IMPORTANT!!! Age Cutoff Questions Answered!!!

AGE CUTOFF DATES - Softball uses January 1 and Baseball uses September 1. Our system will automatically place your child in the correct division. For baseball: if your child has a summer birthday, this may result in what appears to be your child "playing up". That is not the case, consider your child's age on September 1, 2020 and that is the division he/she will play baseball in this year. 

                The age cutoff dates are pushed down to us from the county. Two years ago the change was made from a spring cutoff to the current 9/1 date. Depending on the age of your child, you may not have been effected until this year. The change results in kids being grouped together by their school year. For example, in our 7/8 division, the old cutoff had a mix of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders. Under the current 9/1 cutoff that same age group will be 1st and 2nd graders pushing the 3rd graders to play with 4th graders in the 9/10 division. While at first glance it may appear that your child is "playing up", he/she is actually playing with peers in the same grade.
