US Youth Soccer has shifted from school year to calendar (birth) year for age group placement. Previously age groups were determined based on players born between August 1 and July 31. The change to calendar (birth) year will mean age groups will be determined based on players birth year. Note that the format “U followed by age” now means that age and younger. For example, U8 now means 8 and younger. BFC is implementing this change starting with the 2016 fall season.
