Frequently Asked Questions
Who will my child play with?
Your son can form his own team - or simply register as a free agent. Those children that want to play with the kids in their grade/school will be guaranteed to do so as long as they meet the age requirements listed below.I
Is there a weight limit?
Teams that compete in American Youth Football, including the Academy, align players within their age group, rather than by weight. This enables kids to stay within their own age group rather than play against older, more athletically developed players. While each kid grows differently, athletic ability, mental and physical toughness, and body control differ significantly between age groups and can create an unfair advantage, regardless of size.
