2021-2022 USAV AGE DEFINITION

How do I determine my child's age for the 2021-2022 season?

Follow your child's birth month to the birth year in the chart below to determine the age level. 
*If your child's age level is different than their grade level, it is up to you if you want them to tryout to play "up" with their grade level.  To determine what age level your child should play, you should play with your grade for recruiting purposes (an age group up).  If you're concerned with your child's skill level and to have the highest chance to make a team, you should choose to play in their age level.  Please indicate that in the comments section of the tryout registration.
