NEW SANCTION YEAR STARTS 9/1/20

  • THE NEW SANCTION YEAR begins 9/1/20! All teams must re-sanction as of this date (sanction is good 9/1 through 8/31).
  •   The playing season runs Jan through Dec.  We encourage teams to move up in the fall, but it is NOT required. 
  • Playing age is determined by how old the player was on 12/31 from the previous year. Example, if your player was 12 on 12/31/20, she can still play 12U through the end of December. If your player was 13 on 12/31/20, she must play 14U. 
  • Team Name Changes During the Year - If your team sanctions under one name, then changes names during the year..you will need to re-sanction under the new team name.
**Exception: If you are playing in a fall National Qualifier you MUST play in the age group you will be in 2021.
