JJYF COACHING CLINICS AND BOARD MEETING OPEN TO ALL MEMBERS!!
JJYF Coaching Clinic Series
Hello JJYF Members
Although you may be thinking about spring sports, we are thinking about Football! We are all looking forward to the start of the 2017 football season and please know that the entire John Jay Youth Football Association is dedicated to making your child’s football experience fun, safe, and educational.
As such, we have developed the JJYF Coaching Clinic Series to ensure all JJYF team’s leverage similar terminology and teaching concepts. Our first session was held on 2/15/17 with Coach John Murphy. Coach Murphy, has been very successful at the college and high school football level(s) and he spent the session talking football philosophy and strategy.
All in attendance found the session so informative that we have decided to open the clinics to all JJYF parents, specifically those that may have interest in coaching or would like to just learn more about football.
The clinics are held at The Cyrus Russell Community House in Cross River. The schedule is as follows:
Wednesday, 3/1/17, 7PM-9PM Coach John Murphy
Wednesday, 3/15/17, 7PM-9PMCoach from JJHS Varsity Football Staff
Wednesday, 3/29/17, 7PM-9PMCoach from JJHS Varsity Football Staff
We ask that you please email us at
to let us know in advance if you plan to attend so that we can configure the room accordingly.
Lastly, we ask that you spread the word about JJFY. We will again be looking to offer contact football teams for players ages 8 to 13 (3rd to 8th grade); however, we need your helpwith player recruitment. Please to talk to your friends and neighbors about JJYF and our commitment to teaching youth athletes the sport of football while attempting to instill the character, commitment, respect and camaraderie it takes to be a successful team member and person.
Our enrollment period opens in April, as such you will see our ‘WE WANT YOU’ ads and our JJYF road signs about registrations coming soon!
