Tackle Football


About the Program

The Westfield PAL sponsors competitive tackle football travel teams starting from the 3rd thru 8th grade.  Our teams participate in the North Jersey Suburban Youth Football League (NJSYFL).  Although most games will be played on Sundays at the times indicated below, the schedule is subject to change on short notice and may include games on Saturdays.  All registrants will be placed according to their grade in September 2024.

Team placement will be dependent upon the number of registrants per grade and the teams are typically constructed as follows –    

NJSYFL “A” Team: 8th Grade – Sundays at 1:30pm

NJSYFL “B” Team: 7th Grade – Sundays at noon

NJSYFL “C” Team: 6th Grade – Sundays at 10:30am

NJSYFL “D” Team: 5th Grade – Sundays at 9:00am

NJSYFL “E” Team: 3rd & 4th Grade – Sundays at 3:00pm

NOTE: Our registration system does not recognize grade as a way to delineate teams.  When registering, you will see more than one option available based on your child’s age.  Please select the appropriate team based on your child’s grade in September 2024.


Registration for the fall 2024 season will open on May 1, 2024 and will promptly close on June 30, 2024.

The season will commence with a mandatory training camp, to be held at Tamaques Park, 6:00 – 8:00pm Monday through Thursday, which will likely be during the week of August 12, 2024.


The Westfield PAL registration provides and covers a helmet and a game jersey for every player.  Players are responsible for all other equipment – shoulder pads, practice/game pants, practice jersey, jock strap/cup, mouth guard and youth football cleats.  Players should always bring their own water for all practices and games.


Safety for all players is our #1 priority.  The NJSYFL has partnered with USA Football (http://usafootball.com) and all coaches are required to be certified by completing both the USA Football Heads Up Tackling and the Rutgers S.A.F.E.T.Y. training courses.  Additionally, the Westfield PAL conducts background checks for all coaches in the program.

Physical Exam:  All players are required to complete a physical exam to indicate that they are fit to play tackle football for the 2024 season.  A player may register prior to completing the physical exam; however, the exam must be completed prior to the start of training camp in order for the player to participate.
