Age Group Chart
The Florida Youth Soccer Associations (FYSA) has implemented a change in the age group boundaries, moving away from the school year age groups to a birth year age groups. See a table to determine what age group is appropriate for your player. Be sure to look down the 2018-19 (middle column) for this year’s ages (For example, Birth year 2008 is playing U12 this year for The Spring League.
We will be playing the following Age Groups for Spring League 2019:(This corresponds to the middle column, below)
U6- Birth Years 2013-14; U8- Birth Years 2011-12; U10-Birth Years 2009-10; U12-Birth Years 2007-8; U14-2005-2006
Note: 2015 Birth year players are too young to play in the Spring league w/ the U6 age group due to their young age (they are true U4); Sorry, we can’t have 3 year olds playing w/ 6 year olds. It is too dangerous.
Common Questions With age groups:
-My son should be U7. Instead, registration is only allowing him to play U8… Why?
Rec Soccer’s age brackets are U5, U6, U8, U10, U12 and U14. Since you cannot “play down,” the registration system will force the player to play up instead.
-What does the “T” stand for after U14, U16, U19?
The “T” stands for TARSA; which is Tampa Area Recreational Scheduling Association. For more info on this click HERE
TARSA is not involved for the Spring League.
