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 was a required change with the 2017/2018 season, but the Wisconsin Youth Soccer Association determined the best option for the clubs in our state was to implement the changes immediately instead of phasing them in slowly over two years. 

This change went in to effect for the 2016/2017 season, which began on 8/1/2016.
