AGE DIVISIONS: BASED ON BIRTH DATE:
U12 - AUGUST 1, 2006 TO CURRENT DATE
U15 - AUGUST 1, 2003 TO JULY 31, 2006
U17 - AUGUST 1, 2001 TO JULY 31, 2003
U20 - AUGUST 1, 1998 TO JULY 31, 2001
Sometimes the birthdate cut offs can be confusing to figure out, especially if you have a bowler who is age 12, 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 12, 15, or 17 anytime after Aug 1, 2018. You stay in your age division of U12, U15, U17.
A bowler in the U20 division cannot turn 21 before July 31, 2019. If they turn 21 after July 31, 2019 they can bowl U20.
If a bowler turns 12, 15, or 17 anytime from Jan 1, 2018 - July 31, 2018 you move up division.
All other ages will fall in between U12, U15, 17, U20 divisions.
If your a bowler who turns 21 anytime prior to Aug 1, 2018, you are to old, and aged out this year.
