EJFL Parental Involvement
The Evansville Junior Football League prides itself in being one of the best football programs in the area and we know that it takes a dedicated bunch of parents to make that happen. The EJFL is made up of over 300 players and hundred's of parents who volunteer every year to help make the league what it is today. From coaches and commissioners to Team Moms and concession workers, it takes a lot of people who are committed to providing a team/player environment for our kids and future young adults. The EJFL encourages parental involvement at every level.
Being a Parent of an EJFL Athlete
It can be an emotional roller coaster for parents; watching your team lose or win has its ups and downs. When game day comes, we encourage parents to have fun and get into the spirit of the game! We also encourage parents to know when to draw the line. Parents, friends and family who are disruptive to the game, use vulgarity, and/or slanders any of our coaches, staff members, players, and REFEREE'S, will be asked to leave the premises.
