2016-2017 US Soccer Age Information

The United States Soccer Federation (U.S. Soccer) has announced major changes for youth soccer which will affect soccer clubs throughout the United States, beginning in August, 2016.

The biggest modification will be the change to birth year eligibility.  In past seasons, age groups were defined with an August 1st cutoff. For example, current Under 12 age group teams are comprised of players born between August 1, 2003 and July 31, 2004. Starting next season, the age group cutoff will switch to January 1st for all age groups. So, for next year, the Under 12 age group will be comprised of players born in the year 2005. The new U.S. Soccer Age Matrix is shown below.

The easiest way to determine your child’s soccer age is to use the following formula:

Year Season Ends – Birth Year = Age Group

For example a child born on May 1, 2003 for the 2016/17 season would be a U14 based on the calculation below:

2017-2003= 14
