Age to work at a field?

I'm looking for owners opinions: How old do you have to be to work at a field? I'm 14 and I think it would be awesome. Hell, at my local field one of the refs is 13. So what do you guys think? BTW, if any field owners in the Southeast PA region are looking for some help with anything, send me a PM.

Most fields that employ anyone under 16 gets paid in merchandise as child labor laws require you to be 16 to work in a non-family business.

Lol, Here, in AZ I think it is supposed to be 16, but it varies by state. And also at a field I play at some like 13 year old kid refs somtimes so somtimes people aren't to strict about things.

We abide by our liability insurance requirements of 16 years or older (not the younger state of Texas allowances). However, most of my refs are 17-24 years plus.
