SLSG Illinois Girls Announce Birth Year ID Sessions

02/06/16SLSG-IL

As indicated in previous communications and our “State of the Club” meetings on February 5th, changes are on the horizon for the upcoming 2016-2017 season as US Soccer mandated player initiatives will be implemented across the United States starting in the fall of 2016.

The most discussed of these new player development initiatives is the Birth Year Player Registration Mandate. Beginning in the Fall of 2016, SLSG Illinois will form all teams in compliance with the US Soccer mandate on Birth Year Player Registration. This means that teams will be formed by the year in which players are born. As such, registration for each age group will now range from January 1st of a given year to December 31st of that same year.

Starting this month and running throughout the spring, SLSG Illinois will be holding player ID sessions to evaluate players within their birth year age group. A complete schedule and links to register can be found by clicking on the fliers below.

High School Girls ID Sessions

Each player needs to register for his respective birth year, regardless of the team for which he currently plays. We are asking that you have this link complete by Monday, February 8th, 2016.

Given each birth year currently spans two age groups (i.e. player born in 2002 could be a U13 or a U14), we believe that starting this process now will ensure that our staff is able to place each player in an environment that will maximize their potential for development during the 2016-2017 season.

If you have any questions about this information or the process, please contact:
