The WCMFL is pleased to announce our plans to increase player safety within our league. Beginning with the 2017 season the WCMFL will require all teams in our Flag Division to supply and use a soft protective headgear made exclusively by Gamebreaker. For the 2016 season, nearly half of our teams will be outfitted with protective headgear and as a part of this initiative, the WCMFL is the first league in NJ and the North East to mandate the Gamebreaker headgear. Gamebreaker's uniquely designed protective caps have also achieved accreditation from the International Rugby Board.

Some of you may have read in the news that Pop Warner made a recent change to their program by eliminating kickoffs for the following divisions: Tiny Mite (ages 5-7), Mitey Mite (7-9) and Junior Pee Wee (8-10) divisions. While this announcement helps to underscore what youth leagues are doing to better the game for our youth, it is important to know that the Warren County Midget (Youth) Football League has had this rule in place since we started in 1950. The WCMFL takes pride as being a leader in youth football, and more importantly, our commitment to the safety and the welfare of our players.
