AGE MATRIX AND GROUPINGS

Age groups in youth soccer are referred to by a "U" meaning "under" and then a number for the age. A team that is classified as "U10" would have kids 10 and younger only. Players will often be younger than 10 so bear in mind that that is only the reference to the category they will be playing in - some kids in U10 would be 9 or even late in their 8th year depending on where they fall with their birthdays.

Currently, youth players in the United States sign up for same-age group clubs and teams based on the traditional calendar of a school year, from August to July. To accurately find where your player falls on this chart please refer to the Birth Year Age Matrix found here. US YOUTH SOCCER AGE MATRIX

WE ARE CURRENTLY IN THE 2018/2019 SEASON which runs from Aug. 1 to July 31 of the following year.

Using birth year registration ensures that players are training and playing in the proper age group, each with their own developmental needs.

There is another very important component to understand about this chart. To avoid players aging out of an age group during a season, the new top age group for youth competitions is U19. This change aligns with the birth year standard and makes sure that players are not eliminated from participating during the second half of a season. In short, all the existing U18 leagues should become U19 in the 2018-19 season and this change should cascade down the age groups (Ex: U17 becomes U18, U16 becomes U17, etc.).
