    I have a form that requires a birthday. Is there a way to automatically add age group based on birthday ? for example if the person enter 09/07/2000 they are put into the U13 age group?

    U9 8/1/04 – 7/31/05
    U10 8/1/03 – 7/31/04
    U11 8/1/02 – 7/31/03
    U12 8/1/01 – 7/31/02
    U13 8/1/00 – 7/31/01
    U14 8/1/99 – 7/31/00
    U15 8/1/98 – 7/31/99
    U16 8/1/97 – 7/31/98
    U17 8/1/96 – 7/31/97
    U18 8/1/95 – 7/31/96

  2. You will have to perform this calculation and store the age group yourself. You can use the gform_pre_submission filter http://www.gravityhelp.com/documentation/page/Gform_pre_submission and read the date which is entered, then store the age group in a hidden or admin only field. You will probably want to make the code such that it works year over year (i.e. the birth dates for U13 players will be different next year, and you don't want to have to update this code every year.)

    Is there a tutorial or sample on how to do this?

    There isn't as this is a customization that no one has asked for before. You would have to hire a developer to do this for you if you don't feel that you can take it on. It should be relatively simple for an intermediate level or above PHP developer.
