Birth Year explained

A number of years ago, USYS (United States Youth Soccer) made changes to the cutoff date for determining age divisions.
See the below graphic to determine your child’s eligibility and age bracket.
As the age divisions will be based on a player’s year of birth, the divisions and their respective birth years for the upcoming Spring 2022 season are listed below.
