It's that time again.... You got it, time to register for football and cheerleading! We have a few exciting updates for the 2022 season as well as a handful of league changes.
A new age division restructure occurred this offseason in the WVJFC. Below are the new age divisions and weight structures for 2022.
6U DIVISON: For all athletes ages 5 and 6 years old. This division is instructional full contact 11 on 11 football. This means the time on the scoreboard will run, however, no wins or losses will be given as this division is focused solely on the fundamentals of the game.
8U DIVISION: For all athletes ages 7 & 8 years old. Full regulation PIAA football with the exception of no-rush punts.
10U DIVISION: For all athletes ages 9 & 10 years old. Full regulation PIAA football.
12U DIVISION: For all athletes ages 11 & 12 years old. Full regulation PIAA football. No restrictions on 12 year old's.
This new divisional format provides more opportunity for development of our athletes. New league weight structure is unlimited tackle to tackle football across the board. This means linemen in all age divisions are no longer bound to a specified weight requirement. Ball carriers are still restricted to a specific weight.
Additionally for cheerleading this new age restructure would only eliminate athletes ages 14. Below is the new divisional age groups.
7U CHEER: For athletes ages 5, 6, and 7. Athletes are required to participate in both sideline and competition cheer.
9U CHEER: For athletes ages 8 and 9. Athletes are required to participate in both sideline and competition cheer.
11U CHEER: For athletes ages 10 and 11. Athletes are required to participate in both sideline and competition cheer.
13U CHEER: For athletes ages 12 and 13. Athletes are required to participate in both sideline and competition cheer.
