Welcome to FPYC Soccer
US Soccer Date of Birth Change – Please Read
As we communicated through various means last season (Spring 2016) US Soccer has changed the date of birth cut off from 8/1 to 1/1 for all age groups (U4 through U19) starting with the Fall 2016 season. In preparation for this change various FPYC Soccer Advisory Board Members have been communicating with both internal as well as external stake holders within the local youth soccer community. We understand that there is a fair amount of distress with respect to concrete direction within certain age groups but, please note that various FPYC Soccer Advisory Board members have been working throughout the summer to manage the date change in the fair and equitable way for all FPYC soccer players throughout the age groups we serve. Please note that our main concern is to create teams within age groups that are strong enough to be competitive in all of our age groups and as such we are weighing every option as it relates to those teams.
We appreciate the concern that has been communicated by many parents with respect to the prospects of their players having to play-up in some cases two age groups. We appreciate that many parents have requested that their players be placed on specific teams for the fall 2016 season. Please keep in mind that every single youth soccer program in Northern Virginia is currently facing the same challenges and collectively we are doing out outmost to ensure every player is placed on a team where he/she can enjoy playing soccer.
As we continue to work through various issues through various age groups we will proactively reach out to parents to ensure we keep everyone abreast of decisions specific to team make-up.
We sincerely appreciate your patience as we migrate through this new change and hope you understand that we are truly trying to do the best for each and every FPYC Soccer player.
