US  Soccer  Age  Group  Changes  for  the  2017  Soccer Season

 

In 2016, US Soccer launched a new initiative nationwide which changed the way in which soccer teams are formed in the country.

Mustang Soccer has implemented the player's age group to be compliant with the US Soccer mandate in ALL divisions for the 2017-2018 season.

Competitive Programs (Comp Elite, Comp Premier, Academy): Registration will be based upon the player's birth year - the year in which the player was born. This change is a result of the US Soccer initiative launched nationwide. For more information, click here

Recreational Programs (Rec, Rec Plus, U6 Ponies): Registration will be based upon an adjusted age group chart to allow classmates to participate together in recreational soccer and give players the flexibility in their playing environment to play in an age group.


Note: We are happy to answer any questions you may have about the changes to the age groups for the upcoming season. Please contact the club registrar, Liz Granados by choosing one of the following:

1. Email anytime at liz@mustangsoccer.com or click here. You will receive a response within 24 hours.
2. Call 925-648-4121 Ext. 19. You will receive a call back within 48 hours.
3. Office hours between 12 pm - 4 pm, Tuesdays, Wednesday, Thursdays, Fridays.


 

Who should register with the league?

EVERY PLAYER must register with the league by age group, regardless of which division the player ends up in. Competitive players may wait to register with the league until after they accept a position on a team.
