DIVISION AGES & DESCRIPTIONS

As a guide, we have added the divisions that LWAA offers based on the US Soccer Birth Year and Season Matrix for the season of 2021- 2022 to help everyone understand the age groups. LWAA does not have age groups for every division. We use even year number divisions (except for First Touch Academy) to align with our partner organizations.
