I know you have to be 18 to play in the pro league in the PIHA, but what is the youngest age you can be to play in the minors.

The youngest you can be to play minors is 16.

I've heard 15 years old, so you're sure it's 16

I've heard 15 years old, so you're sure it's 16Are you talking about that whole "draft" thing? I don't think they're actually supposed to play for the team, they just get a jersey and T-shirt or whatever. Here's the quote from the site if it clears anything up.
Born in 1992?
Not old enough to play PIHA yet?
Don't let a day go by before you
sign up for the 2008 PIHA (http://www.thepiha.com/page.php?page=draft)
Prospects Draft (http://www.thepiha.com/page.php?page=draft)! All players will be
placed in the draft, which will be
held live at the 2008 PIHA Finals.

As of PIHA rules, no team can play a player in any game at the age of 15. Teams may roster a 15 year old player and make him wait until his 16th birthday before being allowed to play in any games. MUST BE 16 at the start of that game! 16 year old players may only play minor league until they turn 18 when they will be of legal age for pro if the team desires to play them in pro.
If your 16th birthday is later into the season, it is very highly unlikely that any team will put you on the roster taking a valuable roster space for someone with ability whom can help immediately, and wait for you to turn 16, but good luck with that!
