2020-2021 OVR Age Definitions

At A2 East, all Regional teams will use Grade Level definition for ages where required.  Some American teams could use “traditional” or “true age” level definitions since this is required for larger, national tournaments. Any player wishing to be considered for an American team that would only qualify for that age group based on the Grade level definition should note that in their registration entry form. For further details on age level definitions, refer to the OVR age definition page. A2 has also created an FAQ page to explain some of the nuances regarding age levels in a little more detail.

*Note that special rules apply for “older” 17U/18U players that are not listed here.
