Dr. Jeff Webb who is an affiliate of the prestigious American Sports Medicine Institute had the following comments on the Mayo Clinic study:
As to why lighter players are not injured more frequently than heavier players, he cited the old formula that force = mass x velocity.
He stated that older players get hurt much more often because they run faster and hit harder.
Youth players who are larger don’t necessarily impact with more force if they aren’t fast and strong.
The number one determining factor of speed and strength is age maturity and not weight.
He concluded that lighter players would likely be safe within their own age group.
There are other reasons why unlimited classes are superior to weighted classes:
Many communities are too small to draw enough participants to field teams if restrictive weight categories are used.
We are in the middle of an obesity epidemic as referenced by our keynote speaker and too many kids who are overweight may have to sit out and not get much needed exercise resulting in health problems down the road.
Specific weight categories may force youth to drop weight in order to make the weight category and the result can be very unhealthy and even dangerous resulting in increased liability potential. On popular technique for dropping weight involves limiting the intake of fluids. This can lead to dehydration which is the number one cause of heat illness.
Weight categories that allow younger / heavier players to move up to an older age group can place the younger heavier athlete at increased risk of injury since the primary injury factors are age related based on speed and strength.
Weight categories that allow older / lighter to move down to a younger age group can place the younger age group participants at a greater risk due to the greater age related speed and strength of the older player.
American Youth Football, the largest youth football organization in the US, offer unlimited weight classes. Therefore, a standard has been set for their acceptability.
Age groupings and not weight groupings are the best predictor or injuries and safety in youth
