FOR THE 2018/2019 SEASON
Beginning Aug. 1, 2016, US Youth Soccer began using the following birth-year “labels” for competition, based upon the season in which competition ends. For example the 2018-19 soccer year:
- Players born during the year 2006 will be labeled as 13 and Under
- 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. For example a player born in 2005 subtracted from 2019 makes them a 14U.
