Play Up Policy

For players trying out for an older team, for player safety we have the following guideline:

  • For U9 and U12 teams - player must place in the top 5 of age group "up".
  • For U13 through U14 teams - player must place in the top half of age group "up" of the total number of players taken onto a team.
  • For U15 through U19 teams - dependent on individual team needs, at coach's discretion.

NOTE: If you plan to tryout for an older age group, you will be able to note that on the registration HOWEVER it is advised you also attend at least one tryout session at your true age.

“Special circumstances may exist that would warrant additional consideration. Any such consideration would be by both the Director of Coaching and Director of Operations, and would not set precedent for other situations or future circumstances".
