Forever FAITH, Forever FAMILY, Forever FINISH, Forever EASTSIDE!

We are a faith-based athletic community. Our touchstones are Faith, Family, Football & Fun! However, you do not need to be Catholic to participate.

Who we are

ECJF is a faith-centered youth tackle, flag football, and cheer program headquartered in Sammamish, Washington.
The program was founded in 2004 to provide a place where parochial and private school students could play youth football with their friends without any geographic restrictions. The program has expanded its base well beyond private school students and welcomes anyone who is seeking the ECJF’s unique brand of youth football.
Our program is modeled on the belief, “that a player’s character is just as important as his ability”. Abusive or profane behavior is not tolerated by anyone involved in ECJF and the importance of players getting and keeping on top of their academic studies is constantly reinforced by the coaching staffs.
ECJF is a proud member of the Northwest Junior Football League (NJFL) which is an age and weight restricted league with teams from Seattle to Mill Creek.
ECJF is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation.

Tradition of Champions

Congratulations to all the players and Cheerleaders for showing your Crusader pride and playing with the highest degree of sportsmanship! More than wins and losses, remember the many life lessons you learned such as having goal-oriented determination, holding yourself accountable as a contributing part of a larger group, not fearing mistakes when learning something new, working with pride, and winning with humility!  Most of all, remember the fun and friendships!
