Windsor Youth Soccer League

Player Ages

How are players selected?

They simply sign up. This is Recreational Soccer. There are no try-outs and no cuts. Every player plays. There are six age groups for each gender:

 2014/2015, 2012/2013, 2010/2011, 2008/2009, 2006/2007 and 2004/2005

How are the age groups determined?

US Soccer has recently mandated that age groups be changed to calendar year birthdates rather than "school year" birthdates. The new age groups are listed below:

Born in 2014 or 2015 - used to be called U6

Born in 2012 or 2013 - used to be called U8

Born in 2010 or 2011 - used to be called U10

Born in 2008 or 2009 - used to be called U12

Born in 2006 or 2007 - used to be called U14

Born in 2004 or 2005 - used to be called U16

How do I demonstrate proof of age?

All new players must submit a copy of their birth certificate as proof of age upon registration. If you register at walk-in, please bring a copy of your child's birth certificate. If you register online, you will be asked to mail or deliver a copy of your child's birth certificate to the League Registrar. You may hand-deliver it or mail it to the WYSL Registrar at the mailing address on the home page.
