                                  FOOTBALL AGES and WEIGHTS

About the ages and weight - The CTYFL has found that age and maturity are the dominant factors as to how well a child competes in the game of football.   Our weight limits support most athletes in their given age or grade level, allowing more children to participate in sports.   A child progresses through the teams, staying 2 years on the same team along with his/her fellow school classmates.    There are really no older but lighter players taking key positions away from those of the proper age.  The CTYFL has aligned the make up of the teams to closely coincide with the school grade levels, and at the same time keep the age span on a team as tight as possible.  Below is the ages and weight limits of the teams.
