2019 SP BASEBALL Tournament Team Age Levels
***Softball tournament teams remain using calendar year birth dates when determining age

Please read the next few paragraphs in their entirety

After much research and discussion, SPYBAS has decided to go with the following birth date ranges to determine our 2019 tournament team ages. When researching what other organizations were doing, we noted that most were still going with the old April 30th Little League age determination date. That is, whatever age the child is as of April 30 of this year, determines their tournament age. While Little League has changed that age determination date to August 31, other organizations such as Cal Ripken and Babe Ruth continue to use the April 30 date.

While for 2019, SPYBAS will mainly stick with that April 30 age determination date, we (as with some other communities) will start to phase in the August 31 date beginning with this year’s 8U age group. You will notice that in the birth date ranges below. That new age determination will follow this group, along with any others to follow them, for their tournament careers with SPYBAS. For 2020 then, both 8U and 9U will use the August 31 age determination date. For 2021, 8U, 9U and 10U will use the August 31 age determination date.

***One caveat to this; we will reproach this topic each season to determine if more and more tournaments are moving to the August 31 age determination date. If it is found to be detrimental to the tournaments available for SPYBAS teams to participate in, we will choose to do an immediate cut-over to the August 31 determination date, therefore eliminating the phased approach mentioned above.
