Season Age Group Information

Our age groups are mandated by US Youth Soccer. The regulations do not allow players to participate in a younger age group than their age allows. Player classification for the soccer year has been changed per U.S.Y.S. and now is mandated by the players BIRTH YEAR. A player must be at least 6 years of age to participate and no older than 15 years of age.  


For The 2019/2020 Fiscal Soccer Year {Fall 2019 thru Spring 2020}; the age groups per birth year are as follows (PLEASE NOTE AS PER OUR COACHES MEETING ON 6/14/2018 AND ISSUES RELATING TO BIRTH MONTH VS THE BIRTH YEAR MATRIX THE LEAGUE WILL BE CHANGING THE AGE GROUP CLASSIFICATIONS BEGINNING WITH THE FALL 2018 SEASON AND MOVING FORWARD.)

Also please note that the birth years by age group noted below are what the player's age will be in 2020.  E,g.  a player born in 2005 will turn 15 in 2020 so that player will be in the 15 and Under (15U) age group for the Fall 2019 thru Spring 2020 Fiscal Soccer Year no matter when the players birth month was in 2020.  Hence if the players birth month is in January or December of 2020 that player will be in the 15U age group if born in 2005.  No exceptions.

AGE GROUP BIRTH YEAR(S)
15 and under 20052006*
13 and under 2007 2008*
11 and under 2009 2010*
9 and under 20112012*
7 and under 2013 2014*

*AS THE LEAGUE NOW DOES NOT HAVE  AN 8 UNDER, 10 AND UNDER, 12 AND UNDER, AND 14 AND UNDER TEAMS THOSE AGE GROUPS ARE COMBINED WITH ODD AGE GROUPS. E.G. 2011 IS FOR THE 8 AND UNDER AGE GROUP SO THEY WILL BE PLACED IN THE 9 AND UNDER AGE GROUP..  THIS WILL MAKE OUR AGE GROUPS/TEAMS MUCH AS THEY HAVE BEEN UNDER THE OLD SYSTEM HOWEVER USING ODD AGES RATHER THAN EVEN.


A PLAYER MAY REQUEST PERMISSION TO MOVE UP AN AGE GROUP, WITH A WAIVER** SIGNED BY PARENT, IF WITHIN 12 MONTHS. THE BOARD DOES HAVE THE RIGHT TO DENY ANY REQUEST. A PLAYER MAY NOT PLAY DOWN AN AGE GROUP

**Age waivers must be submitted each season. They do not automatically renew.  Parents must send a letter of intent (waiver) to place their child in one age group up from that they are required to play in to the Registrar and a copy to the Secretary during the open registration period.  This request will be reviewed by the Board of Directors of the Warren Youth Soccer League and their decision is final.  The wavier is found under the Registration tab>walk in registration downloads and under the coaches documents heading (form #4).
