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:

 Under 6, Under 8, Under 10, Under 12, Under 14 and Under 16

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:

U6 - Born in 2013 or 2014

U8 - Born in 2011 or 2012

U10 - Born in 2009 or 2010

U12 - Born in 2007 or 2008

U14 - Born in 2005 or 2006

U16 - Born in 2003 or 2004

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.
