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.
The WJYFL will provide a helmet (with chin strap), a single mouth guard, shoulder pads, game pants, game jersey, and all associated pads. All equipment handed out must be returned at the end of the year except for the mouth guard. Optional equipment not provided but recommended are hand warmers, arm pads and gloves (depending on positional assignment). Equipment provided may vary by each organization.
You must provide football cleats (sometimes socks), additional mouth guards, and an athletic cup for your player.
