Play Up Policy

The Gold Country Youth Soccer Board (Board) requires all players to participate at their age-appropriate, youngest team for which they qualify by birth. The purpose of this policy is to promote age-appropriate development (physical, mental and social) of all league players and to maximize each teams competitive advantages. The Board believes that players will develop better at their age appropriate level than at an age level above. It is rare that a player’s development would be hindered by playing at the appropriate age level or significantly advanced by playing up. Conversely, allowing players to play up dilutes the talent and player pool at each age group. While it may help a given team to bolster its roster with an under-age player, this is often at a cost to the younger teams. It also can be detrimental to the overall morale of participants at all levels within the league.

Gold Country Youth Soccer-Recreational League Playing up Policy: It is Board policy that no individuals or teams within the Gold Country Youth Soccer-Recreational League will be allowed to play up. Players or teams within the recreational league interested in competitive soccer are encourage to tryout for the Gold County United competitive soccer league. The Board may appoint teams or player to any appropriate age group based on Board discretion.
