The EDJBA does not endorse players playing outside of their qualified age group due to risk of injury and therefore the following policy has been developed.
If it is requested that a player plays one or more games in an age group that is two age groups or more higher than the age group that player would normally qualify for, then permission needs to be given (via the relevant permission form) by a parent or legal guardian, before that player takes the court. All players under the age of six will need permission to play in the EDJBA regardless of the age group they are playing in.
Examples of the intended application: a player who qualifies for Under 10’s needs permission to play in Under 14’s and a player who qualifies for under 13’s needs permission to play in under 17’s.
