Age/Grade Divisions

The Long Island Lutheran Basketball League (L.I.L.B.L.)
structure of divisions is as follows:

The cutoff date used for age determination is December 15th.
This is meant to align closely to school grades.
There is 15 days grace in either direction of 12/15, meaning that December babies can go either way without an official "exception request".
January through November birthdays are rather clear cut.
We anticipate that a December birthday will most likely stick with their grade mates . . .
