Pleasanton Rage is required to follow US Soccer age group definitions.
These age group definition changes are necessary to align RAGE with other local clubs, and US Soccer with international standards.
For the Recreational program, some age groups are combined to optimize the number of players in a given group. Typical groupings:
U6 contains U5 and U6 players
- U12 = U11,12
- U14 = U13,14
- U16 = U15,16
- U19 = U17,18,19
Note that any request to play in an age group other than the player’s natural age group must be made through the Playing Up Request Form and approved by Rage Staff. Playdown requests can be considered only for players with a diagnosed disability.
