Player birth year is used to determine which league they play in. The ‘u’ in the u10 designation stands for UNDER 10 as of the end of the year. See our birth year matrix for more information about Academy and In-House designations, or visit our Travel page for info about travel teams.
Note: Players may decide to “play up” in an older age group if the parents choose to do so. Players may not “play down” in a younger age group for any reason.
