Official Site of the Michigan Burn Soccer Club, Chesterfield, Michigan

Calendar Birth Year Registration Effective August 1st, 2016

Players will be encouraged to play their own age group, or birth year, however, exceptions will be made based on player development, difficulties in an age group or birth year, and overall team make up. As always, decisions will be made with the best interest of the players and teams in mind.

The Charts below show the new age group breakdown in addition to the small sided game mandates. We thank you for your support to The Michigan Burn and we look forward to a great tryout in June and great soccer for the 2018/2019 season.
