This season we are going with the birth year matrix for Academy which means that all players with the birth years of 2007-2010 are able to play in the academy program. Please check with your local clubs to ensure that they are able to accept these ages and have teams for them. This can be found by looking at www.aaysa.org and going under the clubs tab to take you to your clubs website, if contact info is needed.
