Age Group Guidelines for House Soccer

Age Group Guidelines provides information on which age group division your player is eligible to play in House Soccer.

Age Group Guidelines only apply to U4 Cubs and the U5-U19 House League. TOPSoccer and Parent League players are not impacted.

Cutoff Dates and Eligibility 

VYS House Players continue to follow the traditional school year calendar (August 1 to July 31) to determine age groups and divisions to enable our recreation players the advantage of playing with their school friends throughout the year.

Grade Level Exception

Since the Virginia school cutoff date is September 30, VYS allows players born after August 1 and before October 1 to choose whether they would prefer playing with kids their age or with kids in their grade, otherwise known as the Grade Level Exception rule. During online registration, a parent whose child is eligible for Grade Level Exception, can choose either Age or Grade on the registration form so the VYS Registrar is aware and the parent is asked to send an email to the VYS Registrar as further notification.

For questions about Age Group Guidelines or Grade Level Exception, please contact the VYS Registrar at
