Weigh in procedures:
Each parent or guardian shall have a completed registration form with payment or evidence of payment on file and a copy of the child’s birth certificate to be presented to the WFL Board prior to the child’s weigh-in.
PLEASE HAVE YOUR REGISTRATION FORM FILLED OUT COMPLETELY AND READY TO GO WHEN YOU ARRIVE.
Two leagues are scheduled to weigh-in at the same time. The parents shall assemble their child according to which league they will participate in. Each child who is close to the skill position weight limit may immediately strip down to shorts prior to stepping on the scale. All players will only be weighed once in accordance to the WFL rules. Two WFL Board members must verify the child’s weight. Parents are allowed to view the official weight at the weigh in. After the player is weighed and registration completed, the players and parents should leave the weigh-in area due to the number of people and the limited parking space at the center.
ALL WEIGH –INS ARE FINAL WHEN THE CHILD STEPS ON THE SCALE AND THE WEIGHT IS READ AND RECORDED BY A BOARD MEMBER AND INITIALED BY TWO OR MORE BOARD MEMBERS!
According to WFL rules: If a tackle player's weight is not officially recorded by the end of the last day of registrations they will NOT be able to play a skilled position and run the ball (see rules for details). They will automatically be assigned a 90 series jersey number - regardless of their actual weight.
