PA West, our Club's governing body has adopted the calendar year method for grouping players in each Division. This translates to your child's birth year, not birth date, to determine which Division he/she will play in.
The ages for each Division are as follows:
U6 - 4 & 5 yrs. old (2011 & 2012 birth yr.)
U8 - 6 & 7 yrs. old (2009 & 2010 birth yr.)
U10 - 8 & 9 yrs. old (2007 & 2008 birth yr.)
U12 - 10 & 11 yrs. old (2005 & 2006 birth yr.)
U14 - 12 & 13 yrs. old (2003 & 2004 birth yr.)
U16 - 14 & 15 yrs. old (2001 & 2002 birth yr.)
Example: This is the 2016 calendar year, a child's birth date is March 26, 2006. 2016-2006=10yrs. old, thus U12 Division.
Due to this mid-year change, some players will be moving up a Division from which the played in the Spring Session. As a result of 4 year olds moving up to the U6 Division, ABE Soccer Association has decided to discontinue the Little Kickers program until further notice.
