The JFLOCI is dedicated to young athletes who participate within our organization and to their safety and enjoyment. The JFLOCI will serve affiliated members by providing at a reasonable price equipment, organization, insurance and a fundraising program for youth football participants, while promoting the sport of contact football, education and character development to young people between the ages of 8 and 14 years old. Flag football has different age requirements, please refer to rules. Cheerleaders must be the age of 8 years old, please see rules for more info.
