The Bergen County Junior Football League is formed for the purpose of providing junior football in a hospitable environment. It is recognized that adolescent and pre-adolescent sports all too often assume an overly competitive atmosphere as a result of overzealous adult influence. This atmosphere, while sometimes resulting in excellent play, is considered more often detrimental to the vast majority of youth in this age group. The rules, therefore, shall be designed to maintain such excellence while preventing the over-coached competitive environment of the youth in the league’s respective communities.
As youth football leagues get ready to kick off another season of America’s favorite sport, many lawmakers are lining up behind the players and their parents to help make the game safer.
