Asalamu’alaykum and Peace Be Upon You!

All praise is due to our Lord and Creator, the most Benevolent and Merciful, the One upon whom we completely rely.

This message is to inform you that the Jersey Association of Muslim Sports (JAMS) will no longer offer an Adult Flag Football league. JAMS was founded with the simple mission of building a brotherhood amongst people of very different cultural, ethnic, and religious backgrounds through sports. Over the past decade, through your support and dedication, we believe we have succeeded in accomplishing this mission for the over 1,000 players that have participated through the years!

As we look back, we fondly remember the competitive and fun atmosphere of each game, week after week, as the weather changed from picturesque sun filled days to frozen tundras that froze our breath and our bodies to the core. We remember the star athletes and the groups of old friends. We remember those with something to prove, and those just looking to get in shape. We remember the countless hours of off-field strategizing over lunch and dinner, family outings, group hangouts, and any place we met each other. We remember the trash talking and the tears. But most of all, we remember the comraderies that were built despite what happened on the field, and the friendships that were reignited or formed anew; to many of us it was more than just a game.

In addition to fond memories, we celebrate all the off-field benefit the league brought, such as feeding the poor, launching and supporting several youth leagues, launching and supporting several summer camps for hundreds of youth around New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The administrative staff of JAMS have changed focus to initiatives that gear towards the needs of the youth. For those looking to still get together through sports we would guide you to our sister organization offering adult basketball (www.MUSLIMBASKETBALL.org).

In closing out, we would first like to thank God for allowing us through His benevolent mercy to enjoy this league and the company of each other. Secondly, we would like to thank the tireless efforts of the many administrators and staff who year after year made this league great, may God accept all their efforts.

Lastly, we thank all of you, without whom there would have been no league to begin with.

With Love and Peace,
JAMS Administration

P.S. Please keep on the lookout for a special JAMS Reunion BBQ in the next few months God willing.
