US Soccer Player Development Initiatives

East Central Statement regarding Player Initiatives


This statement has been put together to help the soccer community in the East Central Soccer District understand the changes taking place for the 2016-2017 soccer season. Realize not every question will be addressed here but we will try to cover the most important items as they pertain to your child and their team.

While US Soccer Federation is giving the youth soccer communities until the Fall 2017/Spring 2018 season to come into compliance with the new initiatives, the East Central Soccer District, as directed by WI Youth Soccer (WYSA) will be implementing the new initiatives for the Fall 2016/Spring 2017 soccer season.

The initiative to move to the Birth Year Registration was set forth by US Soccer and effects how players are registered . . . . .  Click to read full Statement
