You may have seen US Soccer's decisions on changes to age groupings for youth soccer. Club soccer (GPS, NEFC, Total Soccer, Nor'Easter etc) are moving to birth year cohorts for teams i.e. 2006 Boys, much like ice hockey and swimming. In contrast, DS Soccer town teams play in the BAYS leagues and a league-wide vote took place recently deciding that our DS Soccer teams and opponents will REMAIN school grade based and NOT MOVE to birth year groupings. Age groups that had previously played 6v6 and 8v8 will play 7v7 and 9v9 respectively.
If you have a desire for more detail, email either of the Club co-Presidents.
Respect is central to our club's mission and code of conduct. This excellent slideshow from US Youth Soccer on respecting opponents is worth sharing for players and parents. Please do take at this link http://www.usyouthsoccer.org/10_ways_to_respect_opponents/
