What Age Group Is My Player?

We use date of birth and school grade to determine the age group in which your player should be playing. Most of you on the charts below will show a match, e.g. a player born in July of 2005 and going into the 5th grade for the 2016-17 school year is 11U based on his date of birth and his school grade. However, some of you may see a discrepancy, e.g. that same player born in July of 2005 but going into the 6th grade in 2016-17 is 11U based on date of birth but 12U based on school grade. In this instance, we recommend that this player try out for the older age group (12U) in order to stay with his classmates.

So, as a general rule, if reading the charts below results in two different suggested age groups, your player should attend the tryout of the older age group.

UAJBA players that are currently "playing up" should continue on and try out with their current teammates unless you are choosing to repeat at the same age level.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?

The UAJBA program is a competitive travel baseball club comprised of UA residents that plays games and tournaments against other travel teams in Central Ohio and beyond. Age groups in 2017 will range from 8U to 14U (see charts above.)  At the younger ages, teams generally will play 30-35 games per season (40-45 games at the older ages) which includes a handful of weekend tournaments. Our goal as a program is to help players improve their baseball abilities while maintaining a positive and fun atmosphere.

Each UAJBA team has access to our indoor baseball facility twice per week during the winter which allows for continuous fundamental development.  Please note though that we encourage players in our program to play other sports during the baseball offseason. The regular season generally runs from early April to early July.
