AYSO Region 69: Pacific Palisades/ Brentwood/Topanga



AYSO utilizes so-called “birth year” registration. Under birth year registration, age division is based solely on a player’s date of birth. For example, all players born in 2015 will be in the same age division, regardless of whether they were born in January or December, and also regardless of whether they’re in the same grade at school. The birth year registration system complies with the guidelines of U.S. Soccer, the governing body of soccer in the U.S.

As a rule, AYSO does not allow move ups/downs to a division below a player’s age group. We may, on a RARE case-by-case basis, consider a move up or move down. 

Move down requests are only for players aged 10 or younger, born in the last month of the year, and only with the parents’ acceptance of certain conditions as follows:

  • Once players reach the 12U division age (the year they turn 10), they must play with their age group and cannot play down.
  • As a result, children who play down when they’re younger will have to skip a division later.
  • Skipping a division, and playing with younger kids, can have a negative impact on player development.
Move Up requests are only considered for players born in the first two months of the year. 

Requests are reviewed by members of our board and will be decided on by July 1.
