Great Soccer is Played Here!

F.A.Q.

How does AYSO work? How may I help?

The AYSO organization is run entirely by volunteers who give of their own time. You may help as a coach, referee, team parent, Board Member or in other areas. AYSO will provide complete training for ALL volunteer positions!!!

How long is the fall soccer season and when are the games?

Games start the first Saturday after Labor Day and continue through mid November. The schedule will vary by all division, with 10U thru 19U players participating in post season playoffs that may run into December. Games may be scheduled as early as 8:00 AM on Saturdays and will run all day until dark. If your child is on an older team (10U and above) they will have some Sunday games.

What if my child no longer decides to play?

Region 41 has a refund policy. We will refund your registration fee less $20 if you request a refund by 7/01. After that we will NOT honor any refund requests. Please see the website for more details.

How are teams formed?

Teams in divisions 10U through 14U are balanced based upon each player's skill level, age and experience. Due to the need to create balanced teams, requests to be placed with friends or neighbors or for carpool purposes cannot be accommodated. Requests to move from one team to another due to practice conflicts will not be accommodated. Teams in 6U and 8U divisions will be placed by the program directors according to neighborhoods, schools and requests. Our volunteers do the best they can, however, we are not able to place according to every request. Please understand that we do try.

I have neighbors who would still like to sign up. Can they?

Yes, registration is OPEN online through 7/1. After 7/1, we will place players on teams as room permits on the rosters. Please tell your neighbors and friends to visit the website for more details.
Why do other cities seem to begin practicing before Region 41?
The City of Laguna Niguel has some of the most well maintained fields in Orange County. To keep them in great condition, they close them for the summer to give them a chance to “rest.” We are allowed to use fields starting in early September. Since our first 3-4 games are all practice games, this works fine for us.

When will the practice and game schedules be released?

The City of Laguna Niguel usually gives us our field permits in mid-August. We assign age groups to fields based upon the size of the division and league, and then the fields and teams are sent to the scheduler to create the game schedules. The last couple of years they have been delayed due to late player drops and team shuffling. We strive to have schedules released 10 days prior to opening day but sometimes unforeseen circumstances delay this.

Where and when will my child practice?

Practices are held at numerous fields in Laguna Niguel. The decision of place, day, and time is determined by division and league size, taking into consideration the coach’s request. Practices are generally conducted two times per week, except 6U, which are once per week. 5U only plays and practices on Saturdays.
