BOYS AGE SEGMENTATION and ELIGIBILITY

 

Boys STMA Lacrosse Association participants,

We wanted to take a moment and let you know of some recent changes that both US Lacrosse and GNLL have made as it relates to Boys Age Segmentation and Eligibility starting this September 2016.  

Key Takeaways:

  1. Move to 12-month segmentations for leagues. (e.g. U7, U8, U9, U10)
    1. http://www.uslacrosse.org/participants/players/player-segmentation.aspx
    2. http://www.uslacrosse.org/multimedia-center/press-releases-news/postid/1147/us-lacrosse-adopts-new-player-segmentation-policy.aspx
  2. New Year will start September 1, 2016 for the age segmentation rules.
    1. The playing season was firmly defined as September 1 through August 31 of each year to help ensure consistency.
  3. If two age groups are combined, the even year age should be the maximum age for the paired segment. (e.g. 8U, 10U, 12U, 14U).
  4. Age to precede the “U” when naming divisions (e.g. 8U, 9U, 10U)
  5. USL(US LACROSSE) made these changes for three reasons:
    1.  Player safety
    2.  Competitive fairness
    3.  Consistent experience for participants
  6. STMA Lacrosse Association will adapt to these new age segmentations as early as the FALL 2016 season to keep in line with GNLL following the same age segmentations.

We ask that you read through the supporting documentation below for more thorough and detailed information.  Please reference the websites listed under number 1 of this announcement for more information about the age segmentation and eligibility changes from USL.  We encourage you to reach out to us should you have any questions or concerns, this is new for us too, so we may not have the answers, but we will do our best to find the answers.
