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:

Heads Up: Concussion in Youth Sports

image_name2

A concussion is a brain injury caused by a bump or blow to the head that can change the way your brain normally works. Even what seems to be a mild bump or blow to the head can be serious.

To help ensure the health and safety of young athletes, CDC developed the “Heads Up: Concussion in Youth Sports” initiative to offer information about concussions—a type of traumatic brain injury—to coaches, parents, and athletes involved in youth sports. The “Heads Up” initiative provides important information on preventing, recognizing, and responding to a concussion.
