General Information

US Soccer Birth Year registration requirements must be adhered to during the registration process.  If your child’s birthdate is between 2009-2014, you can request that they play down to remain with their school-age peers.  Players who participate in the Interclub League (2008 to 2000) cannot play down due to DYSA insurance purposes.

Tiny Mites (2015) through U10 (2009)

  • Players have the ability to play down within 5 months of the birth year cut-off without approval
  • If your child would like to play down and their birth date is between August 1 and December 31 before the designated birth year you may request your child play with the younger birth year teams.
    • Example: birth year = 2008 – range August 1, 2007 to December 31, 2007
  • To stay in your birth year age group – no action necessary
