.Teams Organized by Age & Weight - Safety & Opportunity

NJFL levels are organized by age and weight with six levels of play for ages 6-14. This the most widely used approach in junior football (see www.popwarner.com) and a very successful approach (used by the Greater Eastside www.gefja.net). Other leagues may not account for weight variations and may offer fewer levels of play. Our approach is structured to increase participation opportunities and safety for all players. Here are our six levels of play and the age weight information:
