US Youth Soccer – New Age Group Structure (Fall 2016-2017 Season): *Please note, beginning on August 1, 2016, US Youth Soccer (USYSA) has instituted a birth -year registration mandate. For more information, go to: US Club Soccer update on US youth soccers birth year registration mandate. If you are not sure what age group to register for, this Player Age Chart will show you what age group your player is eligible for.
Beginning August 1, 2016 all regional and national US Youth Soccer competitions, including all levels of the US Youth Soccer National Championship Series , US Youth Soccer National League, US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program , US Youth Soccer Regional Leagues, and US Youth Soccer Presidents Cup , will be based on age group cut-offs of January 1 for each age group. Due to additional interpretative changes by U.S. Soccer since this announcement in how competition age groups are labeled, US Youth Soccer and other sanctioning bodies are now clarifying the age group structures for the 2016 season and beyond.
Addison United strongly encourages players to play in their age group. Any exception
to this is at the sole discretion of the Director of Coaching in consultation with the player, their family, and the coaching staff. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
