FOR THE 2019/2020 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 2019-20 soccer year:

  • Players born during the year 2006 will be labeled as 14 and Under (year competition ends, 2020,  minus year born, 2006)
  • 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 2020 makes them a 15U.
