Grade-Based Groupings

In response to new youth age-grouping mandates announced last year by the US Soccer Federation, Mass Youth Soccer and Middlesex Youth Soccer League have updated their age group registration guidelines to account for both school grade and birth year.

Starting with the Fall 2016 season, Wakefield Soccer will follow these guidelines, organizing our programs by both school grade and birth year and renaming them to be grade-based rather than age-based.

This change will have minimal impact on players and simply aligns us with other state programs.
