Badminton Alberta introduces changes to age categories for all provincial junior events

Participants in Alberta junior tournaments during the Fall of 2015 can continue to play in the same age category that they contested last spring for Junior Provincials. The exception are third year athletes in u20, who are ineligible immediately. U20 has become a true u19 age category.

Simply put an athlete can not turn the age of the category within that calendar year. Alberta athletes may be required to move up to an older age category effective 01 January. Those athletes wanting to move up to an older age group now are eligible to do so.
