What division will your team be placed in?

Because we have AYSO All-Star/Tournament/Select, and Extra and AYSO United club teams, teams will be bracketed as follows. In most age groups we will have Upper and Lower flights, so be sure to provide specific information on your team and make sure you specify if your age group. We want the most competitive matches.

Please note that 11U and 12U will play 9v9 and all players MUST play a minimum of 50% of every game, so teams with large rosters will have to make it work or risk having their game be ruled a forfeit.
