2018 LEAGUE DIVISIONS OF PLAY

The Metro Youth Football League Divisions are designed to offer a competitive progression of age based play, with a strategic transition to grade based teams just before entering high school.  Divisions of play are based on player age until they reach 7th and 8th grade.  Player ages are determined by how old a player is on June 1 of the playing season. Under NO circumstances may a player be above grade 8. Player grade is defined by the completed grade of the prior school year plus 1.  Consistent with the recommendations of USAFootball, our League Divisions keep players of the same maturity level grouped together.  The details for each division of play are listed below.
