Birth Year explained

A couple years ago, USYS (United States Youth Soccer) made changes to the cutoff date for age divisions.
In order to align our association with USYS, we have changed our soccer age divisions from a SCHOOL YEAR calendar ( August 1st to July 31st ) to a BIRTH/CALENDAR YEAR calendar ( January 1st to December 31st ).
As the age divisions will be based on a player’s year of birth, the divisions and their respective birth years for the upcoming Fall season are listed below.
U14                      1/1/2005 to 12/31/2006
U12                      1/1/2007 to 12/31/2008
U10                      1/1/2009 to 12/31/2010
U8                       1/1/2011 to 12/31/2011
U7                        1/1/2012 to 12/31/2012
U6                        1/1/2013 to 12/31/2013
U5                        1/1/2014 to 12/31/2014
U4                       1/1/2015 to 12/31/2015
