*** AGE GROUPS BY DIVISION EXPLAINED ***
We are definitely not trying to insult anyone’s intelligence but there has been a bit of confusion about the division name changes, and what age groups are in what divisions.
Why the name change?
Both locally and nationally the age grouping is the more widely used format. Division names such as Bantam, Colt, Junior, differ by region.
The “U” following the age stands for “Under”
League Age – Players age as of May 1st of a given season
As an example the 6U Division is for players “6 years and under” based on the players “League Age”.
If a player’s 7th Birthday falls after May 1st, they can play in the 6U Division.
If they turn 7 prior to may 1st, they must play in the 8U (8 and under) division
This same scenario plays out through all divisions.
Divisions – Ages:
6U – 5 and 6 year olds
8U – 7 and 8 year olds
10U – 9 and 10 year olds
12U – 11 and 12 year olds – Firelands Inter-League (FIB) – Players MUST attend Norwalk City Schools or St. Paul unless their city does not have a team in the FIB – This is a rule for the FIB
14U – 13 and 14 year olds – FIB – Players MUST attend Norwalk City Schools or St. Paul unless their city does not have a team in the FIB – This is a rule for the FIB
17U – 15, 16, and 17 year olds
Again, all age groups are based on their “League Age”
