I'm about to shock you all, Sweden just released the age grids for next season and Junior Elite (J6) is up to 18. Granted you can't be 6 on a junior team, not even on a youth team.. They upped the ages this year so teams can stay intact for next season, because you know, covid.. You're also not allowed to officially compete under the age of 12, just exhibition. And all senior teams are open. This is also because we're working towards a more international sport status, looking at other sports like biathlon and cross country skiing you're still a "junior" at age 23..
