The start of the West Essex Cowboys season is here!

The first and most important part of reporting to practice is this screening form:

Please click here to download form

Every player must report to practice with this form filled out, up until "Was the athlete's temperature reading at the beginning of practice greater than 100.3°?"  Temperature will be taken once the player arrives at the field.

DROP OFF AREA - ALL PLAYERS are to be dropped off at the upper parking lot by the snack stand.  This is where each player will have their temperature taken.

Please do not report to the field any earlier than your level's report time.  If your report time is 6:00pm, please arrive no earlier than 5:45pm.  For 6:30pm report time, please arrive after 6:15pm.

We thank you in advance for your patience under these new guidelines.

Registration is now open!  Click here or on the link to the right to begin registration. 

New to registration this year:

  • Cheerleading, Flag Football & Tackle Football can all be registered on the same form
  • You will need to create an account to register.  This is a 1-time account creation that allows you to login to register for future events/seasons.

The WEJFL schedule has been added for the A, B, and C teams.  Please note that the games will be played either Saturday evenings or Sunday afternoons, depending on the opponent.  At this time, all games are listed as Saturday only for posting purposes.  As we get closer to the start of the season, the games days will be updated.


The West Essex Junior Football League is preparing for the 2020 season.   As guidelines for the return to youth sports continue to be updated, the league is taking guidance from several sources, including:

CDC guidelines for youth sports, NJ state guidelines for youth sports, NJSIAA guidelines for high school football & cheerleading, USA Football Return to Youth Football Guidelines, and Pop Warner guidelines. 


Additionally the league will be mandating further safety measures, including league mandated lower facemask shields, and neck gaiters for players, cheerleaders, coaches, staff, etc.


With all the new guidelines set forth this year we will be asking all parents for their increased cooperation while we meet and follow the new guidelines.


With the current guidelines set in place, the WEJFL has a tentative practice start date of September 1st, 2020*.  The tentative date for first games is the weekend of October 2nd.  


*The D Team and Flag Football program will be starting later than the A, B & C teams (which are starting the week of September 1st)


Please stay safe & healthy during this trying time
