Dear Parents & Athletes of John Jay Youth Football,
John Jay Youth Football was originally established in 1975 and has since been a staple in our youth athletic community. We pride ourselves in the commitment of teaching our youth athletes the sport of football, and to instill the character, commitment, respect and the camaraderie it takes to be a successful team and person.
Last season we set forth in a new direction and entered into the highly competitive Taconic Youth Football League. Our teams worked hard and the results showed with two of John Jay's teams making it to the league semi finals, and three teams playing in the Orange Bowl championship game. The fourth grade team won a spectacular game to become the Orange Bowl champs!
This season we look forward to picking up where we left off by continuing to build our program through core values and the support of our community. Our goal is to teach kids the fundamentals of football and the importance of team work. The success of our program is a direct result of the hard work from our dedicated coaches, players and parents.
The season will officially start in early August but we hope to have a few skill clinics and fun mini camps beforehand. As always, none of this would be possible without great volunteers and support. We at John Jay Youth Football would like to thank everyone that made last season so much fun, and we can't wait to get back on the field.
I look forward to seeing everyone soon and please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
