The Eastern Junior Vikings Youth Football and Cheerleading program ( EJV ) is a youth sports program based in Voorhees, NJ that is set up to be a feeder program to Eastern Regional High School. We are working hard to keep the strong football tradition alive and well in our community.
We are all aware of the massic impact that COVID -19 has had on our communities accross the country. You can imagine the difficulty in raising funds in the form of donations and sponsorships during these times. The increase of league expendatures to keep our families safe as well as the lack of sponsors is putting a strain on the program. We have large expenses upcoming and are seeking some assistance from those willing so that we can continue to provide lifelong experiences and memories for the participants in our program.
EJV is a non-profit 5013c organization that has a mission to inspire youth to practice the ideals or sportsmanship, scholarship, fellowship, and physical fitness, regardless of race, creed, or color. To bring youth close together through the means of a common interest in sportsmanship, scholarship, fellowship, and athletic competition.
EJV is currently giving back to the community through various forms of charitable work, and fun – all inclusive community activities.
EJV has competed on a National Level in recent years, having 2 teams win a league regional championship, 2 years ago. These teams traveled to Canton, OH with the opportunity to compete for a Youth National Championship. In each of the last 3 seasons, we have fielded teams that have won a league championship. These are lifelong memories and bonds that are being formed.
In 2020 the EJV has begun an initiative to bring "concussion awareness", and player safety to the forefront in what is believed to be a first in our area. EJV is a USA Heads Up football certified program that follows the Heads-up concussion protocol. In conjunction with this personalized service is actively working to replace its aging fleet of helmets.
EJV does not turn any child away, and provides the necessary equipment for all of its 150 players free of charge. This is all done while keeping the cost of player registration at a minimum. This initiative is only made possible through donations from the community and donors like yourself. THANK YOU!
