Calendar Birth Year Registration Effective August 1st, 2016

Starting the fall of 2016, Michigan Youth Soccer Association, in addition to our local and regional leagues will shift to Calendar Birth Year Registration and will no longer be using the August 1st cutoff date to register players and teams. These changes will be implemented for the tryout of June 2016.

In order to provide our players with the best training and playing environment, we will align with the age group change by offering birth year teams starting August 1st, 2016.

Players will be encouraged to play their own age group, or birth year, however, exceptions will be made based on player development, difficulties in an age group or birth year, and overall team make up. As always, decisions will be made with the best interest of the players and teams in mind.

We believe the age group adjustment will only enhance and improve our club as we continue to strive for the best programs, facilities, coaches and teams. We look at this as an opportunity to improve the quality of our teams and are excited about making the change.

The Charts below show the new age group breakdown in addition to the small sided game mandates that all clubs will comply with starting in June 2016. We thank you for your support to The Michigan Burn and we look forward to a great tryout in June and great soccer for the 2016/2017 season.
