A player’s true age group is most simply understood with reference to the birthday reached during the playing year. A player turning 11 during the current calendar year is an Under 11, one turning 13 is an Under 13, etc.
Dispensation may be granted to play up a year above one’s true age group. This is most often the case for someone to play in the same team as his or her school year group. Contact the age coordinator to discuss the issue if you would like your child to play up an age group.
Girls playing in mixed-teams may also play one age group younger than their true age group.
