We ask our members to enter in birthdate...and the league cutoff for age is 8/1 of any given year. Is there a way for me to create a hidden field that calculates their age? It'd help a ton with filtering when I go to roster teams. 

I'd rather not ask the parents via registration to enter their children's age as of 8/1...half will not read it correctly and the data will be wrong.

Sadly, there isn't a way to do a calculated field today like you're looking for. I did exactly as you said (asked them to put in their age using an as of date) and it was an epic fail. [frown] In the rostering tool though, you can filter results based on a date that is greater than or less than which works ok for what you're describing--you just have to do the math for each level.

You can have them enter their birth date and then have a required  'question' called League Age with conditional radio buttons... the values of which are league ages, conditional on the birth date range.  Then they have to select/acknowledge their league age.  And then you have a registration field populated correctly with league age.

Kind of hard to explain but it is doable
