When does the 2024 Fall season begin?

We are confirmed to start Saturday September 7th, 2024.

How can I find out what team my child is on?
Teams are usually formed mid-August/September.  You can sign back onto your account and once your child is placed on a team, it will give you the team information.  Or you can email below: PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR CHILD'S FIRST & LAST NAME and AGE
For boys, email: [email protected]
For girls, email: [email protected]

How long is the season?
The regular fall season usually ends before the Thanksgiving weekend. Play-offs and finals are usually scheduled after Thanksgiving.

Is Registration (sign up) for the current season still open?
Yes. Please see our Registration Page for more details.

When and where will practices be held?
The practice schedule is set by the team coach. Once your child is registered and assigned to a team, you will be contacted by the coach who will inform you of the practice schedule and practice location. 

When will I hear from my child's coach?
You should hear from your child's coach by the end of August. We are always looking for coaches. If you have not yet heard from your child's coach please consider volunteering as a coach.

How often are practices held?
Practices are held once or twice a week (field and times to be determined by your child’s coach). 

When and where are the games played?
All games are played on Saturdays. Each division (age group, gender) plays on different fields. The schedule and field locations can be found here. Game duration info can be found here.

I have children of different ages and / or  genders. Will they be able to practice at the same time and at the same location?

The practice schedule is set by the team coach. The coach will let you know the location and time that your team will be practicing. Since the children will have different coaches, they could easily have different practice schedules.

I have registered my child but not yet mailed the payment. Can my child still be assigned to a team?
Only once your child is registered and payment is received, will they be assigned to a team.

Can I request to put my child with another player or coach?
No. Due to AYSO's balanced team philosophy, we cannot guarantee any requests

Can I coach with my friend or neighbor?
AYSO policy specifies that the only team member(s) that a head coach may specify be on his or her team is his or her own child or children.  You are welcome to make requests and let us know your preferences, however, our team formation policy helps to ensure we have balanced and impartial teams for a fun and fair soccer environment.  You might also meet new friends for life!

What equipment will my child need?
- Soccer Cleats (cleats without the toe cleat)
- Shin guards

How do I register my child?
Registration is done through our web site, www.  click on "Register Now" at the top right hand corner of the site.

Who needs to register as a Volunteer? do I need to register as a Volunteer?
Coaches, Assistant Coaches, Referees and Team Parents need to register / re-register each year. To ensure the safety of both children and volunteers, each volunteer is required to take a short online training session called Safe Haven™.  The Safe Haven course focuses on safety and appropriate behavior with children as well as first aid and other on-field issues. It only needs to be taken once.  AYSO volunteers must agree to an annual background check.
Coaches, Assistant Coaches & Referees will also have additional coach or referee training clinics offered by our region. Those clinics are designed to be quick, easy, and fun to take - even for those with no prior soccer experience at all. Everyone is welcome to attend those clinics, even if you don’t intend to coach or referee this season.  See the Coach  and Referee  pages for more information.

AYSO Policy – Pets On The Field

Dogs and other pets are not allowed at the fields anytime during soccer practices or games. Most of the sites where soccer practices and games are scheduled and conducted (e.g. schools) prohibit pets from being brought onto their grounds even when soccer activities are not being conducted.

Exceptions to this rule are for service animals only. AYSO is obligated to observe and respect existing regulations and laws regarding the presence of service animals at our fields. Service animals are defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) as only dogs or miniature horses that have been trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability. Other animals, whether wild or domestic, do not qualify as service animals.

If a dog or other pet is brought to a practice or game, you will be asked to remove it from the field immediately. Please note that this policy is in place to ensure a safe environment for players, coaches, referees, and spectators. Your understanding and cooperation in keeping pets away from the soccer fields is greatly appreciated. Link to AYSO Policy
