United Soccer League

Frequently Asked Questions


What age group is my child?

The soccer calendar cut off date is July 31st, 2016 for the 2016-2017 season.  Your child's age on that day will determine which age group they will be placed in.  i.e. your child is 7 years old as of July 31st 2016 - He would be placed in the UNDER 8 age group (or U8), because he was UNDER 8 years old as of July 31st, 2016.  Another example:  Your child is 10 years old as of July 31st 2016 - She would be placed in the UNDER 11 age group (or U11), because she was Under 11 years old as of July 31st, 2016.  These age groups are effective for the entire 2016-2017 season (FALL AND SPRING).

Do I have to live in a specific community in order to play in the United Soccer League?

  • No, however games and practices are held in these locations.

Why do we play small sided games and not 11 against 11 at the younger age groups?

  • Small sided games (3 v 3 for the Under-5, 4v4 for Under 6, 5 v 5 for the Under 7-8 and 7v7 for Under 9 and Under 10 and 9 v 9 for the Under 11-Under 1 ) afford the players more touches on the ball and a chance to make more decisions with the ball at their feet.  This leads to quicker player development and more enjoyment of the game. 
  •  Where is skill training held?

    Skill training is held at Magahay Elementary (see FIELD MAPS link above for more details)

Who can come to skill training?

  • All USL players U5 to U14

What is the Refund Policy?

  • Registration Refunds requested on or before July 15th, 2016  will be granted MINUS a $10 administrative fee.  ABSOLUTELY NO REFUNDS will be given if a request is made July 16th, 2016 or later.

Can a team be made with 5 (or more) friends, or can my child play with a friend?

  • Players can request to play with friends, a coach, etc.  There are two special request fields when signing up.  Most of the 1st requests are granted, and several of the 2nd requests too!  We want to ensure that every player enjoys their experience in USL so we try our best to keep friends together as long as parity within the league does not suffer.

Can my child play UP an age group?
You can request your child to play up on the online registration form.  It is highly discouraged by the league coaching director as development usually suffers when this happens, but most of these requests are granted.
