- U8 (2013, 2014) – 5-Man Flag is a five on five no-contact football game that runs in the VMFL from late August to late October every year. Each team comprises of around 7-11 players and 1 game is played every Sunday during the season. This age group also participates in a few mini tournaments during the season.
- Atom (2011, 2012) – 9-man Flag. Players will wear protective football equipment and FLAGS on the hips. Blocking will be allowed at the line of scrimmage. There will be no tackling. The ball carrier whose flag is removed by defensive player will be considered tackled.
- Peewee (2009, 2010) – This will be either 9man or 12man with standard Canadian football rules. This division is for 10 and 11 years. Players at this level start to learn greater details of how to play the game of football and learn more detailed techniques.
- Junior Bantam (2007, 2008) – As with Peewee this division plays 12man or 9man depending on number of registered players. Players in this level are 12 and 13 years old. Here the passing game begins to develop along with the learning of schemes and bigger playbooks.
- Bantam (2005, 2006) – For players 14 and 15 years old. As with the other divisions, the game may be 12man or 9man depending on registration. Players will be challenged by their coaches to see translate the practices to game success.
- Midget ( 2002, 2003,2004) – The final division in Community Football is for the 16, 17 and 18 year olds. Each team is limited to how many 18 year old players they can have on their roster but for most associations that is not an issue. By allowing the senior players a chance to stay in community football it gives these kids another avenue of football before they move on to the next phase of their lives. The Midget level has produce some of the most exciting football including many of the last VMFL finals and Provincial games.
