San Carlos AYSO

Ages, Divisions and Eligibility


All new players, and players not registered in the previous Fall San Carlos program, must provide verification of birth date in order to complete their registration.

Contact your division coordinator with any questions.  Division coordinators can be found at Board Roster.

AYSO now follows birth year based registration.  This means that the effective date for age determination for registration is the player’s age as of December 31st of year with the fall season. So, for the Fall 2021 season, your child will be placed in a division based on their age on Dec 31st, 2021.

Here is a breakdown of the new age chart and the new divisions for Fall 2021:

Playground (3 year olds):  Born between 1/1/2018 – 9/8/2018.  Your player must be 3 by September 11, 2021
5U (4 year olds):  Born 2017
6U (5 year olds):  Born 2016
7U (6 year olds):  Born in 2015
8U (7 year olds):  Born in 2014
10U (9 and 8 year olds):  Born in 2012 or 2013
12U (11 and 10 year olds):  Born in 2010 or 2011
14U (13 and 12 year olds):  Born in 2008 or 2009
16U (15 and 14 year olds):  Born in 2006 or 2007
19U (18, 17 and 16 year olds):  Born 2003, 2004 or 2005

AYSO does not allow “play downs.”  If you would like to request a “play up,” those requests must be made at one of our in person registration events.  Play ups will be evaluated on a case by case basis and must be approved by the Regional Commissioner.  Players may not skip an entire division.

The age guide is for games and competitions that begin or or after Aug. 1st, 2021 and end by July 31st, 2022.
