Given the timing of this championship tournament, Rising Stars teams can have players that are currently in their junior year on their rosters at the championship event. The same principle applies to the youth divisions. For example, a player that qualified on a U15 roster in the summertime and is going into his freshman or sophomore year in the fall may still participate in the national championship in the U15 division, even though he has been in high school for one semester.
In the youth divisions (U15, U13, U11), the age cutoffs are as follows:
U11: all players must have been born between 8/1/2001 and 9/30/2003
U13: all players must have been born between 8/1/1999 and 9/30/2001
U15: all players must have been born between 8/1/1997 and 9/30/1999
