Age Chart

Age Chart for SYSA

US Youth Soccer has mandated that youth soccer age groups nationwide will be delineated by calendar year, as opposed to the current model that more closely mirrors the school calendar. Previously, the age groups were determined based on a year beginning August 1 and ending the following July 31.

The change to calendar year age groups will reflect the calendar year – or January 1 to December 31. Therefore, as an example, any player born in 2003 now will be an ’03, and teams and playing years will be organized around players who were born in 2002, 2003, 2004, etc.

Use this chart to determine the appropriate age group for your player for the 2016/17 season and beyond.
