Age qualifications have proven to be difficult to enforce for Program participants because sometimes the grade is as important as the age of the youth in determining eligibility. Therefore there will use this criteria to determine age eligibility.
(KIA) 7 is minimum to 9 is maximum age
(AIL) 10 is minimum to 12 is maximum age
(TS) 13 is minimum and 17 is maximum age
1 – if the youth turns the minimum age by January 1st of the upcoming year, they can start the program in the fall at the start of the school year.
2 – if the youth exceeds the maximum age any time during the school year, they can remain in the program to the end of the school year.
If the youth turns the minimum age within a particular sports series, they can start that series at the beginning.
If the youth exceeds maximum age within a particular sports series, they can remain in that series until completion.
