For the 2018 season, NJAYF – Jersey Shore Conference, will change to an AGE BASED division versus the AGE/WEIGHT division. The removal of weight restrictions allows all children to play at a more appropriate maturity and physical development level. Participants have an opportunity to play on age appropriate teams providing for SAFER, competitive teams. Learn more about why this is safer for our children here.

This season we are implementing several additional safety precautions in order to provide our children with the best possible experience! We are PURCHASING TONS of new helmets & RECONDITIONING ALL of our helmets in order to provide our kids with the best equipment. We are also providing parents with the opportunity to not only Purchase at a discounted price but have their child FITTED for their own personal helmet by a Representative from Riddell to ensure every child is wearing the best size. In addition we will be holding a parents Clinic, to teach each and every parent on how to ensure their child is safe for practice and game days with a Riddell representative leading the way.
In addition to the safety protocols for all of our coaches that is mandated by NJAYF, we as a program will also mandate that all of our head coaches become USA Football Certified to ensure our kids are taught with the most up to date and accurate research in playing the game of football.
