Soccer Age Changes for Fall 2016

The United States Soccer Federation (U.S. Soccer) has announced required changes for youth soccer that will impact teams and soccer clubs throughout the United States beginning in the 2016 Fall season. These mandates are NOT specific to AC United but will impact ALL travel soccer clubs.

While there are several new changes, the most significant impact for our club is the change in age groupings. Previously age groups were determined August to July, which generally matches school years. For example, this past season, a U13 team could have anyone UNDER 13 on August 1, 2015 (mostly 7th graders). This is being shifted to calendar year, so next season U13 will be UNDER 13 on Jan 1, 2017 (or anyone born in 2004).

See here for a full age chart.

Note it may appear that some children will jump ahead two years, but that is not the case. There is just a shift in the definition of the age divisions to calendar year.

What does this mean for you as an AC United player/parent?

Most of our teams consist of players born in different years. Although we encourage players to play within their age group, we understand that our club is a community-based organization and established teams may want to stay together if possible.

In order to support this concern, players will be allowed to try out for their age group as well as the age group above them (the guidelines have always allowed players to "play up" but no one can "play down"). For example, if a player was born in April of 2004 she will be in the U12 age group. If she wishes (say because most of her current team will now be U13), she may try out for both U12 and U13 age groups. Note, at a minimum, players MUST attend their age-appropriate evaluations in addition to the older group if so desired.

As in the past, teams will still be created based on skill and distribution of players to make teams across ages. There really can be no guarantee that teams will stay intact but allowing players to evaluate at multiple age groups will provide a chance for maintaining team synergy from last year. We think this is a good balance of following the new guidelines while supporting players who still want to play with their current teammates.

We have consulted with other surrounding clubs, and while some are changing to strict adherence to the new guidelines, others are taking this more flexible approach. There will be more information coming in February or March on specifics of evaluation dates but we wanted to make everyone aware of these changes and how they impact our, and all, clubs.

If you have any questions on these changes, please feel free to contact info@acunited.net or your current coach. For further information on the reason and details of the changes, see the EPYSA web site.

U12 Boys Maroon Take 1st Place in Division with Undefeated Record

Our U12 Boys Maroon went undefeated on the season with a 9-0-1 record to take the championship in their division. The team gave up only 10 goals during the 10 game season recording 3 shutouts and never allowing more than 2 goals in any game.

Four weeks into the season the boys had to defend their 3-0 record against the only other undefeated team in the division. And the boys prevailed with a 4-0 victory to keep it going. They were 8-0-0 going into the 9th game when the Fairmount Falcons handed them a tough 1-1 tie. The boys were down 1-0 but tied it in the second half to preserve their undefeated record and also clinch the top spot in the division in the same game. The boys topped it off with a 3-0 victory in their last game to finish the season at 9-0-1.

Congrats to U12 Boys Maroon on their excellent and undefeated season.

U12 Girls and U14 Boys Find Success at 2015 Jack Walsh Tournament

Several AC United teams once again participated in the Jack Walsh Memorial tournament in October. Two of our teams went undefeated to win their brackets and advance to the championship round. The U12 Girls Maroon won the championship in the silver division. The girls finished their bracket with a 2-0-1 record with 6 goals for and 2 against and went on to win the championship match with a tight 1-0 victory over Pennridge. After winning their bracket with a 3-0-0 record with 11 goals for and 2 against, our U14 Boys Maroon dropped a tough 2-0 loss in the finals to Springfield FC Wolves taking second place in the silver division.

2014/2015 Year in Review

We had another great year at AC United.

During the 2014 fall season, the U11 Girls Maroon, in their first year with the club, went undefeated (9-0-1) to take first place in their division. The U12 Boys Maroon also continued their success by grabbing first place in their new division with a 6-1-3 record. Both of our U12 Girls teams placed second in their respective divisions with 5-2-3 (Maroon) and 7-1-2 (White) records.

After a slow start to the season settling for losses in the first two games, the U15 Boys Maroon turned up the heat with a 7-1 record in the last last 8 games. Five of the wins were "shut-outs" and the team went undefeated at home for the season.

Our girls emphasized strong defensive play with three of our teams finishing with an average of less than one goal against per game. Both of our U12 Girls teams and the U14 Girls Maroon allowed only 9 goals in a 10 game season.

In tournament play, all of our teams participated in the always competitive 23rd Annual Hunter Jack Walsh Memorial Tournament held mid season and some of our teams played in various other tournaments.

The U11 Boys Maroon kicked off the 2014 season with a first place finish at the 26th Annual Colleen Reilly Soccer Tournament in Horsham at the end of August. The Maroon boys went undefeated 3-0 in their bracket and allowed only one goal against. At mid season, the U12 Boys Maroon took the top spot (posting a 2-1-0 record) in the U12 Boys Silver division at Jack Walsh Memorial Tournament. After some great effort, two of our teams met heartbreak, just merely missing placement in two separate tournaments. The U11 Boys were back at it in November going 2-1-0 at the 2nd Annual CRUSA/FC Bucks Adidas Classic but just missed getting into the championship round by a three-way tie-breaker that was decided on goals against. The U15 Boys Maroon played in the 2014 Warrington City Classic over Thanksgiving and made it to the final with a 0-0 tie. They then lost in the shoot out by one goal. Even with the heartbreak, both teams showed poise and stood proud on their effort for the day.

This past winter our U11 Girls had a guest practice with Maddy Evans of the Boston Breakers of the Woman's Professional Soccer league. As a child, Maddy played at the Ardsley North Hills Athletic Association and played at Penn State before going pro.

Many of our teams also played indoor at YSC or SMG and are participating in the Rock Spring League. The U12 Girls Maroon team took first place in the U12 Division (Boards) at YSC, defeating 3 competitive teams (including a tight overtime victory against our own U12 Girls White) for the championship, on Tuesday, April 4, 2015.

And everyone is looking forward to another fun-filled 2015 season.
