Our hope is that our Mercer Island Junior Football program will provide lasting lessons our players will have throughout their lives.

B. To provide instruction on the rules, methods of proper contact and fundamentals (blocking, tackling, running, etc) of the game.
C. To provide maximum protection and safety through proper supervision and equipment, realizing this is a contact sport.
