Youth soccer leagues no longer use the U8 through U17 league names. The players' birth year (2010, 2009, 2008, etc) is used to name the team/league. I'd like to add birth years to the permanent "Age" settings. Currently, we have U8 through U17 which works well for classes. I propose we keep the U8 through U17 setting and add each birth year so youth league programs can make the choice to use the the birth year (choose 2010 over U8).
Naming the leagues/teams on the league/team title is not sufficient. Having the choice to choose the birth year over the U8-U17 option will prevent confusion when the U8 through U17 are misaligned with the birth year of certain players certain times of the year. It's clearer to commit to only using the birth year.
