Each conference is affiliated with American Youth Football in the All American Division which is Age Based / Age Protected.

What is the All American Division?

  • The All American Division is an age-based program that fosters participants of similar ages and grades to play together. This will provide consistency and continuity for the players and teams up to 14 years of age and through the 8th grade. It is our belief that this change will strengthen our overall football program.
How are teams set up?
Teams are age protected without weight restrictions. The participants of this division will be together with the same children they play baseball, basketball, soccer, lacrosse, etc. The same children they attend class with and play together at home in their back yards with.
