Youth Soccer Age Division Chart

The U.S. youth soccer landscape is organized by birth year (not grade). In the past it was August to July which made it a bit confusing. By going to a birth year format, it makes it pretty straight forward for players and parents to understand.

What age group do I register for? In most cases, a club’s season will run from the fall through the next year. Birth year registration should be based on the year in which the season ends. For instance, if a season begins September 2022 and ends in June 2023 then the player should register for a team based on the year 2023. A player who’s birth year is 2009 should register for u14.

Here’s some quick math: 2023 (Year season ends) – 2009 (Birth Year) = u14  (Age Group)

If you’re not the math type, here’s a simple chart to help you understand which age group your player should be registered for.



Note: Due to bio banding rules, there may be cases within a club where an athlete is playing on a younger team. This is mostly due to the biological age being more inline with someone younger.
