Super Y League unveils Standards Chart for 2019 season
TAMPA, Fla (Via Super Y League) – In the lead up to the 2019 Super Y League season, the league has released the 2019 Standards Chart for all competing age groups.
Several changes for the 2018 season come in the form of alignment with current United States Soccer Federation policies. Previously, several standards were used in the SYL season that correlated to the previous year’s USSF standards, causing various age groups to shift the number of players on the field, field size, and other requirements from the spring season to the fall season.
The graphic below details each of the seven age groups set to compete in Super Y League for the 2019 campaign.
Players compete in 9 v 9 matches through the U12 age bracket, while ball and goal size, as well as half length, increase once players progress to older age groups.
These age groups are determined based on birth year format, e.g. 2009 for U11 and 2005 for U15, with an additional caveat being that the U18/19 age group — which will normally feature players born in 2001/2002 — can also allocate six roster spots to players born in 2000.
A part of United Soccer Leagues, LLC, which also operates the Division II USL, USL League One and Premier Development League, the Super Y League features a summer platform with an annual North American Championship in December.
