A Level of Play for Everyone

AGE GROUP POLICY/RULES


New Classic Age group policy (effective beginning Fall 2018)

Effective Fall 2018, US Soccer (our National Governing Body) 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. 

Starting with the Fall 2018/Spring 2019 seasonal year, formation of MSI Classic teams in age groups began being based upon the US Soccer guidelines, with an important caveat:  MSI decided to allow a maximum 6-month birth date allowance to facilitate existing rosters with "same-grade" players to continue playing with their classmates.  The primary reason for this amended rule was to enable pre-existing MSI Classic teams to continue with their roster (i.e., not forcing previously-rostered players to be removed from the team, so long as they met the qualifications noted below).  This amended rule will continue in force for future seasons.
