West Valley Soccer League: Recreational Age Groups

What division will my child play in Fall 2019 Spring 2019

WE PLAY 1 YEAR DIVISIONS (Season year is Fall 18 & Spring 19)

US soccer has decided to change some of the rules in youth soccer (Fall 2017)

The biggest change is that registration will be based on calendar year instead of August 1st through July 31st

West Valley Soccer league have decided to grandfather all returning age groups / teams and continue using the August 1st through July 31st registration process.

The only difference is how we define your team

If your child's birthday is between January 1st and July 31st the application from Cal South will have the younger age bracket printed on the form please ignore
You are playing in division 9 the Cal South form will have U8 instead of U9

New teams that are starting in 2014, 2013, 2012 and 2011 will be based on the calendar year registration

Cal South does not allow a child to play below his/her age group regardless of size or experience for insurance purposes.
