Soccer Age Group Descriptions

US Youth Soccer, a respected leader in player development for more than 40 years, has seen the evolution of the game and various changes. In August 2017, the organization decided to begin using calendar birth years to determine age groups in order to align with international standards and youth national team programs.

Previously, age groups were determined based on players born between Aug. 1 and July 31.  The change to calendar year age groups are now Jan. 1 to Dec. 31.

We have decided to follow suit with US Youth Soccer in their age requirements.  Please see the birth year and season matrix to find your child’s birth year and which league is best for them.  We offer U4, U6, U8, U10 and U12 age groups.  If your child’s birth year falls on the U5, U7, U9, or U11 group, your child will be placed in the next highest age group.  For example, if your child’s birth year falls under the U7 group, he/she will register for the U8 league.

Age Divisions:
U4 – Birth year 2016 and 2017
U6 – Birth year 2014 and 2015 
U8 – Birth year 2012 and 2013
U10 Birth year 2010 and 2011
U12 Birth year 2008 and 2009
