Sparta Youth Football & Cheer Families,


We are sending an update to everyone to keep you up to date with all that is going on within our program along with reminding our football community of our expectations.


We still have NO Sparta Youth Football players, cheerleaders or coaches that have tested positive for COVID-19. 


As we have stated before it is imperative that you communicate to our program (Head Coach and/or Josh Hertzberg) if you or anyone in your family has come in contact with someone that is suspected of having COVID-19 or has tested positive for COVID-19.  Quarantining your family is of utmost importance not only to our program, but our community.


Depending on the situation, and that could be different for many families, the return to play guidelines will vary.  Please contact Josh Hertzberg ( with any questions you may have relating to a potential quarantine or when someone can return to play.  Also, since our league is following the NJSIAA return to play, you can also find these guidelines on the NJSIAA website.


We are very confident in having a football season and are expecting to resume practices next week.  We were proactive in addressing the current situation in Sparta and have been following the guidelines set by the NJDOH and NJSIAA as it relates to practices since we began.  Our Sparta Youth Football & Cheer families have also done their part and we thank you!


Please be diligent and continue to overcommunicate to our program if any issues or concerns arise.  Again, if you have not reached out to us yet and you feel your family has been in contact with a person who is suspected of COVID-19 or has been confirmed to have COVID-19, please do so now!


Our Head Coaches are scheduled to have their league coaches meeting this weekend.  Games are set to begin next weekend barring any issues within our program, which as we stated earlier, we have none at this point.


Please remember, over communication with our program is imperative to the season!

    Sparta Youth Football and Cheer

    The Spartans have been the official, endorsed football program within Sparta Township, NJ since 1957. Though other programs have come and gone, the tradition of the Spartans remains stronger than ever. The Spartans Youth Football / Cheerleading program is firmly rooted within the community. The Spartans host community-wide events (including our annual "Milkbowl"). The events are designed not only to raise funding for local programs; but to raise awareness to important issues impacting our community.

    All members of our football family are invited and encouraged to become involved in every aspect of our program. From coaching, to announcing - - fundraising, to fields; the Spartan program is fueled 100% by volunteer efforts.

    Join our football family today - - and become part of the Spartan legacy, forever.
