AGE DIVISIONS: BASED ON BIRTH DATE:                                                                                                

    U15 - May 16,  2004 TO JULY 31,  2007

    U17 - May 16,  2002 TO JULY 31,  2004                 

    U20 - May 16,  1999 TO JULY 31,  2002    


Sometimes the birthdate cut offs can be confusing to figure out, especially if you have a bowler who is age 15, 17, 20. 

I have developed this to help you better understand, if you still need help making sure your in the correct division.  

If a bowler turns 15, or 17 between May 16,2019 and December 31st 2019, They must move to the next division.

A bowler in the U20 division cannot turn 21 before July 31, 2020.

If a bowler turns 15, or 17 anytime from Jan 1, 2020  - July 31, 2020 you stay in your division.

All other ages will fall in between U15, 17, U20 divisions.

If your a bowler who turns 21 anytime prior to July 31, 2020, you are to old, and aged out this year.
