Not necessarily. We find that most players who are 8-9 years old are on the cusp of whether to play PeeWee or general session.
If a player is 8-9 and is involved in team athletics, contact sports or are rough and tumble, they’re typically ready to join general sessions. However, if they are more of a home body or isn’t as aggressive, they may be better starting as PeeWee for their first visit with us and then decide from there if they want to try general session next time.
We will not allow players under the age of 8 in general session unless a parent is actively playing alongside their child for every game, and even then we reserve the right to withhold them from gameplay upon arrival if we find they are too small to safely carry the 5lb rental gun or if they are having trouble understanding and abiding by the safety rules we have in place.
