PLAY WITH GRADE

No player will be permitted to play in an age group younger than their age no matter what their grade. A player born in August/September who is also in a higher grade than their date of birth would place them may request to play up to stay with their school grade group. But if the player decides to try out for SYSA Travel Soccer he/she must play with the correct age group, not grade. Unless the team has space for an underage player.
