August 24, 2019 - New York Metropolitan / NJ District AAU Football League - The league has placed an emphasis on fair play and player age certification this year by employing the services of a third party age verification system.

"We will not tolerate cheating or ineligible players in this league. It's not about wins and losses. It's about the safety of the children playing in our league and with AAU football. We have a service that can facilitate this endeavor and we are happy with their results thus far, as we have already uncovered one organization with ineligible players and parted ways with them."
