SIGN UP FOR FLAG FOOTBALL - 1ST PRACTICE IS APRIL 1ST!!
WELCOME TO THE UPRISING
Welcome to the online home of the Lee Franconia Football League (LFFL) Wolverines! We are one of the Fairfax County Youth Football League (FCYFL) member club. You'll get news, information, schedules, rosters, game results, directions, and much more here. Check frequently for the latest information about our club.
The FCYFL voted to add 5 pounds to its Age/Weight Matrix at all weight classes except Ankle Biters a few years ago. This policy is still in place as of today. The measure was taken in an effort to ensure we continue to serve our community and the largest group of children possible, so the weights were changed to adjust to the growth in the size of children over the last several years. This is the first change in the matrix in over 10 years.
This Age and Weight Matrix is now OFFICIAL, and the new weights appear below. These weights will affect all seasons going forward.
* The minimum weight requirement for participating is 40lbs. Players must weigh at or greater than 40lbs by the official weigh-in (first weigh-in is August 13th).
