IT’S ALL ABOUT TEAMWORK AT THE WCFL Western Communities Football League Has Been Providing High-Quality Programs For 30 Years BY MIKE MAY

The Western Communities Football League has been providing quality sports programs to residents of the Wellington area since 1992.Youngsters ages 4 to 15 play football and participate in a cheerleading program at the football fields at Village Park in Wellington. Because of COVID-19, it was all quiet last fall on the gridirons at Village Park, but now tackle football and cheerleading are back, and athletic life on Village Park’s football fields is returning to normal. Whether it’s tackle football or cheerleading, the WCFL’s goal is to teach each participant about the importance of

teamwork, good sportsmanship, self-esteem and trust while promoting healthy minds and healthy bodies, making friends, demonstrating self-control and learning to follow directions while having fun. According to WCFL President KC Jones, the mission is to promote the enjoyment and involvement of football for players, coaches, cheerleaders and parents. There are five tackle football age divisions within the WCFL. The youngest group is Ultimate, which is for ages 5 to 7. The per person weight limit is 85.9 pounds. The next group is Prep, which

is for ages 8 and 9, with a per person weight limit of 110.9 pounds.The third group is Varsity, which is for ages 11 and 12, with a per person weight limit of 125.9 pounds. The fourth group is Pro, which is for ages 12 and 13, with a per person weight limit of 145.9 pounds, but participants can play while weighing as much as 165 pounds. The oldest age group is High School Prep, which is for ages 14 and 15. There is no weight limit in that division. WCFL practices are always held on the Village Park football fields.To get involved, the per person registration cost is $299.99. wellington the magazine | september 2021 23
