About Grand Island Junior Vikings Football
Grand Island Junior Vikings Football is a youth football and cheerleading organization that has taught the values of sportsmanship and leadership to children between the ages of 7 and 13 since 1970. Grand Island is a suburb of Buffalo New York. There are three levels of play based on an age/weight formula to ensure that players compete against players of like size and age. This is the most common approach in junior football and has been for decades. Other leagues may not have weight restrictions and may offer more levels of play.
Here are our three levels of play, and the age and weight information:
|80lb Football||Cheerleading - Mini Vikings, Age 6-7|
|100lb Football||Cheerleading - Blue, Age 8-9|
|120lb Football||Cheerleading - Gold, Age 10-11|
|145lb Football||Cheerleading - White, Age 12-13|
To promote and encourage football and cheerleading on Grand Island; to provide a positive and enjoyable experience for all participants; to advance and enjoy the common appreciation and fellowship of football and cheerleading; to teach football skills in an environment where players compete with other players of comparable age and weight; to teach sportsmanship and leadership; and to give proper assistance and instruction.
