Football Information


High Point Midget Football (HPMF) offers tackle football for the residents of Sussex, Wantage, Lafayette, Branchville and Montague for all youth levels starting at Kindergarden all the way up to 8th grade. HPMF competes within the North Jersey Youth Football League (NJYFL) which offers the below levels of play:

  • Rumble - Grades K through 2nd
  • Pony - Grades 3rd & 4th
  • Super - Grades 5th & 6th (see note below)
  • PeeWee - Grade 7th
  • Midget - Grade 8th 

Note: The NJYFL is considering individual 5th grade and 6th grade teams instead of a combined 5th and 6th grade team. The league will not know if they are capable of doing this until all registrations from participating towns are complete.

High Point Midget Football only offers tackle football as we do not provide Flag division teams. Practices start August 1st with the first game being the first weekend after Labor Day. Practices are typically 2, 3 or 4 days a week depending on the level. Games are played on Saturday's during the late afternoon or evening and on Sunday's in the afternoon.
