What does U4, U5, etc mean?

The U is short for “under”. Age groups for teams are determined by the year of birth of the child. Players must be “under” the age level as of December 31st in order to play for that age level.  For example, for a player to participate in the U4 level, he or she must be 3 years old and not have attained the age of 4 years prior to December 31st of the year that you are registering in.  U5 would be 4 years old, etc.
