BHA Simple Age Calculator

Competitions that are age restricted require that a player's age as at the 1st January of current year be determined. In the case of the BHA Junior Hockey League (JHL) Competition, that age (as at 1 January) is used to place a player in the corresponding "under age team" for the Season. Here are some examples:

  • a player who is 12 years old as at 1 January of the current year would be "under 13" and therefore eligible to play in the JHL Under 13 Division;
  • a player who is 9 years old as at 1 January of the current year would be eligible to play in the JHL Under 11 Division, but not in the Under 9 Division.

The following form can be used to determine a player's age as at 1 January of the year entered in the "Season year" field, e.g. 2020.
