Age Calculator

Age grading is determined based on your childs age as at the 1 January each year.

e.g. If your child is nine years old on the 1 January 2010 then your child will be eligible to play in Melbourne’s U10 team.

Once the age eligiblity has been determined the childs will join that age group and we will monitor their suitablility to ensure that they are playing in a grade that matches their age and development.

On occassion we may determine that your child is not suited to the eligible grade and we will seek dispensation for your child to play in a more suitable grade.  Issues taken into consideration include mental and physical maturity, rugby experience and overall confidence to progress with our programme.  On occassion that may be particuarly benefical to first year players.

If you have any queries please speak with your eligible team coach or junior coordinator.
