With a very successful 2018 campaign behind us, the PPYFC has big plans for the upcoming 2019 season.
The Point Pleasant Pirates football program competes in the nation’s premiere conference, New Jersey American Youth Football (NJAYF) - Jersey Shore Conference. The Pirate teams play local teams in towns of similar size within Ocean and Monmouth counties, thus providing our players with the safest environment possible. One main goal of the Point Pleasant Pirates football program is to strive to make sure the children always come first. Safety, integrity, fundamentals, and team work are the key ingredients to the success of our program. We are proactive in any and all education with regard to safety and the training of fundamentals. Players and coaches will have the opportunity to attend local training camps and clinics to obtain the latest instruction in technique and matters of player safety.
We will be fielding teams at multiple levels of play affording all registered players placement on the appropriate squad based on his/her age.
Traditional Flag Football: Teams consist of 5 and 6 year old players. Focus is on fundamentals of the game and is purely instructional. No score is kept.
Tackle Football: Tackle football begins at age 7 with the 7U division and the 9U division (8 and 9 year olds). On this level, players wear full gear. The focus is on the very basics of the game including the proper way to tackle and once again, no official score is kept during the game. Beginning with the 10U division, the coaches begin coaching from the sidelines rather than being on the field with the team during the game. Official scores are kept and count toward the team’s eligibility to participate in the playoff competitions at the end of the season.
As to the levels of play being offered for the 2019 season, we will be able to begin a more definitive list once we have completed our second registration in March.
