*MJVBA Modifications

It is important for club directors, parents and players to realize if the age modifications are used, players will  have to move up 2 age divisions once ineligible for the modifications 

This will allow those players who have early summer birthdays to compete with their age grouping but will not allow those students who are a full year ahead in age & physical maturity to compete in a lesser age division.

To have a waived players on your team. You will need some official documentation as to their grade for the current school year. A report card would be good. There is no need to apply for a waiver. You have to have this documentation with you at all tournaments in case their is a question about the legality of the player.

If you are going to AAU Nationals you will have to adhere to the age divisions listed on www.aausports.org  No age waivers are allowed at the National Championships.
