Welcome to RYSI Tackle Football

Ridge Youth Sports Inc. Tackle  Football welcomes Players 7 - 14 years old. If your child is in grades K through 5th and would like to play flag football, please CLICK HERE for our Flag Football League info.

As we enter the 2020 season, we are proud to announce that RYSI has partnered with Pop Warner and will be competing in the Central Jersey Pop Warner League.  Joining RYSI are some of our long-time friends from N. Hunterdon, Phillipsburg and Voorhees.  Through this partnership, we are able to bring to RYSI an established conference (and steady flow of games) offering unlimited weight football with a local presence.  We feel this partnership is in the best interest of Ridge as we usher in the next decade of youth football with a conference alignment offering nearly 20 competitive towns.

This partnership will eliminate many of the issues that arose during the 2019 season (i.e., game cancellations, schedule changes, non-conference challenges) due to the limited number of teams in our prior conference.  And, this new alignment will provide Ridge an opportunity to compete on a weekly basis over a 8 week regular game season as well as post season. 

During past seasons, we have utilized a grade-based distinction for teams.  This season, the new conference (as well as its National governing body) requires alignment of teams by age (utilizing a July 31 birthday cut-off).  This will allow Ridge to offer tackle football across the following age brackets:  8U, 10U, 12U and 14U.  Accordingly, the breakdown is as follows:

Mitey Mite - 7/8 yr. olds

Jr. Peewee - 8/9/10 yr. olds

Jr. Varsity - 10/11/12 yr. olds 

Varsity - 12/13/14 yr. olds


As you enter registration, please note some key dates that will help you manage your calendars appropriately:

  1. Practice begins Monday, August 10th (practices are Monday-Friday, through August 28th);
  2. First games are scheduled for the weekend of August 29th;
  3. Beginning September 8th, practices will be held on Tuesday (6:30pm-8:30pm), Thursday (6:30pm-8:30pm and Friday; and
  4. Regular game season is 8 weeks long followed by a post-season.

Please join us this year as we begin our new era with the Central Jersey Pop Warner League.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at [email protected] or at 908-766-1311.
