- The age divisions will change from U16/19 to U17/20. Participants may not turn 17 or 20 in the year of YCC participation.
- No college players will be allowed to compete at YCC.
- All participants wishing to compete in YCC must have also competed in a USAU sanctioned HS Championship (the AFDC Spring HS State Championship is a qualifying event).
We at the AFDC are not particularly thrilled about these changes and are exploring all our options in terms of our continued partnership with USAU. For now, we will continue to compete at YCC and will abide by USAU guidelines. The YCC program will continue very similarly to previous years: there will be an open tryout process followed by team selection from our YCC Committee.
YCC is a national youth club tournament held in Blaine, MN in early August. Top youth players who excel in both skill and spirit have an opportunity to represent Atlanta and compete with other top youth teams around the country. AFDC has four YCC teams:
U-19 Open (must be under 19 years old on 5/31/16)
U-19 Girls (must be under 19 years old on 5/31/16, girls only)
U-19 Mixed (must be under 19 years old on 5/31/16, boys and girls)
U-16 Open (must be under 16 years old on 5/31/16)
If you have any questions regarding YCC, please contact Courtney Farrell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Congratulations to all of the above players!
