Looking for the correct program?

Every program is built on the child's birth year. While the official soccer year runs from August 1st through July 31st. Each program is established by birth year. Please see the chart on the left to find what age your child is. 

Example: for the 2020/2021 season children born in 2013 are 8-u. This means they will be 8 years old or under. In other words the child will be tuning 8 during that soccer year.
