AYSO All-Stars is a continuation of play for players who played in the recreational division of AYSO in the Fall (Extra players are not eligible). All-Star play starts at the U10 level and continues through U14. The All-Star season follows the intra-region Fall recreational season, with play taking place in the following January and February. All-Star play is highly competitive, and is often a stepping stone for those who wish to take part in the Extra program. A full commitment to all All-Star games, tournaments, and practices is required to be considered for selection to the All-Star team.
Players for the All-Star teams are chosen by a committee based upon their performance in games during the recreational season and an All-Star tryout process. The All-Star Committee shall be comprised of unbiased coaches who will evaluate and rate all players that attend the tryout. Coaches with their own child participating in the tryout may sit on the committee, however, they will not evaluate their own child. Players will wear numbered pinnies at the tryouts to further help make the process unbiased. At the end of the tryout all player ratings will be compiled and reviewed. The Coach Administrator will make the final decision on the roster with approval by the Commissioner.
If you would like to be considered for one of the All-Star coaching positions please contact Jason Kakimoto (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Paul Kirby (email@example.com) expressing your interest. All-Star coaches are expected to represent Region 55 in a positive manner at all times. Coaches will be selected based on a number of criteria including, but not limited to: certification level, sideline behavior, coaching experience, adherence to the AYSO Philosophies, support of the Region’s activities, etc.
