The Play! Pokémon program divides players into tournament groups based on the year they were born. These groups are the Junior, Senior, and Masters Divisions. Whenever possible, players are paired with other players in the same age division. Prizes are typically awarded to the best players in each age division.
The age divisions for players in the 2023 season will increase by one year from the 2022 season:
Junior Division: Born in 2011 or later
Senior Division: Born in 2007, 2008, 2009, or 2010
Masters Division: Born in 2006 or earlier
Parents should remain on site to keep track of their children and, of course, celebrate their play. Tournaments usually take several hours, so parents might want to bring a book or some other quiet activity to occupy their time. We encourage parents to build a deck and join the fun!
