AGE DETERMINIATION

  • FOR DISTRICT 1 (Johnson City Area) INVITATIONAL TOURNAMENTS (IE- ONE DAY TOURNAMENTS, WEEKEND TOURNAMENTS) - Playing Age runs January through Dec. Age is determined by how old the player was on 12/31 from the previous year (for example, if a player was 12 years old on 12/31/20 and turned 13 on 1/5/21..that player can play 12U through end of 2021 .  Teams do not HAVE to move up 9/1  however, we highly encourage all 2nd year teams to move up.   
  • FOR CHAMPIONSHIP LEVEL PLAY (IE-QUALIFIERS, STATE TOURNAMENTS, NATIONAL TOURNAMENTS, etc) -The player's age as of December 31, 2021 determines the age group they will play in the 2022 season which begins September 1, 2021.
