General information regarding age groups for the 2014-15 season:

For travel softball, teams participate in age groups defined in two-year increments. Cut-off dates run in conjunction with the calendar year (Jan 1—Dec 31). The following applies for the 2014-15 season:

10U: Includes players with birthdays in 2004 and 2005
12U: Includes players with birthdays in 2002 and 2003
14U: Includes players with birthdays in 2000 and 2001

 Example: For a girl turning 13 in Mar 2015, she would qualify for 12U as that is her actual age on
Jan 1st, 2015. Should she turn 13 prior to Jan 1st, 2015, she would have to try out for 14U. See our FAQ button in the left hand column for additional info.
