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:  2019 – 2005 = 14; the player is a U13 for the 2019-20 season
  • Example #2:  2019 – 2000 = 19; the player is U19 for the 2019-20 season
  • Example #3: 2020 – 2004 = 16; the player is U16 for the 2019-20 season


2019-20 Age Group based on year of birth:


Birth Year 2017-18 2018-19 2019-20
2010   U9 U10
2009 U9 U10 U11
2008 U10 U11 U12
2007 U11 U12 U13
2006 U12 U13 U14

2002 U16 U17 U18
2001 U17 U18 U19
2000 U18 U19

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.
