Northeast Junior High Football League UPDATE ON THE SAFE RETURN OF YOUTH SPORTS:

First and foremost, we hope you and your families are continuing to stay healthy and safe during this time! The health and safety of our NJHFL community – from our student-athletes to our coaches, fans and volunteers – has been our top priority from the start and will continue to be our top priority as we make decisions about returning to practice and play.


Like everyone from the NFL to the NCAA, we are actively looking at scenarios, planning our approach and taking guidance from the experts. That has meant listening to the direction of the CDC, public health officials, our gov't officials and USA Football.

While a sudden shift in the public health picture could alter our timeline, we expect to have our plan for return to practice and play prior to the start of preseason practice. In the meantime, we will continue to communicate the work we are doing and provide regular updates to our programs about the upcoming season.

We expect that the NH State Reopening Task Force will continue to provide updates and guidance as the summer progresses

As we continue to work on our Return to Play playbook, some of the issues/challenges we will be addressing are

- An understanding of the liabilities & the minimization of risk.

- The creation of an operating playbook.

- Communication to field owners, parents, referees & coaches.

- The creation of a learning & feedback plan.

As always, we appreciate your support while we continue taking the appropriate steps towards a safe return to football.
