WHAT AGE AND WEIGHT DO YOU HAVE TO BE TO PLAY TACKLE FOOTBALL?
Players will be weighed in at registration in the spring and again at the team meeting in the fall. If a player is five or more pounds over the weight limit for his division as of the first practice, he will move up to the next division and be placed on another team. The asterisked(*) provisions in each division allow the ‘older/lighter’ player to qualify for that division. The last year of eligibility falls under more stringent weight restrictions as designated below. A child’s age on July 31st is his/her age for the season. A player may gain 1 pound on weeks 2, 4, 6 and 8 for a total of 4 pounds.
