Wayne Valley High Schools First Ever Girls Flag Football Team

Wayne, New Jersey - At the February 10, 2022 Public Work Session, the Board approved the $8,000 grant from the New York Jets to start Wayne Valley’s first ever girls Flag Football program.  The grant includes Nike uniforms, flags, and footballs. The NFL has been reaching out to communities across New Jersey, and there are several surrounding communities that will also have girls flag football teams.  63 Wayne Valley girls attended the general interest meeting, and the plan is for the team to start this spring.  The Jets committed to offering funding for a Wayne Hills girls flag football program for next year although the Wayne Board of Education is seeking to fund a team for Wayne Hills so the programs start at the same time.
