There are two Jr Raider Jr Skyland Football Conference (JSFC) teams: JV for 5th & 6th graders and Varsity for 7th & 8th graders. These teams will be made up of players selected from those who register for Tackle Football during the August practice weeks. These teams will play in the Jr Skyland Football Conference which includes opponents from the surrounding towns. At this level they will use high school rules and follow the High School Skyland Conference playing schedule as closely as possible. Practices will be Monday - Friday beginning in mid August. Once school starts practice will be held three times a week on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday nights. Games are on played Saturday evenings. JV games are at 5:30 PM and Varsity games are at 7:30 PM. Home games are played at the Hillsborough High School turf field. For more information refer to the Jr Skyland Football Conference website. The Jr Skyland Football Conference follows the National Federation of State High School Association rules and safety guidelines.
The players on these teams are made up of individuals who the coaches and directors feel will best represent the Jr Raiders and Hillsborough Township in a competitive environment. This is a goal we strongly encourage all our players to strive for as they build up their knowledge and skills for the game.
We are very proud of the many championship records our JV and Varsity teams have obtained, which includes State Champion. These records are listed under Boro Pride - Skyland Football Champions. There are very few organizations in the state with records that can compare to the Jr Raiders.
