Can 13 year olds compete in tournaments?

I am looking for new 2013 rookie tournaments, and I figured I should see if, as a 13 yr old, I would even be allowed to compete?

Yes you can compete but the question is do you have enough experience or play good enough to be picked up by a team.

Of course you can. Just play good ball and ignore the kids who hate on younger players.

Stay away from strictly young guns teams. They ussaly are led by a 15 year old that thinks that he's jrab. They also tend I screw you over alot and be inconsistent . Just join a normal team

Coach and play for a young guns team.
So yes you can but it all depends on your skill level at the moment. Young guns teams are alright, but they're starter teams. One of the kids I coached is playing D3 so......

Hey, I'm 13 and I haven't played tournaments yet, but as far as I know teams like younger kids, because they tend to be short.

Short= easy to hide behind bunkers and smaller target.
