About Us

The Nisqually Junior Football League (NJFL) is a non-profit organization whose sole purpose is to provide youth football in Pierce 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 few teams, to our current league of 29 organizations.  We are always reviewing requests from new teams as well as from others previously affiliated with other leagues.  This 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.
