leagues at this point
The following rules
are specific to
Premier Sportsplex.


In some leagues, age divisions will be separated:
  • NBA Division: Highly competitive and experienced teams
  • NCAA Division: Newly formed or developing community teams
    League administrators reserve the right to place a team in the proper division.
    ** Determination will be made at entry deadline as to whether a division will make.
All Premier Leagues are Grade Based.
  • All Premier leagues will be grade based only. Our purpose is to allow all eligible players to play with their current grade or higher if so desired.. Even if grade eligible, no player may play in a division where that player is more than one year older than the appropriate age for that division
  • For determining eligibility only, the appropriate ages are as follows:
  1/2 Grade/7 and 8 years
3rd Grade/9 years
4th Grade/10 years
5th Grade/11 years

7th Grade/ 13 years
8th grade 14 years
9th-10th grade/ 16 years
11th-12th grade/ 18 years
  • The age determining date for applying the maximum age rule is September 1, 2013. For example, a 7th grader who turned 14 before September 1, 2013 is not eligible to play in the 7th grade division. This will allow all players who are eligible to play on grade level with their school team (UIL) to also play on that level in the Premier Leagues.
