I agree.

From what I understand from other posters , be grateful that in the U.S you are allowed to play up.
Here in the U.K. you will only play the coloured ball of your age group.
8 &under = red
9 & under = orange
10 & under = green

There is absolutley no flexiblity for parents to decide.
It doesnt matter how tall, how good or what, you as a parent/coach are hoping/ trying to achieve.

You will play in your age group until you hit 12 & under then you can play whatever: 18's, adults or stick to your age group.
