Current Soccer Season

Starting in the 2016-17 soccer season, player eligibility for teams will follow the "birth year registration" guidelines.  Please see below for directions and examples on how to determine your player's appropriate level of play.


What is “playing up” and are players able to “play down”?

Players have the ability to “play up” with teammates at older age groups, based on birth year. Players are not permitted to “play down” with teammates at younger age groups, based on birth year.  For example, a U12 player is allowed to play for a U13 team, but not a U11 team.

How do I determine the correct age group for a player?

Birth year registration should be based on the year in which the season ends. For example, if a season begins in the fall of 2016 and ends in the summer of 2017 (ex: 2016-17 season), the players would be registered based on their age in the year 2017.

To simplify determining the age group, just subtract the birth year from the year the season ends.

Year Season EndsBirth Year = Age Group

----------------------

For example ...

For the 2022-2023 soccer season, a player born in 2010 would be:

2023 - 2010 = 13U

For the 2022-2023 soccer season, a player born in 2005 would be:

2023 - 2005 = 18U
