TJFL was founded on the belief to develop strong and healthy bodies; to train them in good sportmanship; to understand and obey the rules; and to develop football skill in accordance with the age level and ability of each participant. It is this belief that drives a fundamental principle that ALL TJFL player have a starting position on the field. There are NO BENCH-WARMERS in TJFL.
TJFL was honored to be able to send 20+ Mom's to take part in the Denver Broncos Mom's Safety Clinic. At the event they taught the basics of Heads Up Football: Proper Tackling Techniques, Proper Equipment Fitting, & Importance of Proper Hydration, etc...
For over 20 years TJFL has offered an annual mini camp for our players and cheerleaders. This is a special event for the kids to get a head start on the season. Our coaches take the kids through warm-up and a myriad of drills to work on their fundamentals. We are also honored to have 5-6 local High Schools bring out their Varsity players to help out and work with our players. This is a highlight for the kids every year! We also host the NFL Punt, Pass, & Kick during this event.
"Thanks to everyone for working and volunteering at the NFL Punt, Pass and Kick on July 18. We had a total of 305 participants, which is a new single day record and probably the largest in the state. I think this was probably the best run event in 20 years. Please pass my thanks along to the TJFL coaches who helped this year. They did a great job! Whoever organized the rotation and timing of bringing the participants over did an excellent job!"

TJFL offers our kids and parents a unique experience to attend a game at Folsom Field for only $25. The kids all got the opportunity to go down on the field and get their picture taken. We also when to Balch Fieldhouse for a great performance from the band and the cheerleaders. Then our Cheer girls got to meet the CU Cheer team. Next year, when the construction on Folsom Field is completed the kids will get to be on the field when Ralphie and the team take the field. What an experience for our young athletes.
Before our Fall season begins, Dr. Peter Knott with Indian Crest Pediatric in Westminster offers our players & cheerleaders the ability to get their required physical taken care of for only $5. This wonderful service is offered to the first 350 TJFL kids on the day of the event.
