*How old does my child need to be to participate? We accept all players between the ages of 8 to 12 years old. Players age is determined by their age as of November 1, 2015. We do not accept any seventh grade players.
*How do I know what program my child will play for? Player eligibility is determined by the school district that the child is enrolled in. There are occasional circumstances that can be addressed by the NCWYF board of directors to resolve any legitimate request from a parent.
*How many different age groups are there within NCW Youth Football? NCWYF has (2) different divisions. All 8 and 9 year olds and some 10 year olds will play in the Bantam Division. Some 10, and all 11 and 12 year olds will play in the Junior Division.
* How does NCW Youth Football determine the division my child will play in? NCWYF is based by age, not weight. It is our opinion that player safety is more easily attained when children are competing with and against players of the same level of social development.
