Divisions are determined by the grade level of your child during the session they will play. For example, if your daughter will be in second grade in the upcoming fall session, choose “2nd Grade Girls” when you register.

Soccer leagues generally refer to divisions by age and list the “Under X” division name as well as a reference. Age-based divisions generally follow grade level because the birthday cut-off date is similar those used by most schools. We show the grade(s) generally corresponding to each Under (“U”) division in the table below.

Division > Grade
U19 > High School
U14 > 8th
U13 > 7th
U12 > 6th
U11 > 5th
U10 > 4th
U9 > 3rd
U8 > 2nd
U7 > 1st
U6 > K
U5 > Pre-K

What happened to the age-based divisions (U6,U7,U8 etc.)?

Age-based divisions work well for keeping teams even, but cause problems when kids can’t play with classmates. Switching to grade level classifications should also eliminate some confusion which tends to cause last-minute shuffling of players. The grade level classifications help simplify the team-building process for our division coordinators.
