Official Weights and Ages for the PYFL

For the 2017 Season, the playing age of the player is their age as of September 1, 2017.  EXCEPT PLAY DOWNS: Play Downs use December 31, 2017 to determine league age in Bantam, Midget, Junior, and Senior Divisions. Put simply, your child can not play down (upper age) if their birthday falls between September 1, 2107 and December 31, 2017 even if they make weight.  SEE BELOW FOR PLAY DOWNS (rule change for 2016) A player must be at least 6 to be eligible for participation. The player’s weight and age determine the division they will play in as follows, see below table for more detail by age:
