Can my child participate in a different age/grade group than what his/her actual age/grade is?

A child may "play up" a level but may not "play down". It is highly recommended that a child play with their actual age/grade group, especially in tackle. A player may only play up 1 age/grade group. The registration system will not allow you to select an older grade group. Please mark in the comments which grade group that you want your child to play up in. We will adjust the registration to the correct group.
