There are multiple reasons for having 7 weight divisions. First, there is less of a weight gap between players, which is safer. Some clubs have a 100 pound weight difference for a single team, because they have unlimited weights for some ages. Our weight difference is a maximum of 20 pounds after the ankle biter division. Another benefit is that with the smaller weight gap, the kids tend to stay (play) with the same kids year after year. OURS IS THE ONLY PROGRAM WHERE EVERYONE STARTS AND PLAYS THE ENTIRE GAME!
