New Age Divisions

AYSO Changing to BIRTH YEAR Divisions

AYSO is changing from a school year registration to a birth year registration in order to align with other  American youth soccer program providers interpretation of the U.S. Soccer Player Development Initiatives.

The effective date of age determination for registration shall be the player's age as of December 31 looking ahead of the Membership Year.  (Example: For MY2017 the division the child will be placed in  will be determined based on their age on December 31, 2018.)

We will be using the following chart.

Find your player's birth year then look across under MY2017 (this coming Fall).  That is the division your player will be in for Fall 2017 (and Spring 2018).

How does it really work? Registration for MY2017 for a player that is presently 11 and turns 12 at any time in 2018 will be in the 12U division.  If a player is presently 12, but turns 13 during the fall of 2017 or in 2018, s/he will be in 14U (unless a program has a 13U division).
