NEW 2018 AGE DIVISIONS:

After thoroughly vetting all options, the Bert Bell Conference and Oxford Golden Bears have concluded that aligning ages more appropriately has a greater importance than capping weights at each level.  Therefore, there will no longer be a weight limit for divisions, an age range will be used instead.  The new alignment also allows for players to grow at a natural pace without fear of needing to play "up" due to body type. Each level will still offer a Varsity and Junior Varsity structure to further enhance growth and development of players.

 

 

Newly aligned AGE-BASED only Divisions: 

  • FLAG FOOTBALL (Ages: 5 & 6 year olds)
  • NEW 2018 "ROOKIE" TACKLE 7 on 7 DIVISION  (Ages: 7 year olds) 

 

Our NEW Rookie Tackle Division serves as a bridge-game between flag football and 11-player tackle – and is a part of USA Football’s adoption of the United States Olympic Committee’s American Development Model (ADM).

AGE-BASED FOOTBALL

 

The Age-Based format represents a more natural progression and development for today's youth football players.  The Age-Based program will better align our teams with national trends and create a true feeder for High Schools.

 

WHAT IS AGE BASED FOOTBALL

 

Aged-Based football is an age and grade appropriate division without weight restrictions.  The participants will be together with the same kids they play baseball, basketball, lacrosse, etc.  The same kids attend class with and play together at home in their backyards with.  They will be with their peers at all times, in fact, they're with their peers from age 5 all the way to 8th grade and on to High School in our program.

 

WHY AGE BASED?

 

The Program is socially correct.  You have parity at every level and each child moves with their respective team.  With an Aged-Based program, you don't have a child playing one level this year and having to move up 2 levels and play with older kids because of a growth spurt.  Every child can play at the appropriate level with other kids their own age through our entire program.
