Birth Year and Season Matrix

When determining the age group for a season, the year the season ends should be used for determining the birth year. Also note that the format “U followed by age” really means that age and younger.

2003 Birth Year: If going into 8th Grade, your tryout level is U14/15. If going into High School, then U16 would be your tryout level.
