The US Youth Soccer board voted to implement the “calendar year” registration to begin in the 2016-2017 season (1 August 2016). All state associations and their members are required to make the change. At the US Youth Soccer AGM in late July, a straw poll vote was taken for implementing the birth year registration in 2016-17 and the result was 91% in favor.
The initiative will align registration with the international standard, while simultaneously providing clearer information on player birth dates to combat 'relative age effect'.
Relative age effect refers to the selection bias related to players that are more physically mature than their peers due to being born earlier in the year. U.S. Soccer seeks a balance of players that are born throughout the year so that all players, those born in the earlier months, and those born later have equal opportunity to grow and develop as soccer players.
The following provides age group based on year of birth (Jan 1-Dece 31 of birth year)
|Birth Year||Age Group|
|2010||U08 (will play up with U09)|
|2000 & 1999||U19 (RDYSL does not have A U18 Division)|
Players who are interested in additional training, playing, and a more competitive focus, may be intersted in our Travel Soccer Program. This program begins with tryouts in July for U13+ and September for the younger girls, team placement in October, indoor practice through mid-April, and outdoor practice through May through July. The game season for this program is May through July. Teams also participate in soccer tournaments.
The commitment level and expectations for our Travel Soccer Program is much higher than recreational soccer. Our document below on Travel Soccer Commitment will help parents gain a better understanding for the program.
