Moving up age groups


I babysit a little boy who will be turning 5 in June. He plays Timbits hockey and now got moved up to the "novice" (which is 7-8 year old players)

He's a great little player and scores tonnes of goals in Novice. He's played 10 games with the novice team and has 13 goals and 7 assists and 10 PIM. He has been approached to be APed (Afiliated player) with an Atom Team. These kids would be 9-10 years old.

I coach another sport and I have no problem moving my kids up. I have an 11 year old who is attending world juniors as an underager. The lowest age category is 15-16 years old. My other two athletes are also underaged.

BUT this isn't a contact sport. As much as his mom, dad and I think that he probably COULD play in the Atom level, he's ONLY four. The coach is being very persistant and calling the house and talking to the child.

Because he's four, all he knows is that he gets to play more hockey.

How do you tell a four year old he can't paly for the other team?
