AYSO utilizes a so-called “birth year” registration. Under birth year registration, division is determined solely based on a player’s date of birth, so for example, all players born in 2010 will be in the same age group, regardless of whether they were born in January, 2010 or December, 2010, and also regardless of whether they’re in the same grade at school. The birth year registration system complies with the new guidelines of U.S. Soccer, the governing body of soccer in the U.S.
As a rule, AYSO does not allow move-downs to a division below a player’s age group. We may, on a case by case basis, consider move-down requests based on grade, but only for players age 9 or younger. All such requests must be made no later than July 31 in order to be considered. Please CLICK HERE to submit your request.
