Playing Up Policy

Play-Up Policy

If your appropriate age group is U10 through U14, you may play up one age level. A player must be determined by the independent evaluators to be in the top five of the age group they are trying out for. No more than five players may play up on any one team. Once a player reaches high school (U15 and above), the play-up restrictions are lifted, and the player merely has to be selected in the top 18 players. There are no play-ups for U09.

Rules for Playing Up

  • If you intend to "play up", you must attend the first session of your defined age group (i.e., your calendar birth year) as well as the first tryout session for your desired age group.
  • Notify the registrar prior to tryouts via email and at check-in if you are intending to try playing up and if you would like to be considered for your current birth year team as well.
