*Can apply for dispensation under the Relative Age Effect (RAE) Rule.

  1. Players may only register in Mixed SSF if they are four (4) years of age or older as at midnight on the 31st December of the year prior.
  2. No player should play in an age group more than two (2) years higher than they are qualified for, unless they have been granted dispensation by the relevant committee.
  3. The Relative Age Effect (RAE) allows for players born in last thee (3) months (between the 1st of October and 31st of December), to offset any physical disadvantage to players born in the earlier months of a year by playing down an age group.
