Practice will begin the first week of August. Each player must provide all required forms to the coach prior to participating in practice. To see a list of the required forms go to Requirements, Equipment, and Fees. Each player must complete 10 hours of conditioning prior to engaging in contact drills. JDYFL requires this for the health and safety of your child as well as the other children playing. JDYFL recognizes that playing football is a big commitment and demands a lot from families; however, each player must be instructed in the proper technique for block and tackling prior to any live contact drills. Regardless of prior experience, each player must participate in this instruction. JDYFL expects 100 % participation for all practices and mandatory events. Players that do not attend practices will forfeit the right to play in games.
