Back to LAFC So Cal Youth Rec Home page (Click Here)

WE PLAY 1 YEAR DIVISIONS (Season year is Fall 21 & Spring 22)

US soccer has decided to change some of the rules in youth soccer (Fall 2017) The biggest change is that registration will be based on calendar year instead of August 1st through July 31st

West Valley Soccer league has decided to grandfather all returning age groups / teams (2010 and up) and continue using the August 1st through July 31st registration process.

The only difference is how we define your team

If your child's birthday is between January 1st and July 31st the application from Cal South will have the younger age bracket printed on the form please ignore. You are playing in division 11 the Cal South form will have U10 instead of U11 

New teams that are starting in 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012 and 2011 will be based on the calendar year registration

 

US Club Soccer does not allow a child to play below his/her age group regardless of size or experience for insurance purposes.
