CYLA AGE ELIGIBILITY RULES

UPDATED DECEMBER 2014:  The CYLA (Colorado Youth Lacrosse Association) will continue to use June 1st as the cutoff date for age-based classification.  

The CYLA has permanently adopted US Lacrosse rules regarding age-based classification.  

Players in the same grade will generally be grouped together, provided that they meet the June 1 birth date cutoff for that age group.  All players are required to provide official proof of birth date (birth certificate, passport, adoption papers, etc) before participating in sanctioned CYLA games. 

Click here to view official US Lacrosse Age & Eligibility Guidelines. 

We will set up groups and teams at U15, U13, U12, U11, U10, U9, U8 for the 2015 Spring seasons.  All current 8th graders are eligible to play, regardless of birthdate.  No high school players are permitted to participate.

A player's eligibility for the 2015 Spring season is determined by his age on May 31, 2014.  

  • For example, any player born on or after June 1, 2001 is eligible to play U13.
  • A player born on May 31, 2001 is not eligible to play U13 and must play U15. 
  • In general, we will group players on the basis of "Grade with an Age Cutoff."  This means that players in the same grade will be grouped on teams at the same age level, provided that they meet the June 1st cutoff date.
  • Players who are "young" for their grade will still be permitted to play at that age level.  For example, a 4th grader who is age-eligible for U9 (ie born after 6/1/2005) can still play U10. 

NO PLAYER WILL BE PERMITTED TO "PLAY DOWN" AN AGE CLASSIFICATION AS PER CYLA RULES-- NO EXCEPTIONS.
