In California, children 6 years old as of Sept. 1 are eligible to enter 1st grade, which corresponds to the 7U division. We use that to set the age ranges for 8U and under.
**For 2022 only, players born Sept. – Dec. 2014 can choose to play either in 8U, or the first year of 10U.
- If you choose 8U, they will be with mostly other 2nd graders, and may play in Grad Series in the winter
- If you choose 10U, they play in the competitive league, with scores and standings. They will play in a championship tournament, and can try out for an All-Star team in the winter.
- Historically, most kids in this range choose to play in 10U, with goalkeepers, offside, line referees, and the whole shebang. Some of the Region 13’s strongest alumni were the smallest on their team when they first played in 10U.
You have until July 15, 2022 to decide (email firstname.lastname@example.org). Either way, everyone born in 2014 advances to the second year of 10U for fall of 2023. If you are unsure, please ask the coach staff for advice. Emotional development, interest, and physical ability vary greatly among children, and it’s not uncommon for our youngest (or smallest) players to also be some of the strongest players.
Note also that doing the birth date math hurts the registrar’s head. If he did it wrong, please be understanding, and we’ll fix it.
