There are five Hudson County teams, Bayonne, Hoboken, Jersey City PAL, North Bergen and Union City and two non-Hudson County teams, Brick and East Orange that make up the HCYFL. Football ages start at age 8 and run to 14* (*non-high school participate only).All squads have cheerleaders as well, same ages. As football season is underway, why not come out and see a good youth football tackle program. These kids are all super, during practice and during games.
