AGE-BASED PROGRAM:  Westport Lacrosse teams are age-based according to the following chart:

CONNY Grade / Birth Date Ranges

CONNY

Division

Grade

Birth Date Range

Age Group

Senior

8

Born 3/1/2004 through 8/31/2005

14U

7

Born 9/1/2005 through 8/31/2006

13U

Junior

Born 9/1/2007 through 8/31/2008

11U

 

Notes:

  • Children YOUNGER than the birth dates with their grade have a choice to play with their grade or play with the younger grade.  The child must elect which team they are trying out for PRIOR to tryouts and stay with that group for the season.

  • Children OLDER than the birth dates for their grade must play in the grade or age group their birthdate is linked to (play up).  

  • Children in grade K-4 play with their grade.

  • OLDER children in 8th grade are given six extra months to play in the program because they cannot play high school.  Children older than the 3/1/2004 cut off and in 8th grade may petition Westport PAL and CONNY if they wish to play.

  • Some areas of the Westport program will continue to have mixed grade level teams.  These teams are required to play teams in their division. For example, a 5/6 grade team can play any team in the Junior Division.   As is always the case, scheduling does consider the age, size and ability of our teams when selecting appropriate games.

  • Westport does not allow players to play in an older birth date range.
