U.S. Soccer Announces Youth Development Changes

By Legacy AZ Soccer, 03/06/16, 8:30PM MST


Dear Legacy Family,

As you may have heard, the United States Soccer Federation (USSF) recently announced that beginning in 2017-18, teams will be aligned based on calendar birth year (January 1 - December 31) versus the current August 1 - July 31. In response, United States Youth Soccer (USYS) decided to enact this change in 2016-2017.

Legacy is a member of the USYS by way of the Arizona Youth Soccer Association (AYSA) and will comply. However, there are tools the club can employ to lessen the impact on our members as we transition. The board and the director of coaching will review every option to create the most value to our members. We will share this information with you very soon.

In the meantime, thank you for helping us Build A Legacy.
