AAYFA League Age, Weight/Weigh-in, and Recruiting Policies Update

1. AGE Participation Rule:

  • If you are born after Sept 1st, you can play down one weight class only if you can make weight. 


2.  Weight Rule:

  • After making weight you will only be allowed 10lbs. to gain.
  •  5lbs during regular season and 5lbs during playoffs

3.  Weigh-in Rule

  • You will get three chances to make weight this year. We will have two in Aug and one late one in Sept. If you miss the first two you can go to the third one, however anyone who misses weight at the first two has to sit out until the third game if you make it at the third weigh-in. This will eliminate all the complaint from the parents and coaches about not knowing you had only two chances. 


4. Recruiting Policy 
If a participant in our County leagues wants to change organizations (by sport) from the previous season, a youth player release form from the previous organization is required and must be attached to the youth player’s contract. Our youth player contract is not valid without this release (youth player release forms can be downloaded from our website).

o  Organizations/coaches that fail to follow this policy may be subject to disciplinary action to include probation and/or suspension.
o  Organizations/coaches who improperly recruit may be subject to disciplinary action to include probation and/or suspension.
