As many of you have heard there will be a transformation of team formation beginning at the June tryouts for the 2016/2017 season. The transition will be from a school year August 1st-July 31st placement to a birth year (January 1st – December 31st) team placement. This transition is being mandated by the Michigan State Youth Soccer Association (MSYSA) for all affiliated leagues (i.e. WMYSA, MYSL) in accordance with U.S. Soccer age groups. All affiliated clubs in Michigan and divisions (Select, Elite, Premier, etc.) will be governed by the same rule of team formation. Kalamazoo Soccer Club will implement this rule at the June 18th 2016 tryouts.
