This event is open to all ages 7-14. IMPORTANT! How old will your child be by 12/31/2014? If they will be 7-14, then they can participate in this event.

Example-

1) If your child is 6 turning 7 by 12/31/2014, they are able to participate in the 7-10 Age Group.

2) If your child is 10 turning 11 by 12/31/2014, they MUST participate in the 11-14 Age Group.
