    Px Wow!! You scared me. If accepted to boarding school, I will be 19 my entire senior year as I will be repeating. On Page 18 it specifically says, "Individual athletes who are 19 years old, or younger, on September 1st of each school year "ARE" eligible to participate in all NEPSAC Competition."

    You either mis-read it, misinterpreted it, or???

    I interpret it to say, "Anyone who is 20 before Sept 1, of the upcoming school-year, is not able to participate. So all 19 years can play, and 20 year olds can play, as long as they were 19 on Sept 1.

    bshopeful2013: I think they were both saying the same thing but in different ways... One of my sons was a PG and played at 19 (being 19 when school year started). However this rule is stricker if you are playing in the midwest league (think Hill School, Lawrenceville)...it is 18 at beginning of year.
    @Hockey Mom, bspreppie is very knowledgable and all the information she has provided completely jives with my personal experience with my own sons (and many friends) playing prep hockey.
    @bspreppie, maybe you should change carreers and be a consultant!
