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! 

Equipment (helmet, shoulder pads, practice jersey, practice pants, game jersey, game pants, belt, and necessary pads) is handed out during the first day of practice.  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:

 08/10 to 08/20 Mon/Tues/Weds/Thurs (4 nights a week for the first two weeks)
 08/25 to 08/27 Tues/Weds/Thurs (3 nights for the third week)
 09/01 to end of regular season Tuesday & Thursday (2 nights a week once school starts)



Weight Certification will likely be held September 5th with a make-up date as September 11th (date/time/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.  Cards are kept with the head coach and are checked by the opposing team at the beginning of each game.  Players are not required to weigh in prior to every game.  

West Jersey Youth Football follows NJ high school rules, as dictated by NJSIAA. The season schedule is determined by West Jersey Youth Football and is subject to change. Once the schedule is established, it will be publicized on the website.  Championship games are typically played the weekend before Thanksgiving.

HVYF&CA issued equipment is to be returned at the end of the season.  Head coaches will communicate with their team via email detailing the date and time for equipment return.
