SOCCER AGE GROUPS DEFINED: For families new to youth soccer, it is helpful to understand the age group definition which is universally applied.

Age groups start with the letter U which means 'under'. Then comes an age number, i.e. 8. Together it is U8.

The age date in the fall is the following Dec. 31 and remains the same thru the following spring.

SOTH has a policy on playing 'up' - meaning in a higher age bracket - Click here to see the policy.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SPORTS ON THE HILL SOCCER is for ages 3 to 18 years old and for 2 outdoor seasons, Fall and Spring. The Fall season runs from early September to mid-November. The Spring season runs from late March to mid-June. Indoor soccer is played in January and February on Saturday or Sundays.

Rain is not inclement weather. Games will be played unless cancelled due to heavy rain, electrical storms, or field condition. DO NOT assume that games will be cancelled if it is raining or forecast to rain. If in doubt, check the home page for cancellations or with your coach or commissioner.
