USYSA (United States Youth Soccer Association) have defined new age group requirements beginning this 2016-2017 Soccer Year.  The new age groups
follow birth year.  You can calculate your child's new soccer birth year for 2017-2018 by subtracting the year born from 2018.  For example, 2018 minus
Birth Year 2006 equals U12.   The registration system will calculate the appropriate age group when registering. A player may play an older age group
but may not play in a younger age group.  Requests to play in an older age group in Recreational Soccer Programs should be noted in the Leave
Comments for Registrar section during Player Registration.  Also use this section for special requests for coaches or practice times.
