These Age Determination revisions may results in some of our players being reassigned to a different Division than what they originally sign up for.

We anticipate this to only have a moderate impact on the experience of the kids as the underlying ages of the players will be similar. 

We appreciate all of your support as we implement these rule changes.

Our goal as a Board continues to be to provide the best possible learning/playing/fun experience possible.
