Maximum Ages for Each Division: The league age groups are based on the seasonal year rather than birth year or grades. That is, each group has a maximum age as of August 1 of a given year. If your child is older than the maximum age for a particular age group, the league will not allow us to register them for that age group regardless of grade. We have no discretion to waive this rule. Age group maximums mandated by the league are as follows:
For 2013-2014 Season
U- 8 teams children born between 8/1/05 - 7/31/06
U-9 teams children born between 8/1/04 - 7/31/05
U-10 Teams children born between 8/1/03 - 7/31/04
U-11 Teams children born between 8/1/02 - 7/31/03
U-12 Teams children born between 8/1/01 - 7/31/02
U-13 Teams children born between 8/1/00 - 7/31/01
U-14 Teams children born between 8/1/99 - 7/31/00
For the 2013-2014 season, SYSC will continue to permit players who are young for their grade (ie born after July 31) to play "up" to their grade. However, we strongly encourage all players to play with their age group which is consistent with other clubs and is best for player development.
Very strong players who wish to try out for older age groups are permitted to do so only with prior permission form the AGC's and Director of Coaching.
