Center Jr. Cougars (CJC) is a non-profit, volunteer-run organization, designed to provide tackle football and cheerleading opportunities to Center USD youth ages 6 to 14. It is the goal of CJC to promote academic excellence, sportsmanship, fair play, and teamwork, as well as to provide training and experience for future Center High School Cougars.
CJC is a member of the Sacramento Youth Football League (SYF), a league that does not impose weight limits, which allows all student athletes the opportunity to play. To be a member of SYF, all teams must be affiliated with the local high school, and have written permission from the Varsity Head Coach. CJC is governed by the bylaws created by the Board, and the policies and procedures outlined in the SYF Rule Book.

ensure that the highest quality program can be offered to the
student athletes of Center Unified School District. We appreciate everyone who is
