Valpo Soccer Club

Rules and Policies

As with most every Indiana youth soccer club, the Valpo Soccer Club is bound by a set of rules, policies, requirements, and bylaws. As agreed upon by our governing board of directors, our Northwest Indiana soccer club adheres to a foundation established by our Indiana soccer league rules and policies.

From youth soccer eligibility requirements to the operating bylaws and constitution, the Valpo Soccer Club operates under and upholds the standards defined in our organizational bylaws.

The foundational rules and policies that support our Indiana soccer club adhere to standards set by the Soccer Association for Youth (SAY), as well as the Northwest Indiana Soccer League (NWISL). Other youth soccer teams that the Valpo Soccer Club plays in regular competition within the NWISL have similar rules, policies and bylaws and operate under similar requirements and restrictions as our Indiana youth soccer club does.

Of particular interest to player's families in our soccer club is player age eligibility requirements.

Depending upon a player’s age at of the cutoff date of the seasonal year, players will be eligible for specific teams in age appropriate groups.

Player Eligibility

Eligibility for age groups shall be determined by a player’s age on August 1 of the seasonal year.  (The 'U' is for 'under'. meaning on August 1, 2018 the player is under that particular age)
