What is Club Soccer?

What are the age groups for Club Soccer?
Club soccer teams are based on the birth year of the player. For example, if your son or daughter was born in March of 2008, they would tryout out for the 2008 boys or girl’s teams. Players must tryout for their own age group. Players can not tryout for different age groups even if their friends are a different birth year.
When are tryouts for Club Teams?
Club tryouts are at the end of April and early May each year. Tryouts can be held during the season if a team has an open roster spot. To contact the club coach in your birth year please click here.
