Age Groups Eligibility

The soccer year runs from January 1st through July 31st.  Players are grouped on teams based on their age as of the first day of the soccer year.  The “U” in the age group name refers to “Under.”  Players remain in that age group for the remainder of the soccer year even if they have had a birthday and are no longer “under” that age.    As an example a U12 player with an October birthday who was 11 years old on the first day of the soccer year would play in U12 for both the Fall and Spring season even though they are 12 years old when the Spring season starts.  Players within one month of the cut-off for an age group (i.e. august birthdays) may elect to play up in the next higher group (please send an email to registrar@somervillesoccer.us before you register).  To determine which age group your player should register for please see below
