NEW AGE Based Player Segmentation - Boys & Girls Travel

CONNY Lacrosse has implemented a new Grade-Based Player Segmentation Policy in order to further the programs concern of fairness and safety with our players in addition to those who we compete against.The CONNY Lacrosse Board (GYL is a CONNY Board member) modified the proposed US Lacrosse Grade-Based Segmentation rules to its current policy below. It was unanimously approved by all 70 CONNY member towns including Darien, New Canaan and Rye. This policy will be implemented for the start of the 2017 season.

The change impacts Travel Players in grades 5-7. For those players, the age cutoff will be September 1st of the year preceding the season. Those born before September 1st will automatically play up one grade. Players who are “young in grade” have the option of staying with their own grade or can opt to play down a grade if they so choose. You must designate at the time of registration that you are playing down. 8th grade players have been offered an 18 month extended range for play. See below:

 

Grade              Birthday Range (Oldest – Youngest)

8                      March 1 2002 – August 31 2003

7                      September 1 2003 – August 31 2004

6                      September 1 2004 – August 31 2005

5                      September 1 2005 – August 31 2006

 

Players born before their oldest birthday range must play up this year based on the new policy.

Players born after their youngest birthday range have the option to play with their actual grade or with the grade below them.     

If your child is in K-4, your child will remain in their grade.
