*New USA Softball Age Divisions starting Fall '23 - A bit confusing…...
Starting Fall 2023 (and continuing through Spring ‘24 and beyond), USA Softball has changed how age divisions will work. They shifted the age division cut-off from Jan 1st back to Sept 1st, which means some players may now be eligible to “stay down” to a younger age division if so desired. MVLAGS has always had a firm no “playing up” policy, but its doesn’t seem fair to require players who have Sept - Dec birthdays to stay down when many of their friends and previous “year” players move up. As such a recent Board meeting, it was approved to allow players to move with their current age year and friends if so desired. This is a little complicated and definitely creates some headaches for our league management, but we’ll figure it out. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Below shows now default USA Softball age divisions:
6U - Sept ‘16 - Aug ‘18 birthdays (typically Kindergarten-1st graders)
8U - Sept ‘14 - Aug ‘16 birthdays (typically 2nd-3rd graders)
10U - Sept ‘12 - Aug ‘14 birthdays (typically 4th-5th graders)
12U - Sept ‘10 - Aug ‘12 birthdays (typically 6th--7th graders)
14U - Sept ‘08 - Aug ‘10 birthdays (typically 8th-9th graders)
E.g. A player with Sept 15th birthday who was an “older 10U” in ‘22-’23 has the option to stay down to play a 3rd year of 10U OR move to become a “younger 12U” starting this Fall
