North Creek Junior Jaguars Football & Cheer
North Creek Junior Jaguars Football (NCJJFA or Jr. Jaguars Football) is the newest expansion Club to be become part of Greater Eastside Junior Football Association (GEJFA). NCJJFA became the 18th independently operated Club (see map below) within GEJFA upon our separation from our sponsor club, Bothell Cougar Junior Football Association, and a feeder program to North Creek High School in 2017. Any child age 6-14 that will attend North Creek High School is eligible to participate in our program
Our program is considered the only true "Feeder" program for the High School. Our athletes are strictly North Creek kids only. Our program participates in the GEJFA (Greater Eastside Junior Football Association). The High School plays in the KINGCO conference. GEJFA is a junior football organization associated to the KINGCO league. This means every HS in our conference has a junior program competing against the same schools within that HS league. Kids grow up playing with the same kids, against the kids they will compete against in HS.
Jr. Jaguars Football is 501(c)3 non-profit organization responsible for its own registration, fund raising, equipment outfitting, and internal Club administration (election of Club Board members) and scheduling (e.g., Club Board meetings, identification and assignment of practice fields, etc.) all consistent with the GEJFA Rules.
GEJFA was formed by the Bellevue Boys and Girls Club in 1963 to provide contact football in a program that respects the Boys and Girls Club philosophy. GEJFA serves all youth between the ages of 8 and 14. There are five levels of play based on an age/weight formula to ensure that players compete against players of like size and age. The levels are Rookie, Cub, Sophomore, Junior Varsity and, Varsity. There are seventeen franchise Clubs that comprise the GEJFA, representing the youth of the Bellevue, Mercer Island, Kirkland, Redmond, Sammamish, Lake Forest Park, Kenmore, Bothell, Woodinville, Duvall, Carnation, Snoqualmie, North Bend, Issaquah, East Renton, and Newcastle. Each Club has geographical boundaries, which in most cases, are the same or similar to the local high school. The GEJFA junior football program is unique in its high number of participants and rules to ensure the equitable playing time for all players.
