The West Orange PAL Mustangs are one of the most exciting teams to watch in West Orange.
We play in the New Jersey Suburban Youth Football League, which is currently comprised of over 25 town programs split between two conferences. There are playoffs, Super Bowl, and an All-Star game to enhance the enjoyment of the participants and help teach the value of competition and good sportsmanship.
We field 5 levels of contact football to serve West Orange’s youth:
Peewee: 3rd & 4th graders

We also field a travel flag football team in the New Jersey Suburban Youth Football League which is open to all West Orange residents in grades K-2.
