Age Ranges

Beginning in the Fall 2016 soccer season, USA Soccer has changed the age ranges from school year to birth year. This will result in more players moving up to an older age program for the upcoming season.

The year the season ends will be used for determining the birth year. For example, the upcoming season begins in Fall 2016 and ends in Spring 2017, the seasonal year end would be 2017. To calculate the proper year for a player, subtract the player’s birth year, from the season ending year. This will give you the player’s age group for that season. Below are two examples for the upcoming season.

Example 1

  • Player born in 2005
  • 2017 – 2005 = 12
  • Player will be U12 for the 2016-2017 season

Example 2

  • Player born in 2009
  • 2017 – 2009 = 8
  • Player will be U8 for the 2016-2017 season
