    Any word on who the additions/subtractions will be for the different age groups? I would imagine the announcements will come out soon..

    For the Bay Area? SJEQ, De Anza, Ballistic and Silicon Valley have been there for some time. I cant imagine any of these being subtracted.

    They added San Jose Surf Soccer Club to U12.

    Mustang SC (valley)
    San Francisco Elite Academy (bay area)
    San Francisco Glens Evolution (bay area)
    Star Academy FC (bay area)

    were given U13. It's a big expansion in bay area side.
    Since U13 plays 11v11, all 10 clubs will have to find enough talent to fill 16 (min) to 20 (min) roster.

    Most of U12 teams had an equal number of 06 and 07 players. 3-7 additional players will be needed for all 10 clubs in the Bay Area side further diluting Norcal.

    And then they will change back to the old birth years. It's coming back!

    Not sure about the old birth years coming back (that would be pretty wild), but I'm surprised that norcalpremier is keeping the tryout window for the youngers in May. I believe it hurt the spring/summer tournament circuit.
