2016 US Youth Soccer Changes

In 2015, US Soccer (USSF) announced significant changes in the organization of youth soccer, in order to advance the skill and intelligence of youth players, as well as align better with international standards. 

The changes are two-pronged and slated to go into effect for the 2016‑17 season:

I. Small-sided play will be mandated nationally at U12 and below.

II. Age groups will be organized by calendar year birth dates.

Please note that ALL youth soccer clubs MUST implement the mandated changes for the 2016-17 travel league and tournament playing cycle.

This cycle runs from September 1st 2016 to August 31st 2017.
