Frequently Asked Questions
When does the season start and end?
The season starts with our football camp in late July and ends in early/mid-November (depending on our involvement in Playoffs!).
When is the Football summer camp & is it Mandatory?
Summer camp is usually scheduled for the end of July. For the 2020 season, it will run from July 27th to the 30th. It is free to all and is not mandatory.
How are teams split & who is my kid’s coach?
Teams are generally split by grade level.
If I have multiple kids in the program (multiple football players or kids in cheer as well as football) can I ensure that my kids are together on the same team or my cheerleader cheers for my football player's team?
If the children’s ages work out that way, yes. However, due to safety concerns and age restrictions we must follow when it comes to forming our competition/football teams, we will not move a cheerleader or football player out of their age-assigned team. In the past our TJF program parents have been great at working together and taking turns carpooling to games and practices to make the lives of those with kids in multiple activities easier.
When & Where are Practices?
For the 2020 season, Preseason practices start Monday August 17th. All practices take place at behind Timberlane High School or Timberlane Middle School in Plaistow, NH.
When & Where are Games?
Football games are most often held on Saturdays. All Home games are held at the Timberlane Regional High School field. Addresses and check-in times for away games will be sent out the week of the game. Furthest away game in prior years has been about an hour drive, depending on traffic.
What kind of gear does TJF provide and what does my football player need?
We supply all football equipment except for cleats and mouthpieces.
Can my football player be involved in other sports during the season?
We discourage it, but its a parent(s)/player decision.
