2019-2020 Age/Division Chart

2019-2020 Age Description Chart

Notes Regarding the Age Chart Below:

  • Age groups overlap either by six months for 5U-10U, or one year for 10U-19U. This allows players to play up one division, if they desire, without AYSO Madison board approval to be able to play with their school classmates or if they prefer more of a challenge
  • Age group is determined by the player's age as of December 31, 2020, not 2019. Therefore, a 6-year-old player is playing in a 7U or 8U division


Registration Age Breakdown

Registration Age Breakdown

AYSO has changed from a school-year registration to birth-year in order to align with other American Youth Soccer program providers interpretation of the U.S. Soccer Player Development initiatives.

The effective date of age determination for registration is the player's age as of December 31 looking ahead of the Membership Year. Example: For MY2019, the division the child will be placed in will be determined based on their age on December 31, 2020. 

Participants who turn four years of age between January 1 and December 31 are eligible for AYSO Playground soccer. 

To help determine the proper age and division for players, the following chart is provided and guidelines and rules are as follows from U.S. Soccer. CLICK HERE

How Does it Really Work?

Registration for MY2019 for a player that is presently 11-years-old and turns 12 at any time in 2020, will be in the 12U division. If a player is presently 12-years-old, but turns 13 during the fall of 2019 or in 2020, s/he will be in the 14U division.
