If you are a player or parent who is having trouble registering for a 10 and under or 12 and under division and receiving the below error message, this is likely due to Youth Progression.

User-added image

Youth Progression has been rolled out for most Sections and is a program that requires players who are 10 and under to participate in tournaments/divisions that are coded by ball color (Orange Level 1, Green Level 1, etc.) until they have accumulated enough points (stars and trophies) to advance out of the program.

If you feel that you have reached this in error please reach out to your Section/District office. You can find their contact information by going to Find Section/District Office Contact Information. If you are not sure what Youth Progression level you are, you can go to Find Youth Progression Level or follow the steps below:

Note: Players "age out" of Youth Progression when they turn 11. For example, if the player turns 11 in the month of October, they will be "aged out" of Youth Progression on the 1st of October and will be able to register for 12U events
