U13 - U19 Boys and Girls


In Georgia their are two (2) levels of play offered by Georgia Soccer’s member affiliates: Competitive and Recreational Soccer.

Competitive (Select) Soccer is offered in three different programs:

  • Academy- Boys and Girls ages 8 to 11. No divisions, no standings, no promotion/relegation
  • Athena- Girls ages 12 to 18. Divisions aer labeled Athena A (highest) to Athena E (lowest)
  • Classic- Boys ages 12 to 18. Divisions are labeled Classic I (highest) to Classic V (lowest)

Division’s are defined and managed by Age Group Coordinators and the Chairperson of the Georgia Soccer - Youth Select Committee. Typically, Divisions will range from I - V; level I being the highest and level V being the lowest. Each youth member affiliate (Club) is responsible for the organization of teams and rosters, the assignement of coaches, and submission of those teams to Georigia Soccer for season scheduling. Teams are relegated and promoted through the division’s depending on their prior season’s standings. The Select Committee decides the number of teams in each division.

Tryouts are held during May (U13 Teams) and June (U14-U19 Teams) to form the teams that will begin play in the Fall season of each year.
