The Fall Play program is the main focus of AYSO Soccer, and the fall season runs from September – November. The Fall Play program is competitive; however, it doesn’t lose track of the fact that it’s all about having fun. Each team has a registered volunteer coach who is age appropriately train and certified. This certification is provided to the coach at no cost. Each of these teams participate in a twelve or thirteen game regular season. This requires a lot of certified Referee volunteers. In addition this program is completely organized by a volunteer board. As you can imagine, running the program smoothly requires a lot of team work.

Registration for the fall season takes place in the spring with the first registration date being referred to as the Early Bird registration. All players registering at the Early Bird registration receive a discount with a family maximum. To receive the discount, you must register by the Early Bird deadline.

The intent of the Spring Select program is to provide an ongoing soccer experience for those players with average to above-average soccer skills. Not all players desiring to play will be chosen. This is a select program and the number of players chosen in each division will depend on the amount of qualified coaches willing to coach in the spring, as well as field availability. The program is available for players from the U8 through U19 divisions. The U8 program is a regional program, and the U10 – U19 programs are run by the area. The Spring Select program does not use funds from the fall program; therefore, there is a charge to participating players.

All players who participated in the Fall Season program playing in at least 50% of the games and exhibiting a positive AYSO attitude are eligible to submit an application for the Spring Select program. For a player to be a mandatory pick the parent must have been a registered volunteer during the Fall Season as a Coach, Referee or Board Member. A Referee’s child will only be a mandatory pick if he or she refereed a minimum number of 5 games. In addition the referee must be willing to referee during the Spring Select season. All prospective coaches must have age appropriate certification.

The spring season season runs from February through May with some tournaments running into June.


 Just for 4 Year Old Boys and Girls! 

Soccer is for people of all ages – even the little ones! Several years ago, we created Jamboree, or the U5 program, for four-year-olds. In Jamboree, children get to play soccer in an age-specific program, and you, the parents, get to participate with them.

In Jamboree, each team is made up of three to four players and each player will have a parent (or other adult) with them on the field. The children learn soccer skills like kicking, dribbling, and throwing in the ball, but in a low-pressure setting. Jamboree is about exposing children to soccer, not grooming them for college scholarships.

Parents help take turns organizing the teams, setting up fields and supervising the program. While their children are playing, parent volunteers keep time, but interfere with play as little as possible. There are only a few reasons to stop play in Jamboree games. If a child is not playing well with others, or if play must pause for injury, substitution, confusion, or to watch a flock or birds fly by, parents can quickly direct attention back to the game.

In Jamboree, goals are not counted to determine who wins - every player is a winner. Young players need to get a feel for the ball and the field, so even though there are adults all around and many opportunities to offer instruction, the emphasis is on fun and play. It’s a different kind of game in U-5, but the children still wear jerseys or pinnies, cleats and shin guards. Best of all, they find out that soccer is something they can do.

Jamboree Fee includes: 

  • Uniform
  • End of Year Soccer Jamboree Celebration
  • Pictures (basic package) 
  • Trophy 
  • Excess Insurance 
Each week will include: 
  • 4-6 fun drills designed around familiar cartoon characters (i.e. Sponge Bob) and run for 5-10 minutes each. Each drill will focus on a specific skill for the kids to learn while playing. 


Saturdays Only: September – November
