Fall Division Placement

Age

The fall season is when "league age" resets.  A player's league age is determined by his or her age on August 31 of the following calendar year.  Examples for fall season players:

 

  • Johnny Triple is currently seven and turns eight on February 21 next year.  He is league age "8" for both the Fall 2018 and Spring 2019 seasons.
  • Tina Fielder turns six on September 13 of this year.  She is league age "6" for both the Fall 2018 and Spring 2019 seasons.

 

 

 


 

 

Organization and Placement

 

The league is organized into divisions for the fall which roughly parallel those in the spring.  Because player participation is generally much smaller for the fall season, the structure of the divisions is slightly altered to guarantee there are enough teams for a competitive balance and to ensure that players of roughly-equal ages (and skills for upper divisions) are placed together.
