US Soccer Player Development Announcement

US Soccer has announced new player development initiatives focusing on player age grouping based on calendar year, as well as number of players on the field and rostered on a team. 

The initiative is a required change with the 2017/2018 season, but the Wisconsin Youth Soccer Association has determined the best option for the clubs in our state is to implement the changes for this upcoming year instead of phasing them in slowly over two years. 

This change will go in to effect for the 2016/2017 season, which begins on 8/1/2016. The upcoming 2016 spring season WILL NOT BE AFFECTED BY THIS CHANGE.
