Need help determining your soccer player's age group?

Age Group Chart

What does "U8" or "U12" (etc) mean?

"U8" is short for "My soccer age is Under 8".

When determining the age group for a season, the year the season ends should be used for determining the birth year. Also note that the format "U followed by age" really means that age and younger. For example, U8 should be read as 8 and younger. For more age-group information please reference U.S. Soccer's Player Development Initiatives.

Please use the matrix below to line up your child's birth year, which will show the specific age group for a given season.
