Every Fall the FYSA Age Chart changes for the upcoming year. The age guidelines are passed down from the Alaska Youth Soccer Association and the National US Youth Soccer Association. The Age Chart that we follow are National Guidelines.
The Age Chart is effective yearly, starting September 1st through August 31st.
FYSA approves very few play-up requests due to our guidelines; youth should play in their assigned age group. For further details on the Age Chart or for general questions please contact FYSA at 456-3976 or email.
