Fall/Spring Season for youth players ages 4 years- 15 years of age.

Due to the change in the birth years, we will now be using “U” in the league name.For example, U4 is to be read as 4 years old and younger.It is the second year of a split-year season (2016/17) that determines what number should be used to calculate age group. Example: 2017 – U4 = 2013

2016/17 Season
