Junior Cadet Age Change and Reminders
updated 4/17/13
You may remember that at last year's Convention in Knoxville, the age for Junior Cadet pitchers was changed from 9 to 12 years of age. This means that any Junior pitcher who is 12 years old or younger for this entire calendar year, may now pitch as a Junior Cadet and observe the 20-foot foul line. The 'problem' here is that those Junior Cadets who had already moved back to the 30' foul line, and who may now choose to move up to the 20' foul line, will have to re-qualify at this new, shorter distance as per our Rules for changing pitching distances. Also, to be eligible to enter the World Tournament, they must have completed at least one sanctioned event, at this new distance, before the WT entry deadline. Please see Rule 11, Section D.1 (RGS page 19) for additional information about re-qualifying, or on the NHPA Website at Please note that this re-qualifier is not considered to be a sanctioned event.
Looking forward to seeing many of you in St. George!
