The Future of the Rec Program in the WSA

WSA – Recreational Soccer Program – 2017/18

US Soccer has outlined initiatives which have an impact on the age group definitions used to determine where players place in our recreational program.

Previously, age groups were determined based on players born between Aug. 1 and July 31. As of Fall of 2016, age groups will be determined by the calendar year in which a player was born between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31.

How will these changes impact the recreational program?

As an interested player you just have to go through the grid to determine what age group you qualify for, for the 2017-2018 season.

Below a grid which shows clearly where players place come the Fall of 2017.
