Age/Weight Chart


The Northwest Junior Football League (NJFL) is an age and weight restricted league and uses the following table to assign players to teams:

A player's "League Age" is their age as of July 31st.

To determine your child's team, take his age as of the next upcoming July 31st and go across until you find the highest weight that he is currently under. For example; if your child is 12 years old as of next July 31st and weighs 125 pounds, he would register for the Junior team.
