Washington Youth Soccer and US Youth Soccer group players by age to ensure a fair and competitive playing environment.
All players on a team need to be under (abbreviated by "U") the required age on July 31st of that year. Note that the age grouping does not match completely with the Shoreline Public School age calendar. It occasionally happens that a child may not be able to play with the other children in their school grade. This usually happens when a child has a birthday in August or September.
Your child may ONLY register for his/her appropriate age. Even if he/she played up last year. Age level adjustments will be made by the registrar. Make requests in the comment area when registering.
You need to provide a photo copy of your BIRTH CERTIFICATE in order to play. Please email a scanned copy or photo of your child’s birth certificate to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail to Hillwood Soccer Club PO Box 60226, Shoreline,WA 98160. You may black out personal information other than the name and birthdate. Players will not be placed on a team until age has been verified.
The chart below shows the Under team levels. Where the month and year of your child's birth intersectd is the "U" age group for your child's registration.
