Move-Up Guidelines

The purpose of this policy is to establish guidance and procedures for cases where a Region 92 player may wish to move-up to a Division above of his or her age group. The standard within Region 92 is that players are assigned to the Division established for their age group. “League Age” in each division is determined by the birth date of the player as of July 31.

Player Ratings Policy

The purpose of rating players is to evaluate their overall soccer ability in order to assemble balanced teams (one of the six AYSO philosophies).  Although a player’s physical attributes and coordination will change between soccer seasons, an honest assessment of each player’s current ability is critical to maintain the integrity of the team formation process.
