BJSA is committed to teaching the fundamentals of football to all age groups. Football teaches good sportsmanship, teamwork, discipline and the importance of physical fitness. We have an incedible group of all-volunteer coaches who work tirelessly throughout the fall with our football teams.
BJSA's Tackle Football Program fields teams with approximately 18-22 players on each team. Ages for this program are: 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. Ages for the various teams are determined as of June 1st of that year. All of the BJSA Teams will play in the Metro Youth Football League (myflomaha.org).
Games are played on Sunday afternoons at BJSA's home field at Haworth Park and at both East/West High School Stadiums. Away games for our traveling teams are played in the Metro area. Registration fees include the use of practice and game equipment with the exception of shoes and socks.

Effective July 1, 2012, sports organizations, including youth leagues such as the Bellevue Junior Sports Association (BJSA), are required to comply with the Concussion Awareness Act passed by the Nebraska legislature.
The bill affects athletes 19 years old or younger, sports organization, including youth leagues, club sports, or any organization sponsoring a sporting activity where there is a cost to participants or where such costs are sponsored must follow the law.
We are all responsible for complying with this new Act. After all, our goal is to keep our young athletes safe. In an effort to meet the requirements of this new legislation, we are doing the following:
Please take some time to review this material. We have a responsibility to take care of our athletes, and this is an important step.
A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury, or TBI, caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head that can change the way your brain normally works. Concussions can also occur from a blow to the body that causes the head to move rapidly back and forth. Even a “ding,” “getting your bell rung,” or what seems to be mild bump or blow to the head can be serious.
Concussions can occur in any sport or recreation activity. So, all coaches, parents, and athletes need to learn concussion signs and symptoms and what to do if a concussion occurs.
