Hopewell Valley Youth Football & Cheer Association

HVYF&CA Fall Football Program

HVYF&CA is open to residents of Hopewell, Titusville, Pennington, Ewing, Montgomery, Flemington, Princeton, and more.  We encourage participants of all ages and skill levels to come out and join us! 

The season kicks off at our annual HVYF&CA picnic which will be held in June 2019 following the conclusion of our Spring Flag season.  This is a great time for the players to meet their coaches and get acquainted or reacquainted with their teammates.  

Equipment (helmet, shoulder pads, practice jersey, practice pants, game jersey, game pants, belt, and necessary pads) is handed out prior to the start of practice.  An email will be sent advising participants of the date and time for their level.  Participants will need their own cleats, athletic supporter, and mouth guard.  

Practice will be held from 6pm to 8pm at the HVYF&CA Field as follows:

 08/12 to 08/22 Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday (4 nights)
 08/27 to 09/05 Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday (3 nights)
 09/10 to end of regular season Tuesdays and Thursdays (2 nights)



Certification will be held September 8th with a make-up date as September 14th (time and location tbd).  All football players must be certified in order to participate in games.  Once players have been certified, they will be issued an identification card with their information.  This information will be checked by the opposing team at the beginning of each game, but players will no longer need to be weighed prior to every game.  

West Jersey Youth Football follows the same rules and schedule as the high school. The schedule is determined by West Jersey Youth Football and is subject to change; once established, it will be publicized on the website.  Championship games are typically played on Thanksgiving weekend.  Again the schedule is established by WJYF and is subject to change. 

HVYF&CA issued equipment is to be returned at the end of the season.  Participants will receive an email advising the date and time for their level.
