New age brackets:

On November 13, 2016, YLM and it's member associations (including P.L.A.Y.) voted to adopt the US Lacrosse recommended age bracket guidelines for 2-year groupings.   Following a study conducted in 2015, US Lacrosse determined age brackets for 2-year groupings should have the even year as the max, based on several factors.  US Lacrosse piloted these changes in early 2016 and will be making them mandatory for all youth lacrosse associations by the end of 2017.

To align lacrosse associations, effective immediately, P.L.A.Y and YLM will be implementing the recommended age brackets.  For the current Winter and upcoming Summer lacrosse seasons the age brackets are as follows, based on birth date:

8U: Born 9/1/2008 or later  

10U: Born 9/1/2006 through 8/31/2008

12U: Born 9/1/2004 through 8/31/2006

14U: Born 9/1/2002 through 8/31/2004

14U: Born 6/1/2002 through 8/31/2002 and still in 8th grade (waiver required)
