What is Grade Level Exception (GLE)?

VYS policy allows players in the U5 to U12 House League Age Divisions to play up one age division so that they can play with friends in their grade school class.

In order to receive a Grade Level Exception (GLE), a player MUST:

  1. Have a birthdate that falls between August 1st and September 30th, AND
  2. Is in school in the next higher grade.

A player must meet both conditions to be eligible for the Grade Level Exception.

If a player selects to register by grade, please send an email to the VYS Registrar requesting a Grade Level Exception.
