From the Main Menu bar, click on File / Entry/Scoring Preferences / Age-Grading.

Note that 1 year age grading is no longer supported. Only 5 year Age Grading is available for 35 year olds and up.




To have reports show Age Grading, click on Setup / Report Preferences / Report Formats and check the box Show Age-Graded Conversion Tables. You have the option to include or not include them in results reports using the 1 column courier format only. If you have the Age-grading Option, these calculations are automatically calculated as you enter results regardless of whether you are showing age-grading or not.


The 2014 WMA (formerly WAVA) Age Grading Tables are available if you have the Age Grading Option.


The age-graded tables were researched and compiled by the National Masters News and by the World Masters Association (WMA and formerly WAVA) back prior to 1994. In 2006, a completely new set of tables were added with many new events included. In 2014 these tables were updated again with changes mostly to the throwing events for 65 and older due to changes in implements used.
