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.

A child's age on July 31 2022 is his/her age for the season.


There are Seven Divisions of play, all determined by a strict age/weight scale to ensure safe and balanced competition.

  
A child's age on July 31 2020 is his/her age for the season. A player may gain 1 pound per week after the second game, up to a maximum of 5 pounds.
*The asterisked (*) provisions in each division allow the so-called "older but lighter" player to also qualify. The last year of eligibility falls under more stringent weight restrictions, per above.
