Should your child "Play Up?"  Please read below for considerations.

All Players are expected to tryout for their birth year age group.

In cases of exceptional talent, the Competitive Committee will consider evaluating players who are among the TOP FIVE (5) players OF THE AGE GROUP they wish to tryout for. An e-mail must be sent to Alexis Maurtua, the Competitive Coaching Director, requesting an opportunity to tryout in an upper age group. Upon consultation with the player's previous coaches, if the player is granted the ability to tryout for an older age group, a petition must be completed (see button below). This process must take place PRIOR TO THE TRYOUT. Coaches, Trainers, and Competitive Coaching Steering Committee members will evaluate the player and determine whether he/she is eligible to remain with that older age group for the duration of tryouts or if he/she will be sent back to tryout for their age pure / birth year team.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as Granite Bay FC seeks to comply with USSF's age group mandate.
