Arden Park Soccer Club offers recreational soccer teams for children of varying abilities beginning at age 4, all players must by 4 on or before December 31, 2023.
Our team age groups are from Under 6 through Under 19. Please see our Age Matrix to the left for all eligible birth years and team age groups.
**Please while all of our age groups are even numbered, the U05 and U07 distinction is made when registering to ensure the younger teams are as age pure as possible.**
The club may allow at its discretion, a qualified younger player to play on a team no more than one year older, when the parent has checked the box on the registration application requesting a Play-Up Special Request, verifying that they accept the policy, accept all terms, and requested by checking the request box during the online registration process.
Please note: Agreement of the Play Up Request during online registration does not guarantee placement in an older age group. While the club will make every effort to accommodate play-up requests, balancing of teams and ensuring all players who register are assigned to a team roster for the season are the first priorities of the club.
By checking the play-up request box during registration you agree to the following:
- I am formally requesting my child/player to “Play up” to an older age group, then the default age group based on my child/player’s birth year.
- I understand that if my request is approved, my child will be competing against older, more mature, and possibly larger players.
- I recognize that, if my request is approved, my child may have reduced playing time because of developmental differences.
- I accept any risks in this situation and give my child/player permission to play with older players if my request is approved.
- I understand that this request will be considered based on team space availability, age group of the team, team player’s age, needs of the Club and justification of the request.
- I understand that this request must be coordinated and approved by all required persons, and that I will be notified of the outcome of this request either approved or denied. If denied, a reason shall be provided.
- I understand that, if approved, this request shall remain in effect for the remainder of the current season only. It will not be carried to the next season.
- I understand that this request is not revocable by me after my child/player is place on a team.
The Club will consider the request if one or more of the following conditions exist: The club believes the younger player is qualified in (a) skills and (b) physical/emotional development to safely play with and against older players of a particular age group. One or more of the following conditions exist: An older team is in need of players and does not have enough players in the correct age group; The club, coach, and parents believe the younger child will not be harmed; The child’s age-appropriate team will have sufficient players to field a viable team without the player; The player is the child of the team’s head coach.
