4th Grade - 7th Grade Dance!

NJAA will host a Fall dance for 4th - 7th grade kids at the Bahama Ruritan club on Friday November, 7th. Youth dances have been a tradition for years, and our kids always have a great time. In addition to our regular dance and DJ, we will be adding a photo booth for our kids.  It will definitely be fun.

We will need at least 10 volunteers to help chaperon this event.   Please email Chris Hawkes for more details.

About NJAA

 Our Mission       

The purpose of NJAA is to offer planned, supervised athletic programs where children can be given the opportunity to participate in physical exercise and be instructed in the basic fundamentals of teamwork and good sportsmanship, and to provide children in the community with an active and successful sports program.     

Who we are 

NJAA is an all  volunteer organization. It is composed of a Board of Directors who work with our coaches, assistant coaches and additional volunteers.  The Association is a nonprofit corporation formed pursuant to the North Carolina Nonprofit Corporation Act, codified in Chapter 55A of the North Carolina General Statutes Act. 

Fall Soccer 2014

North Durham Junior Athletic Association is happy to announce the opening of registration for our fall soccer season, providing a fun and safe environment for children ages 4-18.

The NJAA Soccer program provides an opportunity for young people in our community to develop healthy life and team skills through participation in a variety of sport activities, including soccer, basketball and cheerleading.  Our core values are teamwork, fairness and communication, and we work hard to nurture a positive environment for our participants.  

Our youngest players (U4s and U6s) learn ball handling skills and improve coordination with fun games and activities in a relaxed environment.  As the age divisions get older (U8, U10, U12, U14 and U18) practices become more structured with age appropriate drills focusing on field positioning, ball control, game strategy and scrimmages.   The focus is participation, team building, sportsmanship and fun while kids learn the game of soccer in a cooperative environment. For those who remain a kid at heart, NJAA also sponsors an adult soccer league for anyone 25 years or older.

Games and practices are local and are designed to fit into family schedules – practices are typically on week day evenings, and games are on Saturdays. 

NJAA provides an unbeatable value.  Led by our dedicated volunteer coaches, players develop into strong, confident individuals that appreciate teamwork, commitment and pride in being a part of the NJAA family. If either you or your child is interested in participating this fall, please click the Online Registration menu item above.
