FOOTBALL DIVISIONS
Sun Devil Football sponsors football teams at several different divisions based on AGE not weight.  The youngest levels are the ROOKIE Division (6U – 5 and 6 Year Olds).  The SCEYFL – AAU is a non-weight restricted conference, designed to allow each player to compete against peers of his/her own age group. Unlike many of the other conferences, in the SCEYFL there is no need for “sweat boxes,” starvation diets, or players forced to play up in older age divisions. The objective in the SCEYFL is to have each participant compete against peers that are generally with the same mental status and physical ability.

Age is determined by reference to AUGUST 1st of each year.  By way of example, a player who will turn 13 in August is treated as a 12 year old for football purposes.  “Football Ages” are as of July 31st and whatever age your child will be on the date will be his / her age for the season.

Age is “Football Age;” i.e. the players age at July 31, 2017
