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.
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
