I know- priorities. Looking at Northern NJ- Morris, upper Somerset or upper Hunterdon county relocation for our family. I know lacrosse is king- but are there football programs in the middle schools in these areas?? Our son plays- and we are hoping some of the schools have teams.

I believe any football programs in those areas are run through town recreational programs and not schools. I lived in Somerset county growing up and the non-High School football programs were not part of the school. We called it "Pop Warner" leagues.

Default Middle School Football

Thanks to those replys. We have Pop Warner, as well, but by the time kids reach 6th grade, they all try out for the school team. It's highly competitive, and the kids who don't make the school team play Pop Warner. Most sports are not funded by the schools here either, but by parent led booster clubs. Just trying to figure out the sports scene so our son will know what he's getting into. I know it seems trivial- but to a 12 yr. old boy, it's a lot more important that good academics. At least in our case.

As a retired Athletic Director I believe I can tell you that your major choice for football at that age group will be the Pop Warner programs and other communities have similar recreational leagues under a different name. Most Public Schools as far as I know do not offer lower level programs ( below 9th grade ).. I do know that many of the Prep Schools ( Private) throughout NJ do offer competitive football ( Grades 7&8 ) I work as a registered football official and have worked sveral games involving teams mentioned above. One that comes to mind is Princeton Day School in Princeton. I believe several others, like Newark Academy offer programs. Hope it helps. I have a sense or feeling for what you are trying to do for your son. GoodLuck

There are no weight limit leagues around which are grade base, more prep for high school. Check out jrskylandfootball.org and find a team near you

Hamilton has Pop Warner as well as the Hamilton Football League and PAL.

Hamilton has a lot of youth baseball programs as well.
