Age Groups

U11’s must be under 11 on 31st August 2017 and are usually in Y5 and Y6
at school.
U13’s must be under 13 on the above date and are usually in Y7 and 8
U15’s must be under 15 on the above date and are usually in Y9 and Y10
U17’s must be under 17 on the above date and are usually in Y11 and Y12
Once athletes reach the upper 6th/Y13 they are too old for the league.
Hence you will have some children becoming 11, 13, 15 or 17 in the months leading up to Xmas. They are still in the U11,13,15,17, age groups however as we take August 31st as the cut-off date. This stops athletes moving between age groups during the season. Please note Year 4’s are too young to compete in the U11 age group.  Athletes must have reached 9 on 31st August 2017 and therefore be in Y5 in order to compete in the league.
