Birth Year Registration

A lot has been made and said and the actual language is confusing.  To simplify the discussion:  The only group of players affected are those born between 8/1 and 12/31 who for this one year skip one rung on the division ladder.  As an example, a player born in September falls into that group, moving from one year in U10 (or as a U09) to first year U12 (as a U11).
While this may seem arbitrary, so was the prior cutoff.  Parents with children born in July were up a division where those born August 1 couldn’t play with their classmates and were down a division. But with 5 months of children making this move (and those 5 months of older children moving out of that division) should help provide a safe transition since there should be a balance of players of each age.
Change is always scary.  Regions should ensure the age of the players are balanced across the teams this Fall.
