The reasoning behind the age matrix is to ensure our players’ ages align with the USA League system, which enables charter teams to go and compete overseas in their age groups at tournaments such as the World Series. You may find that a child who has a birthday at the end of August and has just turned 12 is listed as League Age 13 and has to play up in the Under 15’s competition, which may seem unfair – but they’re usually competing against a lot of other kids in the same boat, which evens it out a bit.
