Want to participate in your local community? Become a sponsor for Sparta Youth Football and support youth in your area.
The Sparta Spartans Youth Football organization is the oldest, and one of the largest youth football programs in the state of New Jersey. Over our 60 years of teaching youth football, we have been successful in compiling the most championships in Northern New Jersey. And although it's a great feeling to help these young boys achieve success in football, our main goal has always been to teach character. Many of us who were lucky enough to come through this program as kids, never forgot the life lessons that we were taught through this game that we all love. It's an awesome responsibility that you are given to help mold these young minds through a tough game, all the while making sure that you do it safely. We are lucky that so many of our players come back as volunteers in our program to help continue our Spartan Legacy. It truly is a testament to our culture of giving back to our community.

Football is a great sport for physical activity, fun, and discipline. Don't worry if your kid has never played, as most kids here haven't so your child is not at a disadvantage. A lot of kids have only picked up a football in the last year to two, and every year we add more new kids to the program.
The bottom line was that ‘control’ became key in soccer-style kicking. Field goal kickers were much better able to ‘feel’ the ball on the foot when using the instep rather than the toe.
To a newcomer, American football can look overly complex. However, the fundamentals of the game are easy to understand and follow.
When we play defense we will fly to the football with enthusiasm and effort. We will communicate and talk it up with each other. If we make a big play, we'll get pumped about it!
