Please assist, challenge not passing.

This challenge is not passing and i'm not completely sure why.

I have a reputation(to myself) for missing obvious bits of code so please be patient with me.

scorekeeper/serializers.py
from rest_framework import serializers

from . import models


class GameSerializer(serializers.ModelSerializer):
    class Meta:
        fields = ('id', 'name')
        model = models.Game


class PlayerSerializer(serializers.ModelSerializer):
    class Meta:
        fields = ('id', 'name', 'age')
        model = models.Player

    def validate_age(self, age):
        if age > 13:
            return age
        raise serializer.ValidationError(
            'Age must age must be 13 or over')


class ScoreSerializer(serializers.ModelSerializer):
    game = serializers.HyperlinkedRelatedField(
        read_only=True, view_name='apiv2:game-detail')
    player = serializers.HyperlinkedRelatedField(
        read_only=True, view_name='apiv2:player-detail')

    class Meta:
        fields = ('id', 'game', 'player', 'score')
        model = models.Score

You have a typo here: raise serializer.ValidationError It must be serializers.ValidationError with an "s" at the end.
