Congratulations to the Incoming Class of 2021

On June 4, 2017 the USNA NJ Parents Club hosted the annual Welcome Aboard Picnic at the Forsgate Country Club in Monroe Township .

In attendance were 26 Plebes and their families who are about to start the Journey of a Lifetime. Additionally there were Alumni, Alumni Parents, Blue and Gold Officers and members of the Board of Directors offering support and guidance welcoming all to their Newest Family. The Navy Family. 


Our club tailgates at all Navy home football games.

Join the fun! 

Our first 2017 home game: Saturday September 9th   vs   Tulane   3:30 PM.

Simply stated, NJ hosts hundreds of Midshipmen at a mega-tailgate party after every Navy home football game.  We welcome parents traveling from other states to join us.  If you are a parent from another State planning to attend a Navy football game, and would like to join us in hosting our Mids please contact Steve Wexler, our Tailgate Chairperson, at (732)349-1855 to arrange to join us.  

Don't have time to cook for tailgates?  Consider a donation to the USNA Parents' Club of New Jersey. For $50/tray (two for $90) NJ Parents' Club will include your name and your message for the Mids to read a they pass through our line.  If you give us a week's notice, we will even cook your  favorite recipe for them (within reason and buget).  Just email your recipe to  and let us know how much you donated ($60/tray min. for cooking your recipe).  The USNA Parents' Club of New Jersey is a 501(c)(3)  charitable organization and all proceeds go to the well being and support of the brigade. 

Who?  Our NJ parents and their friends and family (and parents visiting from faraway states).  We make our own NJ home-cooked meals.  We serve all Mids - whether they are from NJ or Toledo, Ohio, because on game day all Mids are from NJ, whether they know it or not.  Send your mid an e-mail and tell him/her to meet you after the game at the tailgate.  Tell him to bring his/her friends and roommates.  They have most likely heard about the NJ tailgater, but... just in case!

What?  You, your families, your friends, make great homemade NJ food and bring it down game day.  We need everyone's help to cook food, set up beforehand, help serve the Mids and/or help clean-up and re-load the trailer after the tailgater.  

Where?   Outside gate D, on the Blue side of the stadium, the first tailgate beyond Admirals Row parking. We generally have someone in the lot by 9AM on game day. 

When?  After every Navy Home Game.  You can come early, or before the game to help set-up, or you can help out after half-time to get things heated; you can help serve our hungry Mids immediately after the game, or you can stick around after to help with the clean-up.  You need not commit to the entire process, we'd love to have your help at any time.

Why?  Because NJ loves ALL Midshipmen.  We want to them to know that we care about them and appreciate the sacrifices they are making on behalf of our country.  We want our members to be great ambassadors of our wonderful state.  Most of us live less than a 3-hour drive from USNA.  Getting up early to cook several trays of great home cooked food, driving 3 hours to Annapolis, serving hundreds of midshipmen (pinching a cheek or two and doling out liberal hugs, while we're at it) is something we can do with hardly a sacrifice.  So jump onboard, lend a hand, make your best meal, bake those fabulous cookies.  Show all of our midshipmen that NJ LOVES OUR MIDS!

How?  We have our own club trailer, tables, canopies, chafing dishes and the biggest grill you've ever seen.  Parents holding season tickets for Navy football have parking passes for stadium parking.  Everyone arriving afterwards parks in nearby stadium parking and begins the tailgate set-up process. Those without season tickets must park offsite.
