What "U" or age group is my child???
 
According to NJ Youth Soccer guidelines, player years begin on Jan.1 and end on Dec. 31.
... see the chart below.
 
   What does the 'U' mean?
The 'U' stands for 'under'...so, for example:
-U15 usually consists of players that are 14 and some that turn 15 during that year.
-U14 usually consists of players that are 13 and some that turn 14 during that year.

Birth Year and Season Matrix

When determining the age group for a season, the year the season ends should be used for determining the birth year.

Also note that the format “U followed by age” really means that age and younger.

For example, U8 should be read as 8 and younger.
