HomeAbout UsOur Belief

Everyone agrees that the youth of Jamaica deserve the best possible education.

The National Tackle Football Association (NTFA) is committed to this ideal, and to the belief that a quality education does not begin or end in the classroom.

When our young athletes migrate to the US a special phenomenon occurs, they also migrate from playing soccer to playing tackle football. It is not a question of popularity or availability it is a question of culture and opportunity. Each Division One University provides 9 scholarships for soccer and 9 for track as opposed to 85 for football; it is a simple question of numbers and exposure.

The possibility of Tackle Football here in Jamaica is a preverbal game changer to say the least. We have three major sports in our institutions, Soccer, Track and Cricket. Soccer carries a squad of approximately 20 athletes, as for track if the athlete is not running a sub 10.9 (100m) you will not be very successful in this country. We find athletes that fall outside of this range to be marginalized, not able to compete on a local, national or international stage not to mention any real opportunity to earn a college athletic scholarship.

We are pleased to introduce this opportunity for your institution to present a sport that student athletes that of all physical stature can compete and further enhancing their high school and post graduate experience.

MEET THE NTFA

We have an opportunity to develop programs that will enhance not only the personal experience for each athlete but the overall development of each community and Jamaica as a whole.
