Lake Highlands League President:
Birth Year Registration
We are aware that an updated and revised Age Chart for Birth Year Registration has been approved and released by the Federation. We are meeting to review these changes and a decision will be posted soon. Thank you for your patience.

Dear Mr. LHL president, what is taking so long in deciding these changes?

It depends...

The latest word that I heard, is that for LHGCL, the pendulum has swung back the other direction, and now the default will be that the byes for next year will move with the oldest players on the team (with younger players being allowed to "play up"), meaning that the league rules will not mandate that teams have to break up.  I've also heard that LHGCL is considering giving teams the option to keep the bye with the youngest players on the team, if that is what the team requests.  I am hearing that the final decision will likely be published sometime this month.

Haven't heard anything about what PPL or APL are planning to do.

However, regardless of what the leagues decide to do, your DD's club and/or coach could still decide to make the team calendar year "pure", and if it's an LHGCL team that decides to do this and request that the bye stays with the younger players, any players that now fall into the older CY age group would have to go find a new team. drunken drunken drunken

I hope they decide something soon so that plans can be made. I also hope they are reserved to the fact that no matter what decision they make, they are going to piss off a whole lot of people.

Given what I perceive the numbers to be on most teams, this route makes the most sense.  But a decision some time soon would be a nice little Christmas present.  santa  

It appears that the entities are standing around looking at each other and waiting for one to make a decision so they can all make a decision.  Someone just needs to go first.

I'm just super happy that this will make it so much easier to identify the best players.  Now if someone would be so kind as to explain to me exactly how this is going to help identify anything other than the year somebody was born? This whole plan has the same laser precision, steel trap vision one might experience at the conclusion of an 8 hour New Orleans pub crawl.

If they make the decision to bust up teams, then I certainly hope the give kids/families player releases immediately after last game of season so players have as much time as possible to find new teams/coaches.

That may be the hard thing to find out, what coaches are going with what age group if not posted on club web sites. I know a lot of clubs hardly update their sites with information like that.

My understanding to this particular question is yes. The only exception that I have been made aware of is for 98 birth year playing 99 ECNL. The 99 and 98 birth year will be combined. Otherwise there would have been quite a few 98 birth year that lost a year of playing. I do not know if this is the case for LH, AP or PP.
