Age Waiver Policy

The RARO Board of Directors had adopted the following policy regarding age waivers for RARO participants:

No requests for age waiver will be considered.

If the RARO staff deems a participant too dominant in a sport or activity with his/her age group so as not to allow others in that age group a reasonable chance to succeed; or a participant appears to be so physically dominant so as to endanger others in his/her age grouping, the RARO staff will contact that participant’s parents to suggest possible wavier to move that child “up” to the next age grouping in that sport or activity. Conversely, if a participant proves smaller, very inexperienced or meek, or if staff feels he/she is endangered, they may also suggest to move said child “down” to the younger age grouping.
