2019 JYFA Update 
We are pleased to announce that Green has joined our league, the NSYFL (Northern Stark Youth Football League).  Green will be another partner in the multi-community league that is aligned with our fundamental purpose to create a meaningful and enjoyable experience for our children.   With four teams we will now be able to provide more diverse competition and still be able to control the competitive balance in the league.  The following will be the league’s format for 2019.

2019 Tackle B League (4th and 5th graders)
The Tackle B league format will remain the same this year.  We will likely have 4-5 teams with 17-22 players per team.  With Lake, North Canton and Green we are planning on having a total of 12-14 teams with 2 divisions.  The season will consist of the following:
Regular Season: 6 weeks, with each team playing one game per week.
Playoffs: 2 weeks of playoffs, culminating with a league Championship


2019 Tackle A League (6th and 7th graders)
The Tackle A format will continue with the JV/Varsity format.  We are going to make some changes to the rules to help provide a more positive experience for both the families and the players.  We are also going implement some new rules to ensure a competitive balance and that kids are playing a safe amount of football. 
Under this format, our Tackle A league will likely have 2 teams with 30-35 players per team.  With Lake, North Canton and Green we are planning on having a total of 8 teams.  The season will consist of the following:
Regular Season: 6 weeks, with each team playing a JV and Varsity game.
Playoffs: 2 weeks of playoffs, culminating with a league Championship (JV and Varsity)

Flag A (2nd and 3rd Graders) / Flag B (K and 1st Graders)
Both Flag A and B will remain in-house.  Flab B will be the same as last year, an instructional fun league.  We will again keep score and standings in Flag A.  This change received positive feedback last year and was a success.  We will have an evaluation period, and coaches will draft their teams.  We are really excited to have the High School Varsity Players officiate the games again this year. The season will consist of the following;
Regular Season: 5 weeks
Playoffs:  2 weeks of playoffs, culminating with a league Championship

JYFA and Cheer have separated to provide more individual focus on each sport.  JYFA will continue to support and coordinate with cheer to provide a great experience for the youth cheerleaders.  For more information on youth cheer, go to their Facebook Page, Jackson Youth Cheerleading.

JYFA continues to make safety our top priority.  We have purchased 140 brand new helmets over the last 3 years.  We get every helmet that is over 1 year old reconditioned and certified every year.  We have also purchased new shoulder pads and pants.  JYFA will continue to use the funds raised each year to invest in the safest equipment available.
