Hillsborough Jr Raiders is proud to participate in the NJAYF conference. NJAYF is the largest football conference in New Jersey with over 40 programs throughout the state. Our tackle football program is segmented into unlimited weight divisions based on age: 8u, 9u, 10u, 11u, 12u & 14u using an age cutoff of 7/31. There are no tryouts & everyone plays. Teams are kept small allowing for greater child participation and a higher level of learning.
We provide the most on-the-field play-time opportunities in the Hillsborough area. We have no restrictions nor do we discriminate when it comes to play-time or eligibility. Whether it's your first year with us or you've been part of Jr Raiders for years, everyone is treated equally and fairly and earns their play-time through hard work, dedication and a desire to learn.
Practice begins early August and games begin in late August. Teams who are successful could be invited to participate in post season play up to including an opprotunity to play for the AYF National Championship in Florida.
