Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
You are correct in thinking this is an ADA issue. Upon your complying with the league's rules and providing proof of his disabilities, your son is entitled to a reasonable accommodation for his disabilities. You need to exhaust your administrative remedies before proceeding to court, which means you have to follow the appeals process and appeal the denial of the waiver through that process first. You are going to have to provide documentation from his doctor regarding his limitations and the accommodation that he requires along with a letter from the local team he was playing with explaining that he is qualified to play at the lower level and why he cannot make it playing in the age appropriate level. Along with that documentation you need to be specific in your appeal letter regarding his entitlement to reasonable accommodation under the ADA based on his disability.
If the appeal is denied, then you are entitled to proceed to court with a suit for denial of his rights pursuant to the ADA.
