**ABA has confirmed that players in Grade 9 and one year older than the U15 age level (2008 birth year) will be allowed to play at the ABA Youth Provincials for 2024. This is in consideration that there are not a large group of players on all teams needing this exception. The understanding and spirit of these exceptions are speaking to a handful of players that ask for this exception each year across the CMBA League. Zone Registrars need to provide to the CMBA Office via email the players at the U15 level that are confirmed in their Zone to be registered as one year older to be able to play before the beginning of the U15 season (by September 30th, 2023). These players then would be verified and confirmed to play by the CMBA League Office for the 2023-2024 season.**
