Select soccer registration is now CLOSED.

Registration Instructions for Nelson Elite teams for Fall 2017

Please read the instructions before registering your player.

As many of you know, we are an affiliate of US Soccer, through our state association, Kentucky Youth Soccer. Earlier this year, US Soccer mandated changes for the age grouping and certain rules of the game. Our board met this week to finalize plans for when and how to implement these changes. These changes will apply to both recreational and select soccer teams.

The changes will go into effect this Fall, 2016. The age grouping will be dictated by the child’s birth year, rather than Aug 1 – Aug 1.
It will work like this:
•if your child’s birth year was 2011-2012, they will play U6 for the upcoming fall/spring season
•if birth year was 2009-2010, they will play U8 for the upcoming fall/spring season
•if birth year was 2007-2008, they will play U10 for the upcoming fall/spring season
•if birth year was 2005-2006, they will play U12 for the upcoming fall/spring season


Remember that Select soccer is a 1 YEAR commitment, that begins in the Fall. Teams normally do not have openings for the Spring season. So if your player is interested in playing Select, they need to be registered and attend tryouts.
