The age determination
date is August 1st for
all age groups except the 5-6 Co-ed. For 5-6 Co-ed, a child must be
5 years old by December 1, 2014. No exceptions.
Parents may choose to
play their child 1 age
group up. For example, if a child is 8 on August 1st and
thus qualifies to play in the 7-8 age group, the parents can
choose instead to play the child in the 9-10 age group.
The 5-6 Co-ed age group
is more clinic oriented. Each session is split between practice
time and game time. For children who have played this format
previously and are ready for a full game, parents may choose the
7-8 age group. Just remember the size difference between a 6
year old and an 8 year old. Once you have selected an age
group, you can move your child to another age group only if
there is space available.
