You don't see the NCAA saying that players have to be under 25, if you're a student and good enough to play (assuming you haven't gone pro), you can play.
Yes, I've never understood the whole age thing, especially since all CIS athletes are adults and no other sport does it. It was introduced solely because we have the CJFL, while other jurisdictions don't. I'm sure if the OUA starts falling behind again, they'll find some other thing to "fix".
