Age Group Information

US YOUTH SOCCER USES A CALENDAR YEAR FORMAT TO DETERMINE PLAYER AGE GROUPS. ALSO NOTE THAT THE FORMAT "U FOLLOWED BY AGE" REALLY MEANS THAT AGE AND YOUNGER. FOR EXAMPLE, U8 SHOULD BE READ AS 8 AND YOUNGER.

THE FORMULA TO CALCULATE A PLAYERS AGE GROUP IS TO TAKE THE YEAR THE SPRING SEASON ENDS MINUS THE PLAYERS BIRTH YEAR. THAT NUMBER IS THEIR AGE GROUP. FOR EXAMPLE, A PLAYER BORN IN 2010 PLAYING IN THE FALL 2018 AND/OR SPRING 2019 SEASONS, WOULD BE A U9 PLAYER (2019-2010=9)

THE FOLLOWING ARE THE AGE GROUPS AND CORRESPONDING SOCCER PROGRAMS FOR THE Fall 2019 and Spring 2020 SEASON:
