WFDF revises eligibility age for female players in Mixed Masters division
14 April 2017
The World Flying Disc Federation (“WFDF”) is pleased to announce that it is revising the eligibility age for female players participating in the Mixed Masters division, lowering it from 33 years to 30 years. The change was made to conform to the eligibility age that has been in place for the Women’s Masters division.
“After lengthy discussion and a unanimous vote in favor, the WFDF Ultimate Committee had recommended that change, bringing the eligibility age for females participating in the Women’s Masters and Mixed Masters divisions to the same level, avoiding unnecessary confusion and inconsistency,” stated WFDF President Robert “Nob” Rauch.
“Unlike raising eligibility age, lowering the age limit can be done more quickly as no player who was eligible for this division “yesterday” will not be eligible “tomorrow.”
“USAU and Ultimate Canada, the only National Federations who are planning to include a Mixed Masters division in their 2017 National Championships as a qualification for WMUCC 2018, are aware of and gave approval for this change,” added Brian Gisel, WFDF Ultimate Committee chair.
The change is effective immediately and will be in place for the upcoming 2018 WFDF World Masters Ultimate Club Championships, taking place in Winnipeg, Canada, July 29-Aug 4, 2018. The WFDF Board approved of the proposal unanimously upon the recommendation of the Ultimate Committee.
