HOW DO I DETERMINE SOCCER AGE AND WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

Soccer team registration is determined by a birth year rule.  

The current soccer year is used to determine soccer age.  The current soccer year runs from August 1st to July 31st each year.  So the fall season of each year is the time when a player's soccer year advances.  The year used to determine soccer age for the upcoming session is the higher number of the current soccer year.  The current soccer year is 2018-2019 - please see MYSA's Birth Year Chart for details.  Essentially, you take the current soccer year and subtract the birth year of your child (eg.  a child born in 2014 gives 2019-2014=5.  5U would be the soccer age)

The result will give you the "U" soccer age the player can participate at.  The rules follow a soccer age and under participation guideline, i.e. 5U means soccer age players 5 and under can play on a team.  For the younger age groups, we try to keep kids on squads with the designated soccer age listed.  Occasionally players can play up a year, in the Tiny Tots program.  A player can never play "down" (at a lower soccer age) in tournament play, but may be allowed to do this in the Mini Kicks and Tiny Tots programs.  As a rule, teams in these programs are formed based on age, but players move around a bit based on need to fill team slots.
