New Classic Age group policy for Fall 2018

New Age Group Designations

US Soccer (our National Governing Body) has adopted a new approach to describing age groups for youth soccer, basing those age groups on the year in which each child was born.  MSI believes that it is important to continue facilitating the organization of community-based teams so that kids may play with their classmates at both the Classic League and Recreational League levels of play. 

For Fall 2018 / Spring 2019 seasons, formation of our new Classic U10 Age Group teams will include players as follows:

·         Players born in calendar year 2009

·         Players born between July 1, 2008 and December 31, 2008, so long as those players are enrolled in 4th grade (the primary grade for the U10 Age Group)

Other Age Groups will stair-step up one year at a time, but importantly, you will be able to roster your teams with the same players you have had in the past. 

·         U11 Age Group includes players born in calendar year 2008, or between July 1 and December 31, 2007, so long as those players are enrolled in 5th grade (the primary grade for the U11 Age Group)

·         U12 Age Group includes players born in calendar year 2007, or between July 1 and December 31, 2006, so long as those players are enrolled in 6th grade (the primary grade for the U12 Age Group)

·         U13 Age Group includes players born in calendar year 2006, or between July 1 and December 31, 2005, so long as those players are enrolled in 7th grade (the primary grade for the U13 Age Group)

·         U14 Age Group includes players born in calendar year 2005, or between July 1 and December 31, 2004, so long as those players are enrolled in 8th grade (the primary grade for the U14 Age Group)

·         U15 Age Group includes players born in calendar year 2004, or between July 1 and December 31, 2003, so long as those players are enrolled in 9th grade (the primary grade for the U15 Age Group)

·         And so on …



Please review the following information before registering your team!

To register for the Spring or Fall Classic League, a team's MSI coach/manager must complete the team application and submit a check for the appropriate amount to the MSI Office by the stated team registration deadline.  

Individuals who wish to coach in the Classic program should review the information on the Classic FAQ page and submit their application by the posted coach application deadline.

Unlike MSI Recreational Soccer, players do not register through the MSI Office for participation in the MSI Classic League.  After trying out for and being selected to play for a MSI Classic team, players are registered through their team's coach/manager.  Please see the Classic Player Registration page of the MSI website. Players in the U10 and U11 age groups generally need to complete the MSI Classic Skills Evaluation and be rated into the Classic Player Pool in order to be eligible to try out for a Classic team.  Each Classic team has a limited number of Wild Cards that they may use to roster a player who has not been rated into the Classic Player Pool, as well.  For additional information about registering for the Classic Skills Evaluation, please visit the Skills Evaluation Process page of the MSI website.

Important Notes Regarding Deadlines, Fees, and Carding of Players

The deadlines for team registration are as indicated below. Timely registration and fee payment for teams is critical for divisional planning and scheduling purposes.  Please be considerate of the other teams and register and submit fee payment on time.  Registration and payment of fee after the payment deadline will be assessed a $150 late fee.

For all teams, the team registration fees include "carding" of players up to the maximum roster size.  Additional players rostered throughout the Seasonal Year will be assessed a "carding fee" of $16/player.  None of this may be construed as allowing rosters to exceed the stated maximum at any given point during the Seasonal Year.

For player registration for U15/above teams, league rules allow for rostering of additional player.  The team registration fees include "carding" of 18 players, and additional players over that amount will be assessed a "carding fee" of $16/player. The assessment of any additional "carding fee" is based upon the cumulative number of players rostered to a team throughout the Seasonal Year.
