The Mission of The New Jersey Charter School Athletic League (NJCSAL) is to provide developing charter athletic programs with resources and support by operating, managing and facilitating interscholastic athletic competition in a fair and equitable manner while promoting the values of sportsmanship and strengthen the culture of New Jersey Charter School Athletics.
The majority of New Jersey Charter High Schools face challenges in their sports programs with budgets and expenses and are unfortunately not often offered the opportunities to participate in exciting tournaments with similarly talented teams.
In the Fall of 2015, passionate individuals who had a common vision for the New Jersey Charter School Athletics came up with a solution and incorporated NJCSAL. The New Jersey Charter School Athletic League is geared at promoting the Charter School Athletic movement.
The New Jersey Charter School Athletic League started with a pilot Boys’ Basketball League and Post Season Tournament. NJCSAL‘s vision is to develop and maintain this league by being a reliable resource for small Charter High School Athletic programs, evolving from its pilot season and expanding to uncharted territories. Our vision is to give youth opportunities to showcase their talents in safe, competitive and organized setting while providing an athletic outlet.
