1. Cost --- the TOTAL cost
to enter is $100.00 per town with
additional fees if a town
enters more than four teams. In most cases towns are
already covered for liability and accident team insurance through the NJYSL.
2. We offer an 8-game season
plus playoffs for every team no matter where the team is in the standings.
3. The League is
administered by a democratically elected Trustees Committee which operates under
the supervision of a Board of Directors made up of a
of each town. The Board makes the rules and the Trustees run the League.
4. Half your games are
played "at home" at your school. You can enter the League with as little as
six three-hour sessions during the January-February-March
season. We can help arrange for your "home" gymnasium time.
5. We offer competition in
five age brackets from under-8 to under-16 for boys and girls. We ask a town to
enter with a minimum of three teams (U14, U12,
U10). If you would rather enter the all-girls competition we also ask you
to enter with a minimum of three teams (U14, U12, U10). 16-and-under
and girls and co-ed under-8 competition is optional.
6. Please explore our web
You will see how we handle the results, all the standings and
the schedule of games. This information is up-dated
every Wednesday during the season. The site had over 20,000 hits last season.
7. This will be our 26th
season and, we have been told, we have the best administered League around. Last
season over 20 towns participated in our League.
8. We run a safe and healthy
activity that has the support of parents and the children. We have not had a
claim against our accident policy to date (knock on wood).
9. The League gives the
children a chance to visit other towns and other venues. It's a League --- not
just a place to play.
10. The League is divided
into two skill levels (the Premier/Pascack Conference and the Valley Conference) to
avoid unbalanced competition and it is also divided
North and South to avoid distant travel.
11. Our rules require that
the players must reside in the town they represent in order to avoid recruitment
conflicts and high pressure competition. There
some exceptions if your town has a permanent combined recreational program with
another town or if several towns send children to the same high
12. All our referees are professionals and are
certified by both the USSF as well as the League.
We would welcome the
opportunity to visit with you and your coaches to answer the questions you
surely will have.
