USA Field Hockey’s Age Group Explanation: An athlete’s age on December 31 of that given year determines what age group the athlete will be in for the following year. For example, if the athlete is 15 years old on December 31 and turns 16 on January 1 they remain in the U-16 division.  So for WMASS HKY, whatever age you were this past December 31st, that is the age group you will play in this year.
