Who competes?

Because learning is a lifelong activity.  USFAFL encourages everyone to compete.  Divisions are by age and height.  Kids who are tall for their age will be moved into the older age bracket.  Height (and associated arm length) is an advantage.  Because this league seeks to bring generations together, there is a family division.  Whole families may enter as a single competitor, designating a different member to compete in each event, if they so choose.  Families will compete against other families.  For purposes of this contest, families will by defined by cohabitation and not legal status.  If you've taken the trash out more than once at that address, we'll assume you're part of the family.  Grand parents do not have to prove cohabitation to compete with the family.  Haven't they already done enough? 

Age brackets: 

Under 13 and under 62 inches tall

Over 13 or taller than 62 inches


Ages under 10 may prefer to compete in the family division. 

Maximum number of throwers: three.

Maximum family size: 6
