AGE GROUPINGS

This fall, AYSO is changing their age groups.  Attached is the age group guide that will apply for Fall 2017.  

Region 92 has programs for the following age groups in our fall program:

5U Jamboree
6U
7U
8U
10U
12U
14U
16U
19U

*THERE WILL BE ABSOLUTELY NO PLAYERS ALLOWED TO MOVE DOWN AN AGE GROUP DUE TO INSURANCE REASONS AND REGULATIONS, REGARDLESS OF CIRCUMSTANCE.  MOVE UP REQUESTS WILL BE CONSIDERED ON A CASE BY CASE BASIS BUT WILL BE EXTREMELY RARE.

TEAM FORMATION

Once registration has closed, the team formation process will begin.

Following completion of registration and on the date designated by the Regional Commissioner, the Regional Registrar will provide the Coach Administrator and the respective Program Commissioner with a list of players that meet the eligibility requirements for each division. The list shall include: the player’s name, prior year’s rating, birth date, division, and registration date.  If the player has previously been assigned a player rating, that information will be provided as well.

Players entering the program without a prior year rating will require an assessment before team formation to determine his or her skill level for balanced team formation. The Coach Administrator or Program Commissioner will schedule a mandatory evaluation session and arrange for assessors to evaluate and rate players using the same rating scale as other players in the division. The new ratings will be entered into eAYSO and applied for team formation as described below. If the Region is unable to determine a player’s rating, those unrated players may be added to the player pool and sorted by birth date for rating purposes during the team formation process. The addition of unrated players to the player pool will be subject to approval of the Regional Commissioner.

The Division Commissioner will review the player pool and identify siblings. If the parents or guardians of siblings within the same division have not requested same team placement, the parents or guardians should be contacted to confirm this intent BEFORE proceeding with team formation.  Previous participating on an all-star team, a club team, or other factors may also be considered.

Once all considerations are identified, teams are formed using a serpentine system.  Further details about how this system works can be found in the team formation policy document.

Teams will be announced in late August and players will be contacted by their coach at the email address provided during registration.

UNIFORMS AND EQUIPMENT

To participate in AYSO soccer, all players must wear shin guards at all times.  Soccer cleats are optional but recommended.  

Uniforms consisting of a pair of black shorts, colored shirts and matching socks will be provided to each player.  Players must wear their uniforms to all games can can lose sportsmanship points for failure to comply.  Balls, cones, and first aid kits will be provided to all volunteer coaches and referee uniforms will be provided to all volunteer referees.  Uniforms will be distributed to each team prior to the first game.
