Contact your Age Group Coordinator with questions about age groups, team assignments and coaching.


Age groups are based on the child's age, not by grade. Children must be born within the 12 months prior to the date listed in the "Born Before" column. For example, U6 players for the 2014-2015 season must be born on or after 8/1/2008 and before 8/1/2009.

If requested, children may be allowed to play with their grade instead of their age group.

  • For age groups U6 through U8, children may play with their grade without restriction. Contact the age group coordinator if you have any questions.
  • For age groups U9 through U14, the child must meet league qualifications to be allowed to play with the child's grade. For details on qualifications and waivers, contact the SYSA Registrar: Ellen Faherty at
