The Nisqually Junior Football League (NJFL) is a non-profit organization whose sole purpose is to provide youth football in North Pierce/South King County areas for youth between ages of 6 and 14.  We are dedicated to providing the best coaching, equipment, and competition for all who participate in this league.   Though this is a competitive league, safety and sportsmanship shall never give way to competition.  We believe in and promote the following character values:

  • Respect – for yourself, opponents, officials, and spectators.
  • Responsibility – accountable for one’s own actions
  • Integrity – truthfulness and following through with commitments
  • Sportsmanship – fair play

We have grown from our humble beginnings of a couple of teams, to our current league size.  We are always reviewing requests from new teams as well as from others previously affiliated with other leagues.  Our growth is due to the common goal shared by all of the organizations within our league to provide a safe and positive football experience for the kids.

The NJFL’s primary goal is to prepare the kids with the proper fundamentals and skills to succeed at the next level of football. At the same time we have not lost sight of the fact that we are here for the kids and we want the kids to have fun while involved with the NJFL and to have a positive playing experience.

Each organization in our league is independently managed.  This means that teams set their own registration costs and registration periods.  In addition, all teams oversee their own uniform requirements and equipment handouts.

The league is designed to be a "grade-first",  feeder league. This means that most of the organizations have direct relationships with their local school district programs and as such, follow closely to school district boundaries.
