Age Guide

Registration Age Breakdown

AYSO changed from a school year registration to a birth year registration in order to align with other youth soccer providers and the U.S. Soccer Player Development Initiatives.

The effective date of age determination for registration shall be the player’s age as of December 31 looking ahead of the Membership Year.  Example: For MY2023 the division the child will be placed in will be determined based on their age on December 31, 2024.

Participants who shall turn four years of age between January 1 and December 31 are eligible for AYSO Playground Soccer.

To help in determining the proper age and division for players, the following chart is provided and guidelines and rules are as follows from U.S. Soccer.
