  • Beginning Aug. 1, 2017, all youth soccer sanctioning organizations will form competitions based on birth-year age groups.
     
  • Beginning Aug. 1, 2016, US Youth Soccer will be using the following birth-year “labels” for competition, based upon the season in which competition ends. For example:
    • Players born from August 1, 1997 – December 31, 1998 will be labeled as Under-19/20s.
    • Players born from January 1, 1999 – December 31, 1999 will be labeled as Under-18s.
    • Players born from January 1, 2000 – December 31, 2000 will be labeled as Under-17s.
    • Players born from January 1, 2001 – December 31, 2001 will be labeled as Under-16s.
    • Players born from January 1, 2002 – December 31, 2002 will be labeled as Under-15s.
    • Players born from January 1, 2003 – December 31, 2003 will be labeled as Under-14s.
    • Players born from January 1, 2004 – December 31, 2004 will be labeled as Under-13s.
    • With the exception of the US Youth Soccer Under-19/20s, the age group “label” will be determined by subtracting the year in which the players participating in the competition were born from the year in which competition ends.
