Use the 'check boxes' to select the age group(s) of the team(s) the player is interested in being placed. Players should be prepared to attend at least one placement session within their birth year format to allow coaches the best opportunity to observe and place them accurately on an team.

In 2016, the United States Soccer Federation (USSF) mandated a change in how teams are formed, switching from a “school year” calendar, (August – July), to the “birth year” calendar, (January – December).
In addition, as part of the new player development initiatives, there are now guidelines on the number of players who can play in an older age group ‘between formats’. The rationale for this guideline is to ensure the majority of players are involved in age appropriate, small sided games for a longer period of their early soccer years. For several seasons, CDO Soccer Club has been taking a proactive-progressive approach in adopting initiatives like small sided formats to further the development of the players in the club and therefore welcomes this initiative by US Soccer.
More information on the new playing formats, game durations, and basic rules, can be seen by clicking on the following link "2020-2021 Playing Formats"
What began in the 2016-2017 season and will continue in 2020-21, our teams will continue to limit play “out of age/format”. That means that an entire team of younger age should not "play up" if it means they have to change game format (e.g. a U10 7v7 team attempting to play at U11 9v9).
