 Age Group Calculations for State Championships

Tee-Ball age group eligibility is based on 30 June each year; however Carine (and the wider competition) use the 30 June before the season starts i.e. 30 June 2015 whereas TBAWA use 30 June after the season finishes i.e. 30 June 2016. This means a player may, for example, play in an under 9’s competition at Carine but be under 10’s when playing states.

TBAWA have an age calculator for the 2016 State Championships available on their website (this is an Excel file where you can enter your child’s date of birth on the relevant tab to confirm the age group they are eligible for at the 2016 State Championships.)

If your child is attending tryouts, please use the above calculator to confirm which age group they are eligible for prior to arrival.

Below is an illustration of how age groups are calculated for State Championships.

  • Player born July 2006 and is currently 9 years old.
  • For Carine purposes, the player was under 9 on 30 June 2015 and therefore plays the 2015/16 season at Carine in the under 9 age group.
  • For State Championship purposes, the player is already 9 on 30 June 2016 and therefore plays 2015/16 State Championships in the under 10 age group.
