New 2018 Age Cut-Off

During the 2016 PONY International Board of Directors meeting, a decision was reached to change the date for determining player eligibility from April 30 to August 31.

Since many surrounding towns are following the PONY age cutoff rule and this affects our involvement in the GDPBA, the WAA Board has voted to change the age cutoff in order to be consistent with the baseball programs in the area. The rule change will take effect at the start of the 2018 WAA Baseball season.

The PONY decision was reached after careful consideration of input from leagues, parents, coaches and other sources important in the decision-making process.

By making our program younger, all players will be competing on a level playing field. This change will ensure all WAA participants will play in their true age group and grade-level.
