If you are new to UAJBA, please read the information below titled "What Should I Expect?" and "What Age Group Is My Player?"

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 2018 will range from 8U to 15U (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. The regular season generally runs from early April to early July.

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 2006 and going into the 6th grade for the 2018-19 school year is 12U 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 2006 but going into the 7th grade in 2018-19 is 12U based on date of birth but 13U based on school grade. In this instance, we recommend that this player try out for the older age group (13U) 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.
