Due to significant hardship for many players and teams, SFYBL has decided NOT TO ADOPT the new PONY Age Standard of September 1st for the 2018 season. Therefore the age brackets for our divisions for the Spring of 2018 season will revert back to the April 30th/May 1st cutoff and are outlined below.
- Shetland T-Ball (4U-6U): DOB between 5/1/2011-4/30/2014
- Shetland Coach Pitch (5U-7U): DOB between 5/1/2010-4/30/2013
- Pinto (7U-8U): DOB between 5/1/2009-4/30/2011
- Mustang (9U-10U): DOB between 5/1/2007-4/30/2009
- Bronco (11U-12U): DOB between 5/1/2005-4/30/2007
- Pony (13U-14U): DOB between 5/1/2003-4/30/2005 *Note that players born between 5/1/2003-8/31/2003 will not be eligible to play on a PONY League Summer All-Star Team.
VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: If a player is interested in trying out for a PONY League Summer All-Star team, that player MUST play in the correct PONY divison for his birthdate BASED ON THE NEW AGE STANDARD OF SEPTEMBER 1ST.
To be clear - players with birthdates in May, June, July or August who want to try out for one of the PONY League Summer All-Star teams MUST play their regular season games in the same PONY division that they would play for in the summer. Players with May, June, July or August birthdays who OPT to stay in the younger divsion for the regular season will not be eligible to try out for the all-star team of that division in the summer AND they would not be eligible to try out for the older divsion summer all-star team either since they did not play their regular season games in that divsion. Therefore, players with May, June, July or August birthdays who OPT to stay in the younger division for the regular season will be elimating themselves from PONY League Summer All-Star team consideration.
