NCAFA ‘Age Realignment’ for 2017

Posted by Cumberland Panthers Football Club on Dec 19 2016 at 06:04AM PST in 2014

Effective for the 2017 season, NCAFA tackle football programs will offer programs region-wide with new age groupings.

The move introduces the option for seven year olds to formally join our programs in 2017 while putting more focus on our developmental age groups.
The Cumberland Panthers will be keeping our Mites program alive for the 6 & 7 year olds within our program. The Panthers tyke team will consist of 8 & 9 year olds.

League wide the Tyke level will now consist of 7-9 year olds (Panthers will be 8-9, 7 year olds will remain at Mites); Mosquito will be 10-11 year olds; Pee Wee will be 12-13 year olds; Bantam 14-15 year olds and Midget will consist of 16-18 year olds.

To clarify (if player born in year below, they will be a specific level)
Mite (2010-2011)
Tyke (2008-2009)
Mosquito (2006-2007)
Peewee (2004-2005)
Bantam (2002-2003)

On the announcement, Steve Dean (NCAFA President) stated, “Our goal is always to serve our community while growing the great sport of football. We know that this re-alignment of ages will position NCAFA to continue our proud and respected history for years to come. The change aligns with Football Canada direction and opens the doors to exciting opportunities…"
