Fall Season Key Info

Q) When does the 2022 regular season start?  (Note the EOS tournament dates may be adjusted based on the number of teams)
A) The first weekend of games for the Schoolyard (5U), 6U, 8U, 10U, 12U, and 14U divisions is September 17th.
16U will tentatively start play on Wednesday, September 14th.  For Schoolyard, 6U and 8U, the regular season runs 9 straight weeks with the final regular season games ending on November 12th. For 10U - 14U, the regular season runs 8 straight weeks with the final regular season games ending on November 5th; the End of Season (EOS) Tournament (10U, 12U, 14U) is November 12, 16, 18, 19 & 20.  Rain make-up dates for the EOS Tournament are November 25, 26, & 27  (yes, Thanksgiving week, so do your sun dance!).

Q)  I would like my child to "play-up" an age group, what is the process?
A)  Play-up requests must have a reason and must be approved by our AYSO Regional Commissioner.  Please contact our Regional Commissioner, Todd Cooper ([email protected]by August 1, 2022 with your request and you will be notified if it is approved or not.  

Q) When will I hear from my coach? 
A) We will select our coaches and form our teams over the summer. The Regular Season Coaches Meeting will be held: (TBD) at the Elks Club, 6U-8U time 6:30pm-7:30pm and 10U, 12U and 14U time7:45pm - 8:45pm.  The coaches will receive their equipment, uniforms, roster and player medical waiver forms at that meeting, and then will start contacting their players. You can access your coaches contact information in Blue Sombrero after September 1st.  Please do NOT email us because you have not heard from the coach until after the end of the day on September 1st.

Q) My child(ren)’s practice days and/or times are inconvenient.  Can I switch teams? 
A) No. We do not make any player changes unless you were inadvertently placed in the wrong division. Examples of incorrect division placement would include if you are a boy placed on a girls team (or vice-versa) or if we accidentally did not place your child with their sibling. No refunds will be made for drops because of inconvenient practices.  Your child’s playing time in games will not be affected by their ability to attend practices.

Q) What can I do to have more control over when and where my child practices? 
A) Coach your child’s team.  Because coaches are volunteering their time and energy to our program and our kids, they have sole discretion as to what days, what times and what locations they hold practice. As a coach, you will have the flexibility to arrange your practices around your schedule and we will provide you the support and training you need to make it a successful experience for everyone.  After the teams are formed, we would still love your help as an assistant coach but the time to sign up as a coach to be able to determine practice time and location was in the summer.

Q) Who is responsible for setting up or taking down the goals and corner flags? 
A) It is the responsibility of parents of the participating teams to set up and take down the goals each week if those teams have the first or last games of the day on their assigned field. Please plan on arriving a little earlier than normal if your team has the responsibility of setting up your field. Team responsibility will be listed under the Coaches Tab after schedules are issued in late August.  


Q) My child just had their ears pierced, can they wear earrings/ jewelry 
For safety reasons, please refrain from obtaining any piercings just prior to and during the season. Earrings or any other form of jewelry are not permitted during practice and games. Taping of earrings is not permitted. A player will be asked to remove jewelry at game time.

Q) My child is suddenly unable  to play this fall,  what is your Refund Policy?
Please see our Refund Policy, which is part of our Region 599 Policies updated, voted, and adopted by the 599 voting Board members periodically and located here:  599 Policies
