Beginning this season, all Best Southwest teams are making the transition from age groupings based on school year to age groupings based on calendar year. Previously, age groups were determined based on players born between Aug. 1 and July 31. The change to calendar year age groups will reflect the calendar year, or Jan. 1 to Dec. 31.
This is a change initiated by US Youth Soccer for all leagues. Players are still allowed to “play up” or play in an older age group as parents, coaches, and the board determine it is in the best interest of the individual child.
This age chart may help you answer questions as you are registering and notice that your child is not in the age bracket you originally expected.
We will not be implementing the pending change to small-sided games at this time.
Tuesday 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Safety of all of our players, parents and volunteers is always a concern. In the event of lightning, MSA recommends adherence to the "30/30 Rule"; specifically, if the Thor Guard warning system is triggered or if thunder is heard within 30 seconds of seeing lightning, everyone should leave the fields and go to a safe location, preferably the car, for at least 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, the Thor Guard will sound an all clear or indicate if lightening is still in the area. MSA will determine if games are cancelled or if the fields are closed due to lightening.
