WELCOME TO THE WEST JERSEY YOUTH FOOTBALL LEAGUE
We wanted to reach out to inform everyone that the executive board is planning and preparing for the 2020 WJYFL season. There are still many issues and details that will need to be addressed before we officially kick off the season, but we are optimistic. We wanted to communicate and reinforce the following:
The safety of our players, parents, coaches, referees, and fans is our #1 priority. WJYFL will follow the guidelines established by the State and Counties. Everyone needs to be prepared to follow the guidelines when they are established.
Member organizations may have additional regulations or requirements for returning to youth sports. Please consult your organizational representatives to verify compliance with local policies.
PARENTS & PLAYERS
Thanks for visiting our site!
The goal of the WJYFL is to promote the game of football in an encouraging, safe, and fun environment.
The WJYFL kicks off each season in September and continues through the playoffs into late November. Generally, most teams begin practice and camps in early August to prepare for the season. Practice time is set by the teams head coach and will vary by team. Most teams will practice 3 or more days for 1.5 to 2.0 hours. Our league's games will be held on Saturdays and Sundays.
The regular season consists of 8 games. In most cases, teams will have 4 home games and 4 away games. There are two Divisions (North & South) with the top 4 teams in each division qualifying for the playoffs. Most teams in the WJYFL are just a short drive away taking only a few minutes. Occasionally, the farthest may be about an hour away.
