What age group will my child be in at Nippers?

To determine what age group your child will be in, just use the chart below ie. what age your child is at 30th September eg. my son will be 13 on 30 September but turns 14 in January = he is the U14’s this season.

Please note: children are not allowed to participate or compete at Nippers in an incorrect age group. This a mandate from SLSA and regardless of the requirement to be with friends or the perceived ‘skill level’ of the child – they are not covered by insurance and will not be eligible for any SLSA or club awards unless they undertake activities with their correct age group.
