Age Group Assignments

 

Starting in the 2016-2017 season, Albany Soccer Club will switch to calendar year based age grouping as mandated by the US Soccer federation and all youth soccer organizations.  Please refer to the Age Matrix file below for assistance in determining your child's age group classification. 

Practices / Indoor Soccer Play

During the indoor season (Nov. – Apr.), the team practices during week at one of the City School District of Albany schools. The team also participates in Afrim’s Indoor Session II (Jan-Feb) or Indoor Session III (Mar-Apr) or both.  One of the sessions is included in the fee structure. If the team plays two sessions or doubles in one session, there will be additional costs. Other opportunities for play will be on an individual coach preference.

During the outdoor season (Apr. – Jun.), coaches will practice outdoor at our home fields, Hoffman Park, while following the CDYSL schedule.  

Volunteers Always Needed!

The success of any organization is as good as the people who are able to put their time and effort into it.  We're hoping you can take sometime to help out. Just ask a coach or a board member what you can do.  If you would like to join the board, email Jeff Dollar at jdollar5@nycap.rr.com.
