Should my child play competitive soccer?

All parents need to ask whether their child (and their family) should play soccer at a higher level. Click here to see a description of the commitment required to enjoy high level soccer.
 

I want my child to "play up" at a higher age group. Is this allowed? What do I need to know?

Players wishing to 'play up' must be invited to a trial for their desired team and be assessed by both the team coach(es) and Club Head Coach(es) and accepted to the team before they are permitted to register in a division.  Players wishing to play up an age group are only permitted to play up one year (YOB) above their own.  Ex. U12 (2008) -> U13 (2007) or a U14 (2006) -> U15 (2005).
