The CYLA has permanently adopted US Lacrosse rules regarding age-based classification.
All players are required to provide official proof of birth date (birth certificate, passport, adoption papers, etc) before participating in sanctioned CYLA games.
We will set up teams at U15, U13, U12, U11, U10, U9, U8 and U7 for the 2016 Spring season. U7 players may be grouped with U8 players. All current 8th graders are eligible to play, regardless of birth date. No high school players are permitted to participate.
A player's eligibility for the 2016 Spring season is determined by his age on May 31, 2015.
For example, any player born on or after June 1, 2002 is eligible to play U13.
A player born on or before May 31, 2002 is not eligible to play U13 and must play U15.
Players who are "young" for their grade will still be permitted to play at that age level. For example, a 4th grader who is age-eligible for U9 (ie born after 6/1/2006) can still play U10.
NO PLAYER WILL BE PERMITTED TO "PLAY DOWN" IN AGE CLASSIFICATION AS PER CYLA RULES-- NO EXCEPTIONS.
2015 FALL & 2016 SPRING AGE CLASSIFICATIONS:
Born on or after
Max Stick Length
# U7 players must be born before 5/31/2009. U7 players will be grouped with U8 players for spring 2016 play.
