Age Guide & MY2022 Chart

Registration Age Breakdown

AYSO registration will be based upon a birth year registration in order to align with other  American youth soccer program providers interpretation of the U.S. Soccer Player Development Initiatives.

The effective date of age determination for registration shall be the player's age as of December 31 looking ahead of the Membership Year.  Example: For MY2022 the division the child will be placed in  will be determined based on their age on December 31, 2022. 

How does it really work? Registration for MY2022 for a player that is presently 11 and turns 12 at any time in 2022 will be in the 12U division.  If a player is presently 12, but turns 13 during the fall of 2022- or in 2022, s/he will be in 14U, unless a program has a 13U division.

When registering your child for AYSO MY2022, the impact of the new Age Guide is shown in the chart to the right:

During the registration, you will see only the division based on the participant’s date of birth. 

Please Note: Due to the change in the registration age cut-off for AYSO, returning players born on or after August 1 will experience “skipping” ahead  by one season to align to the new Age Guide which is now based on their birth year.
