House Divisions (What is the commitment level for my player's age group?)

VYS House Soccer divisions run from U5 - U19.  Players are first grouped by age.  Commissioners then try to form teams of equal strength using schools and neighborhoods as guidelines. The following chart provides information about how teams are formed for each division and their typical game and practice expectations.

To supplement the House League, players are invited to register for training programs: Development Center (U6 - U10), Goalkeeper (U9-U12) and Summer Camps.
