approach this upcoming season. We hope to have a clearer picture by September 7, 2020 and will re-post our direction at that time.
