The varsity division is primarily for boys that are 13-14 years old with no maximum weight limits. Players over the 150 lb or 135 lb weight limits depending on age are considered "red stripers" and must play on the line. MVYFL varsity games are the last step before entering the high school program. Each quarter is 8 minutes in length and the games are regulated by High School officials. First year players are welcome to join the team and historically have become impact players. For our returning players and those moving up from JV, the varsity level prepares them mentally and physically for the next step of their football careers.
