Individual game dates and times will be determined and announced once the organizations produce their home field schedules. Our home game schedule will remain as it has been in the past with varisty games on Saturday starting with the 70lb team at 12:00, followed by the 85s at 1:45, 105s at 3:30, 120s at 5:15 and the unlimiteds at 7:00. The majority of the JV games will be played on Sundays. Pre season games will be scheduled as the season approaches. 

This year, in order to provide a more balanced competitive experience for all teams, the league has divided into two conferences. The conferences are grouped by roster size with organizations of 180 players or more being in one conference and organizations with rosters below 180 players in the other. While each team will play 3 out of conference games, the playoffs will be separated with each conference playing for their own championship.The conferences consist of the following teams:

Under 180 Conference
Over 180 Conference
Deptford
Gloucester Township
Eastern
Marlton
Fleetwood
Monroe
Interboro
Pennsauken
Logan
Washington Township
Medford
Winslow


Every team will make the playoffs with the first two seeds in each conference getting a first round bye. Playoffs will be three rounds beginning the weekend of November 15th with Championships on Thanksgiving weekend. 

With our schedule now determined, football season is truly right around the corner. Looking forward to a great season of Medford Indians football.
