The 2016-2017 soccer year marked a return to using the calendar year for determination of player age. This change had the potential of disqualifying players born between 08/01/1999 and 12/31/1999 that would have been eligible for U17 play in the 2017 Presidents Cup. To avoid penalizing these players, the oldest eligible age group for youth play was changed to “U17/18.” Rosters in this age group may include players born on or after 08/01/1999. This applies only to Presidents Cup competition, not to league play and only applies to the current seasonal year.
