New Age Eligibility Guidelines for 2024 Season

The PlayFPN season runs from 9/1 to 8/31 each year.

  • Each fall, teams are required to make a new team for the new season which runs (9/1 to 8/31). 
  • For the 2024 season, the rules are changing. USA Softball has changed the age eligibility requirements for the 2024 season and PlayFPN will follow this change for our events. Every major softball organization in the country, except USSSA, is following the USA Softball guidelines.
    • For the 2024 season which begins on 9/1/23, whatever the player's physical age is on 8/31/23 is their playing age for the full season which runs 9/1/23 to 8/31/24).
    • When you create your 2024 team if you choose to copy over players from the 2023 team it will only copy over players that are age eligible under the new rules.
