The Hillsborough JR Raiders is an independent recreational youth organization serving the community of Hillsborough, NJ, since 1992. The JR. Raiders offers organized youth activities in flag and tackle football, cheerleading, track & field, girls lacrosse and field hockey for youth in grades Kindergarten through 8th.   We are committed to teaching the children the skills they need to have fun playing in a safe environment. Our players learn and apply the principals of sportsmanship, teamwork, discipline and dedication. The JR Raiders offers opportunities for boys and girls of all skill levels. Our philosophy is that all children need to get into the game to learn and have fun.  We emphasize the fundamentals and progression of skill development, which will prepare them to participate at higher levels of competition as they progress through the different levels within their sport of choice. The Hillsborough JR. Raiders provides Hillsborough High School with student athletes that are prepared for the next level of competition and education.  Numerous HJR alumni continue their sports career at the college level.


The Hillsborough JR Raiders is sustained by the efforts of its volunteers. We are governed by a Board of Trustees.  The organization’s day to day operations are managed by the Steering Committee which is comprised of a group of program directors. It is dedication and hard work of our many volunteers that makes the JR Raiders the exceptional organization that it is today. We are always looking for new volunteers to help with coaching, directing, being a team parent, trainer or just lending a hand.
