Tournament Rules

Lititz Summer Showcase Age Group Chart

 

To calculate the proper year for a player, take the ending year of the seasonal year and subtract the player’s birth year.

  • Example #1: 2017 – 2002 = 15;  the player is a U15 for the 2016-17 season
  • Example #2: 2017 – 2005 = 12;  the player is a U12 for the 2016-17 season
  • Example #3: 2018 – 1999 = 19;  the player is U19 for the 2017-18 season

Age Group based on year of birth:

1998 – U19
1999 – U18
2000 – U17
2001 – U16
2002 – U15
2003 – U14
2004 – U13
2005 – U12
2006 – U11
2007 – U10
2008 – U9

These birth years are set by USYSA and EPYSA, the State Association and all team must abide by these guidelines.

While it is possible to have a team play “up” to a higher age group with permission from the tournament, it is never allowed to play “down” to a younger age group. The age of a team is based upon the date of birth of the oldest player.
