Jaguar Pride – Fan Jerseys Now Available

TJYFB Community,

You spoke and we listened!!!  We are now offering Fan Jerseys for the parents, grandparents, siblings, friends, etc. who want to support their Little Jags in the upcoming 2015 TJ Youth Football Season.

What better way to show your Jaguar Pride than to wear the same jersey your kid(s) wear on the field.  Now you can support them and be their #1 fans in the stands.  The Fan Jersey will be the same as the kids, but will have a different cut to them.

TJYFB is now offering Fan Jersey’s for all registered users to purchase.  The jerseys will start at $50 and will be the same jersey your child wears (with the custom last name on the back as well as the chosen number), but it will NOT be game cut.  They will be a more relaxed-fit jersey.

What does game cut mean?
Game cut jerseys are specifically engineered to fit tight over the players pads.  They include fly-wire strength around the neck area to help resist stretching of the jersey.  The jerseys are also created with stretched fabrics to reduce tearing and to give the jersey more flexibility as well as a strategic ventilation over all the heat zones of the body.

What is the Fan Jersey?
The fan jersey is basically the same look as the game cut jersey, but is a better fit to wear for the fans.  It is comfortable, durable, lightweight jersey to wear just about anywhere for the avid TJ Football Fan.  This is tailored for easier movement, contains no annoying neck tags and gives the jersey a lighter feel.

Please go to our registration page – Blue Sombrero – to get your Fan Jersey today!  Hurry because the last day to order is May 14, 2015!  There will be NO exceptions as we need to get the order in to have by game time.

Youth Jerseys cost $50

Adult Jerseys cost $55

*If you have not signed your child(ren) up yet, you will have the option of selecting both available programs – 1.) Football signups 2.) Fan Jersey.  If you have ALREADY signed up, please log back into the registration site and go to the available Fan Jersey program.  The price will display as $0.00, but will add up once you select your jersey(s) from the selection list.

Safety – TJYFB Organization’s NUMBER ONE Concern

The game of football can be rough.  All of the big hits, twisting body parts and strains on the body.  However, with all of the top-of-the line equipment TJYFB provides to the kids as well as teaching the safest most important way to play the game, our organization strives on safety.

DID YOU KNOW?  That in the WHOLE TJYFB league (every age group) in the 2014 season, we did not have ONE concussion?  That…is…impressive!  That is one strong statement we stand by as an organization that all of the other competing organizations could not attest to.

Plain and simple…we take safety VERY seriously and we want the kids to learn the game of football, play with safety in mind and more importantly, have fun.

Here is a very informational video on tackling.  So important, that even one of the NFL’s top teams, The Seattle Seahawks practice this as well.  Please take a moment to check it out.  This video takes away tackling with the helmet and promotes safe and effective shoulder tackling while always keeping your head up.

TJYFB Accepts Parkway Youth Football League Invite

The TJYFB Board of Directors voted early in January to accept an invitation to join the Parkway Youth Football League and begin competition in the conference in the 2015 football year.

A source told TJSPN (Thomas Jefferson Sports Programming Network) that the Thomas Jefferson Jaguars Youth Football Organization made its official move to the PYFL as of January 2015.

“We have an enormous number of respect for the PYFL area,” said Don Schmidt. “Our fans there are huge and heretofore it was rare that we would ever have an opportunity for our teams to compete in this organization and reconnect with those fans and supporters. Now the fact that we can compete with these other great teams of the PYFL, (means) a greater presence from a recruiting perspective, connecting with more of our parents, fans and kids.”

This will be an extremely exciting time for the TJYFB organization and we hope to see more parents and kids get involved in this great tradition of football in the Thomas Jefferson School District Area.
