The Tinley Park Athletic Club (TPAC) was founded in 1961 as a non profit organization dedicated to our community's youth. The Tinley Park Bulldogs provides Football, Boys Lacrosse, Girls Lacrosse, Wrestling, and Cheerleading opportunities for ages 5 through 14.
"Once a Bulldog, Always a Bulldog"
Several complaints and media reports have come to our attention regarding a candidate for local office using the candidate's affiliation with the Tinley Park Bulldogs youth athletic organization, formally known as the Tinley Park Athletic Commission (TPAC), in campaign materials. It has been implied, if not outright stated, that TPAC endorsed these materials, had knowledge of the content before it was released and/or authorized the distribution of the campaign materials in question. Any such implication is false and has no basis in fact. The candidate in question acted alone and TPAC had nothing to do with these materials
On behalf of TPAC, we would like to state unequivocally that TPAC/TINLEY PARK BULLDOGS DOES NOT/HAS NOT/WILL NOT ENDORSE OR SUPPORT ANY CANDIDATES FOR ELECTED OR APPOINTED OFFICE AT THE LOCAL, COUNTY, STATE OR FEDERAL LEVEL, OR OTHERWISE ENGAGE IN PROHIBITED POLITICAL ACTIVITY.
TPAC is a not-for-profit corporation, run 100% by volunteers, that has been serving the community of Tinley Park and beyond for over 60 years. TPAC takes its role in the community very seriously. Many TPAC Board members were raised in the Bulldogs organization. We were cheerleaders, wrestlers, and football and lacrosse players. We attribute our success in life in large part to our formative years as Bulldogs. TPAC provides a sacred space where champions are raised on and off the field, gym and wrestling mat.
TPAC will not tolerate any activity that jeopardizes the vital role it plays in the community.

The Bulldog Athlete Development Model (BADM) is a concerted effort between the Tinley Park Athletic Club and its National Governing Bodies to apply long-term athlete development principles in a way that resonates a path toward an active & healthy lifestyle.
The Bulldog Athlete Development Model (BADM) utilizes long-term athlete development concepts to promote sustained physical activity & participation in sport to create positive experiences at every level,. This helps create opportunities for student athletes to maximize their full potential and promotes leadership development.
Multi-sport participation is critical to developing a well-rounded foundation for physical activity that transfers between sports. Encouraging children to participate in multiple sport activities at an early age offers them the opportunity to benefit socially, physically, and psychologically.
Our Bulldogs benefit from cross-training benefits such as strength, endurance, agility, coordination, and speed training, which enhances overall athleticism & promotes a healthy lifestyle.
