The Jets Youth Football Organization welcomes ALL interested children ages 6 to 14 regardless of experience or ability. Our goals are to teach; instill core values of discipline, respect, teamwork; to grow confidence; and ultimately, to develop players who love the game of football. These goals are executed within a framework that recognizes various constraints relating to participation in a contact sport. As competitors in the Northern Connecticut Football League, these constraints include safety and varied player development both physically and by ability level. Taking all of these factors into consideration, The Jets Board mandates minimum playing requirements, by squad, to ensure playing time for all participants while allowing ample flexibility for coaching discretion.

The following are MUST play minimums per player, by squad, by squad size. Squad size is determined by the number of eligible players (in attendance, weighed-in and physically able to play) on each given game day rather than the actual full roster. During playoff games, A team only will follow a SHOULD play rule rather than MUST.

A 4 plays regardless of team size
B 6 plays <23 players; 4 plays for 23+ players
C 8 plays <23 players; 6 plays for 23+ players
D 10 plays <23 players; 8 plays for 23+players
ALL PLAYERS on D squad will START within the season

All plays include special teams.

Mandatory play time is, however, dependent upon attendance at practices. Players missing more than 1 unexcused practice per week will not start in the first series. Players missing more than 2 unexcused practices per week have no mandatory play requirements within that game.

Additionally, specific concerns regarding behavior or safety may result in the loss of mandatory play time. These concerns must be addressed with players/parents by the coach prior to games.

To best ensure the above mandates are met, a “play counter” will submit records to the Coaching Coordinator. The Coaching Coordinator will discuss any violations of the policy with the Head Coach making appropriate recommendations to the board based on the severity of the offense. Concerns, questions and issues, whether covered herein or yet to be revealed regarding play time, will be overseen by the Coaching Coordinator with final decisions determined by the board.

In order to facilitate open dialogue and to avoid conflicts of interest, the President, Vice-President and Coaching Coordinator positions WILL NOT be held by the Head Coach of any squad. Should the occasion arise where a qualified Head Coach cannot be found, the board may elect to approve a volunteer to fill both roles for that given scenario.
