To be eligible to play in the 2021 season (without an age waiver), a player must weigh at least 60 pounds and have a birth date on or before July 31, 2013, but not before August 1, 2006 and live within the Hazen High School boundaries. With Club approval and parental waiver, a 7-year-old who weighs at least 60 pounds may play. No experience is necessary. Both boys and girls are welcome.
Registration fees alone are not enough to cover club expenses. The HJFC (as well as all clubs) rely on registration fees, volunteers, and fundraising efforts to fully cover stadium fees, insurance, equipment, referees, practice facilities, medical equipment, and a number of other related expenses.
Official schedules are posted as the club and league calendars are settled. In general, practices start in August, and games start in September and continue through October with some teams possibly advancing to up to 3 playoff games in November.
The HJFC is a 100% volunteer organization. Parent participation is mandatory to sustain the organization. HJFC has many volunteer opportunities each year ranging from being a committee member to fund raising, to being a coach, a team parent, team photographer, announcer, running the score board / clock or holding down markers at games.
