US Club Soccer (aka NorCal) will implement new U.S. Soccer player development standards in two phases

In contrast to Cal North/CYSA, US Club Soccer will make changes in two phases:

  • transition from school-year based (Aug 1 – July 31) to calendar-year based (Jan 1 – Dec 31) by Aug 1, 2016.
  • small-sided games, which also includes changes to field and goal sizes, by Aug 1, 2017.

If able to do so, member clubs are encouraged to implement these initiatives prior to the mandates coming into full effect.

Player pass cards will continue to be issued based on an Aug 1 to July 31 competition season.
