Although its not even Summer yet, its already time to start thinking about football and more specifically for your kids, the 2013 South Dakota Junior Football League.

South Dakota Junior Football is an instructional participation tackle football program for area youth in 2nd though 8th grade.  This organization was established in 1969 by a number of Sioux Falls business leaders and parents who wanted their children to better learn and understand the game of football before entering high school.

The Sign-ups begin Friday April 26th, 2013.

Teams are aligned into four divisions:  Rookie Division is made up of 2nd graders, Pee Wee Division is made up of 3rd and 4th graders, Junior Division is made up of 5th and 6th graders, and Senior Division is made up of 7th and 8th graders.  All players are placed on teams by address with other players from the same neighborhood.

All teams play a 6 game regular season schedule and are guaranteed 2 playoff games.  Games are played on the 9 South Dakota Junior Football fields in the new Sanford Youth Sports Complex in NW Sioux Falls and on the 2 fields at the Yankton High School.
