U10s Upwards information

Whilst the age rules allow players 2 years below the nominal age, our policy is that in U12s, players are held until they are at the right age – i.e. 11 in U12s, 12 in U13s etc. This is done specifically because of the physical changes that players go through at these ages. Our overwhelming experience is that at U12/13/14, the “growth spurt” that boys go through puts younger players and their team mates at a distinct disadvantage causing a number of problems. This policy is common throughout the Association.

Team sizes are set by the Association and are as follows:
