Darien Junior Football
Darien, CT 06820
We are excited to get our season started today with the first session at Town Hall for all grades. Grades 3-5 will practice from 5:15-6:45 pm and grades 6-8 will practice from 6:00-7:30 pm. We are staggering the times so that there will be less traffic congestion and so that all practices will overlap so that all the coaches and kids can see Coach Trifone's Tackling Seminar beginning at 6:15 pm.
A few reminders...
1) All of those interested in coaching, whether as a head coach or an assistant that shows up to help on the sideline on game days, must be there for the Tackling Seminar tonight, as the league requires it.
2) After all practices end, every parent interested in coaching must attend the CPR/first aid session that Marge Trifone is holding at Darien High School at 8:00 pm (classroom C-108). Use the entrance by the tennis courts/gym, and keep turning right. If you miss this session, you will have to take the course w/Post 53, and we're not sure when they can do it. You will not be allowed on the practice field or sideline until this requirement is fulfilled. Also, this certification used to be good for two years; the league is now requiring everyone to get it annually, so even if you got certified last year, you need to attend the session tonight (8/18).
And we sincerely appreciate the effort everyone has already put in to get all of these requirements done. We know it's a lot of stuff - some repetitive - but our goal is to make this as safe and fun for the kids as we can.
3) Your son(s) should bring a water bottle, CLEATS, Helmet, t-shirt and shorts for the conditioning sessions; every player is required to get in 6 hours of conditioning before beginning contact drills.
4) Finally, please print and bring a signed copy of the DJFL waiver to give to your head coach. No player will be allowed to participate in contact drills until the head coach has this in-hand. We will reiterate this during the week.
Thanks again for your support and participation. Please be careful in the Town Hall parking lot, as there will be lots of little kids running to/from cars. Traffic flow at Town Hall is CLOCKWISE...please don't cut through the bottom lot to go around counter-clockwise - go to the top of the hill and go down behind Town Hall CLOCKWISE! We are looking forward to a great season.
Once teams are formed (early September for Tackle and mid September for flag), to view information about your team, click on the team tab above and then navigate to your team via the drop down menus. Each team has its own TEAM page for posting information. It is the Coaches responsibility to assign someone to keep the page up to date. During the season, see Team Pages for Practice Information.
ROSTERS: By mid-September, your rosters can be found on your team page. A "no contact" roster will be available to you for your team. You will need a passcode to obtain a roster with player details. Ask your coach to send an email to
