Little League Baseball is changing their age cut-offs in 2018. While we do not follow Little League rules, the age guidelines will affect many other organizations throughout the state. Suburban Athletics will not make any changes to their cut-off deadlines.

League AGE levels for Evaluation process:

Suburban Athletics, Inc. league ​age​ determination date for 2018 are as follows:

 T-Ball : Boys & Girls ages 5 through 6 on or before April 30, 2018

Boys League 7-8 : Boys ages 7-8 on or before April 30, 2018 (will not need to attend evaluations)

Boys League 9-10: Boys ages 9-10 on or before April 30, 2018 (exceptions will be made if 8 years old and entering 3rd grade)*

Boys League 11-12 : Boys ages 11-12 on or before April 30, 2018 (exceptions will be made if 10 years old and entering 5th grade)**
 
Players are expected to play within their age bracket. However, exceptions may be made for the following:
 
* Consideration for any player that will be 8 on or before the date above, who would like to attempt to “play up” in the  Girls/Boys 9/10 league  will be considered only if pairing with a sibling already playing in the next level they want to play up in, as long as safety is not an issue. Safety concerns will be addressed by the head coach and baseball commissioner. If a child’s safety at the level they are playing up in are a concern, the level of their age will be the alternative.

In any situation where a  player wants to “play up” in a level higher than their age (above), they MUST participate in the try-out to be evaluated.  Please contact Jack Taschner (Baseball Commissioner)
