In 2011, our program had 7 football teams and 5 cheerleading squads.
AYF offers Spring Tackle football, football camps, and 7 on 7 off season leagues.
AYC allows the cheerleaders to participate in clinics during the offseason and HFA will be taking advantage of this!
Many of the HFA coaches have multiple years coaching experience.
In 2011, HFA changed our affiliation from Pop Warner to American Youth Football & Cheer along with 31 other Jersey Shore Associations forming NJAYF (New Jersey American Youth Football).
In 2012, NJAYF has grown to 40 associations.
NJAYF sent an 8th grade all-star team to Nationals this year – they were the underdog, but brought home the National Championship!
AYF/AYC has an All Star game in January and NJAYF accepted applications from each association and carefully selected a handful of football players and cheerleaders from the conference (NJAYF) to attend – an unforgettable experience for those boys and girls.
In 2011, NJAYF won a $10,000 grant from Kraft Foods for scoring highest in the “Huddle to Fight Hunger” challenge – HFA held canned food drives, bake sales, and volunteered at a local soup kitchen to help score points for our conference. AYF/C believes in giving back to the community!
AYF&C Academic All-American honors all scholar athletes who have a 98% or higher grade point average.
HFA’s mission is to instill life-long values of teamwork, fair play, hard work and dedication both on and off the playing field while encouraging our participants to achieve academic excellence.
In 2011, HFA had one football player and one cheerleader named to the Scholar Team – a wonderful accomplishment.

I am sure you are all aware of the precautions being taken at the HS level concerning Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease. I have been in contact with the HS Athletic Department and there are currently no restrictions on the use of the Athletic Facilities at the HS.
Regarding our program, to my knowledge there have been no cases of HFMD reported and as a result, I would expect our practices and games the remainder of the week to go on as planned. If anything changes, I will make sure we communicate with you immediately.
That being said, I am asking the coaches & team moms to keep an eye on your teams and report to us if you know of anyone that may have been infected. It is imperative that parents let us know if their child is ill. No names need be mentioned but at that point we may need to take precautions ourselves to prevent any further spread amongst our teams and families. If a kid misses practice, we need to know why so we can act accordingly.
We appreciate your help and hope that all of our kids remain healthy.
