Please read the important information below before registering!

Fees
The standard registration fee is $250.  Please use the esignature option. Your registration is not complete until we have received your fee.  Although a division may be listed as open, registrations are being processed as they are received and divisions may close before this site is updated.

Your fee covers player uniform, practice ball, registration with national AYSO, use of fields, team supplies, subscription to Soccer Now magazine and administrative expenses. You are registering for both the Fall and Spring portion of the season. There is no need to re-register in the Spring if you had registered and are placed on a team in the Fall.

Please Volunteer!!!
The AYSO program depends entirely on volunteers and there are never enough. Please make our job easier, and more importantly, your child's experience richer, by volunteering to coach, referee, serve as a committee member, contribute as a board member or help on an as-needed basis. Simply click the appropriate space on the registration form!

Age Brackets/Divisions
Your child will be assigned a team based on age, not grade in school. Age brackets for this season are:

Division Ages Born In the Year  
U-5 4 2013  
U-6 5 2012  
U-8 6-7 2010 / 2011  
U-10 8-9 2008 / 2009  
U-12 10-11 2006 / 2007  
U-14 12-13 2004 / 2005  
U-16 14-15 2002 / 2003  
       

Upon request, players may "play up" into an older division. Please note this in the Play Up section of the registration form. Under no circumstances will a player be allowed to "play down" into a younger division. Any questions about this policy should be directed to the Regional Registrar.

Each division, from U6 up including U-14 will be divided in Boys and Girls divisions. We are hoping to register enough players to field at least 4 teams in each gender. Teams in the U12 and U14 divisions will play some inter-region games with other AYSO regions in the area.

U5 players will participate in the Jamboree Program.  Jamboree One with One is the combination of two different formats that, put together, provides the best possible introduction to soccer for our youngest players. In AYSO soccer, a jamboree means that groups are formed on a weekly basis depending on how many players attend a given session. One with One refers to the concept that each player will have a parent (or other adult) working with them on the field.  Jamboree is co-ed.

Team Formation
Teams are formed based on three factors: Skill (from coach evaluation and experience), age and geographic location. Our divisional managers / team formers make every attempt to insure balanced teams while at the same time considering special requests in the U-6 and U-8 divisions (depending on the date of registration). Special requests will not be accepted in the U-10, U-12 and U-14 divisions. Once teams are formed, changes will be made only with the approval of the Regional Registrar and Divisional Managers.
