Note the change from a school year to birth year calendar, a change mandated by our national and state youth soccer organizations beginning in the 2016-2017 season.

Playing up in the next league is allowed for January-July birth dates based on size and ability but will be  very limited. All play-up requests will be reviewed by and must have the approval of the Deputy Commisioner.

Playing down in a younger league is allowed only for medical reasons, requires a doctor's letter, and the approval of the Commissioner.
