FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS / GENERAL INFORMATION

When does the 2017 Fall season begin?
The Fall season games begin on Saturday, September 9, 2017

How long is the season?
The regular fall season ends on November 18, 2017. Play-offs and finals will be scheduled after Thanksgiving.

Is Registration (sign up) for the current season still open?
Yes. Please see our Registration Page for more details.

When and where will practices be held?
The practice schedule is set by the team coach. Once your child is registered and assigned to a team, you will be contacted by the coach who will inform you of the practice schedule and practice location. 

When will I hear from my child's coach?
You should hear from your child's coach by the end of August. We are always looking for coaches. If you have not yet heard from your child's coach please consider volunteering as a coach.

How often are practices held?
Practices are twice a week (field and times to be determined by your child’s coach). 

When and where are the games played?
All games are played on Saturdays and/or Sundays. Each division (age group, gender) plays on different fields. The schedule and field locations can be found here. Game duration info can be found here.

I have children of different ages and / or  genders. Will they be able to practice at the same time and at the same location?

The practice schedule is set by the team coach. The coach will let you know the location and time that your team will be practicing. Since the children will have different coaches, they could easily have different practice schedules.

I have registered my child but not yet made the payment. Can my child still be assigned to a team?
Only once your child is registered and payment is received, will they be assigned to a team.

Can I request to put my child with another player or coach?

No. Due to AYSO's balanced team philosophy, we cannot guarantee any requests. 

Can I coach with my friend or neighbor?
AYSO policy specifies that the only team member(s) that a head coach may specify be on his or her team is his or her own child or children.  You are welcome to make requests and let us know your preferences, however, our team formation policy helps to ensure we have balanced and impartial teams for a fun and fair soccer environment.  You might also meet new friends for life!

Who needs to register as a Volunteer? do I need to register as a Volunteer?

Coaches, Assistant Coaches, Referees and Team Parents need to register / re-register each year. To ensure the safety of both children and volunteers, each volunteer is required to take a short online training session called Safe Haven™.  The Safe Haven course focuses on safety and appropriate behavior with children as well as first aid and other on-field issues. It only needs to be taken once.  AYSO volunteers agree to an annual background check.
Coaches, Assistant Coaches & Referees will also have additional coach or referee training clinics offered by our region. Those clinics are designed to be quick, easy, and fun to take - even for those with no prior soccer experience at all. Everyone is welcome to attend those clinics, even if you don’t intend to coach or referee this season.  See the Coach  and Referee  pages for more information.
