The United States Soccer Federation (USSF) has mandated that a team’s age group be determined by the January 1-December 31 Calendar-Year and not by the August 1-July 31 Seasonal -Year now in place. .Therefore, this fall WSC teams will play in the following age groups for the 2017-2018 Seasonal Year:
Age Oldest Player’s
Group Birth Year
As it is now, a player will be allowed to play in an older age group. However, no player will be permitted to compete in a younger age group.
Making the USSF mandated change – which is a return to the calendar-year determination used some years ago - brings the US in line with other soccer playing nations and our own Olympic Development Program.
