Ages & Weights

Leagues have options with how to structure their program. While leagues can continue the current structure where a player is placed in a division based on his or her age and weight they may also instead choose to register players based on age only. Currently, an estimated 75-80% of youth football nationally follows an age-only structure.

AGE-WEIGHT DIVISIONS:

There are Six Divisions of play, all determined by an age/weight scale.
