All players must be age appropriate. Age is determined by calendar year. Coaches must be prepared to present age verification at all times during the tournament. Failure to produce age verification (within a time period specified by the tournament committee) may result in the game in which the challenge took place being declared a forfeit and any other games played until verification is produced will be recorded as forfeits. If a team is challenged, and is found not to have a roster on file with the tournament committee, all games played up to the challenge may be declared forfeits.

Tournament staff may grant age waivers for players at their discretion- traditionally waivers are granted for U-11 & U-9 players born in the subject December.
