Age Group Matrix

In accordance with the new US Youth Soccer Initiative, birth-year registration calendars will now align with the start of the calendar year and run from January to December, rather than August to July as it had previously. The initiative will align registration with the international standard.

How to determine the birth year used for a competition: Birth year registration should be based on the year in which the season ends. For example, if a season begins in the fall of 2018 and ends in the summer of 2019 (ex: 2018-19 season), the players would be registered based on their age in the year 2019. Competitions that take place in a single year (ex: fall of 2018 only) should use that year to determine birth year. To simplify determining the age group, just subtract the birth year from the year the season ends.

Year Season Ends - Birth Year = Age Group:

  • 2018-2019 (Season) - 2003 (Birth Year) = U16 (Age Group)
  • 2022-2023 (Season) - 2016 (Birth Year) = U7 (Age Group)
  • 2018 (Season) - 2012 (Birth Year) = U6 (Age Group)

Please use the matrix below to line up your child's birth year, which will show the specific age group for a given season.
