We are focused on the administration and education of American (Tackle) Football, as Jamaica already has a long history with athletes excelling in Tackle Football. Our diaspora has readily adopted American football and used it as a vehicle to complete their university education and some have been lucky enough to compete professionally in the US, Canada and Europe.
Establishing The National Tackle Football Association, we intend to use Tackle Football as a tool, not a recreational respite, for young men of Jamaica to take advantage of the same opportunities afforded to the American Student Athlete. The NTFA has applied for membership to the IFAF, International tackle football federation formed in 1998.
Currently, the NTFA is in the initial stages of creating the association and developing member institutions along with the educational and operational programs that aid in the developmental process of Tackle Football.
