Special Notice:Our club is complying with the new CJSA/US Youth Soccer age group requirements effective for the Fall, 2016 season. What does this mean? Beginning September 2016, age groups will be by calendar year and not by school grade that is currently in effect. Players will be playing by their birth year (i.e., 2006, 2007, etc.). You can determine your son or daughter’s age group by subtracting the birth year from 2017. If you have a son/daughter born in 2005, subtract that from 2017 and your son/daughter will be playing U12.
