Tournament participation

Q.   For our school’s team, we have ten 3rd graders, one 4th grader, and zero 5th graders. Can some of those 3rd graders “compete up” in the 4th and 5th grade competition? We were thinking to like when Rec & Ed lets kids “play up” a grade (but now down a grade).

A.  Sorry but all Olympians must participate at their own grade level designation, one team per grade per school.
