US Soccer Birth Year and Season Matrix

South Texas Youth Soccer Association will be adopting both of the USSF Mandates of Calendar Birth Years and Small-Sided Games Beginning with 2016-17 seasonal year. As such Spindletop Youth Soccer Association and all affiliated clubs including Gulf Coast Youth Soccer Club will also be adopting these changes. The birth year and season matrix below are intended to help parents determine what age group to register their child for. 

When determining the age group for a season, the year the season ends should be used for determining the birth year. Also note that the format “U followed by age” really means that age and younger. For example, U8 should be read as 8 and younger. Players born in the calendar year Jan-Dec 2009 will play U8 for the Fall 2016-Spring 2017 season, U9 for the 2017-2018 season and so on. For more age-group information please reference U.S. Soccer’s Player Development Initiatives. As a club, as well as our local, state and national associations we are mandated to follow the guidelines of the US Soccer Federations and FIFA. Gulf Coast Soccer is committed to helping each child and family adjust to these changes as best we can.
