What age group is my child in?
The age grouping is done by birthdate. Children are grouped as close to the school year calendar as we can to attempt to keep kids together by their grade. For example a child that turns 10 between Aug. 1 and the next August would be in U10 for both the fall and spring seasons even if their birthday occurs between the fall and spring seasons. A list of age groups is available here.
Can my child play in a different age group?
Players with August or September birthdates are allowed to “play up” to the next age group in order to keep them with their grade level peers. All other requests must be approved by the Deputy Commissioner or Commissioner. In order to "play up", you must make the request on your registration or via email.
