BLA Age Segmentation Guidelines

Badgerland Lacrosse Association – 2019 Youth Boys’ Player Segmentation Guidance

Badgerland Lacrosse Association (BLA) is a member of US Lacrosse (USL). BLA supports USL’s recommendations and rules when feasible. Due to differences between established lacrosse associations on the east coast and newer lacrosse association such as BLA, we feel it appropriate for BLA to deviate from the USL Player Segmentation guidance as follows:

1. AGE SEGMENTS

A majority of BLA clubs are not large enough to support single-age segments, thus BLA will employ two-year age segments as follows: 6U, 8U, 10U, 12U and 14U (even year age group is the oldest).

2. AGE WAIVER (automatic)

a) BLA players whose birthday fall outside of the USL Age Grouping Table/Player
Segmentation window that wish to play with their school grade level may do so.

b) Players outside of the USL Age Grouping/Player Segmentation window and above
the corresponding school grade level may not play down.

c) Players on an Age Waiver and playing with their grade level may not also play with
their higher age level too.

d) BLA players may only play at one level per season.

NOTE: BLA is a recreational league. BLA players/teams that intend to participate in
games and tournaments outside of BLA should verify the age eligibility of each of their
players before doing so.
