AGE MATRIX

Last update: September 2015
Whenever possible divisions are assigned based on single year age groups. Age groups are based on the birth year matrix for 2015-2016 youth outdoor league (matrix expires after Spring Session 2016):

To qualify for any age group the player’s birth date must fall between the ranges listed below. Sports City allows players up to 3 years younger than the age group to play in a division.
Exceptions:
U6 players must be at least 4 years of age, no younger.
U19 players can be as young as 15 years of age.
Other division players may be up to 3 years younger than the age group they are registering for.

If players are found to be too old or too young for any given age group they will be dropped from the roster and will not be allowed to play. It is the coach’s responsibility to ensure that all players are eligible to play for the age group.

2015-2016 Age Matrix

3 DIVISIONS TO CHOOSE FROM


Leagues will have promotion and relegation to ensure players and teams are, as much as possible, playing against appropriate levels of competition. Many variables go into aligning divisions. Your skill information, although important, does not guarantee the division that your team will be placed into. Every effort will be made to create parity in a division. However, Sports City does not guarantee quality of play. League alignments, times and days of game may vary from session to session in an attempt to balance leagues.

A lower division team may not field more than three (3) players from a higher skill level (to be determined by Sports City). Sports City will determine if a player is too advanced for a league and reserves the right to drop players from the team and forfeit games if necessary. Teams are allowed to play up one age group and down one division for each age group they are playing above their current age group, with approval by Sports City.

Sports City will place teams according to previous indoor session standings and outdoor records as well as the level of rostered players.

  • Division 1: Competitive (A level outdoor and B level outdoor with strong record)
  • Division 2: Intermediate (B level outdoor with average or less record and C level outdoor with strong record)
  • Division 3: Recreational (C level outdoor or teams with poor records as to be determined by Sports City)
U6 COED RULES
  • 5 players on the field per team ( no goal keepers)
  • There is no score kept in the U6 Coed League as this league is reserved for recreational play only.
  • There is no required # of each gender.
