What Age Division is My Child?

Do you wonder how kids are placed in U6, U8, U10, U12, etc.? In US Youth Soccer the division for a player is based on their date of birth and the date of importance is August 1, which is the transition date from one age division to the next. A player born on July 31 is in one division while a child born one day later on August 1 would be in the next lower division. Basically to figure the division for your child in a particular season, you take the age in years of the player as of the July 31 prior to that season and this is used to determine U6 (under 6 for 4 and 5 year olds), U8 (under 8 for 6 and 7 year olds), etc. 

Still unsure? If so, then go to the following website and enter your child's date of birth and it will tell you the single year age division for your child. Since divisions are 2-year divisions, both U7 and U8 players would be in the U8 division and so on.
