LBYSO Rec follows US Soccer Federation Player Development Initiatives which specify age divisions, games play rules and coaching requirements. Coaches are volunteers but expected to be certified with US Soccer and Cal South. The rules are subject local modifications by the LBYSO Board.
Divisions are by birth years starting at U6.
Players are allowed to “play up”. For example, a player whose birth year would place them in U8 is allowed to play in U10 provided they are competitively capable.
