About DeKalb AYSO

DeKalb AYSO was founded over 35 years ago to bring soccer to any child who wanted to play soccer.  It incorporates players from the Illinois areas of DeKalb, Malta, Cortland, Waterman, Shabbona and occasionally Sycamore.  Upper Division teams (which start at age 12) travel to and host teams from surrounding communities including Amboy, Genoa, Rochelle, Rockford and Sycamore.  

DeKalb AYSO is run and operated exclusively by volunteers, including board members, referees, coaches, team parents, field set-up, etc.  Some of these positions require very little time, some are quite involved.  Board members, coaches and referees involve the most time and do receive a gift of appreciation for their dedication.  Please consider volunteering your time.

All U12 and under games are played at Kiwanis Park, located at 391 Fairview Avenue in DeKalb, IL.  Games are all played on Saturday mornings, with a game schedule distributed before the season begins. Weekly practices are scheduled at the discretion of the coach.  The spring season is eight weeks long, running from mid-April through early June. There are no games Memorial Day weekend. The fall season is ten weeks long, with practices starting in early August and games beginning in mid-August, running through the last weekend in October.  There are no games on Labor Day weekend.  

Upper Division games (U14 and above) are inter-region games, with most games played at Kiwanis Park and a few games played in surrounding communities such as Amboy, Genoa, Rochelle and Sycamore.  These games generally start and end a week or two earlier than the regular season and are also played on Saturday mornings, with a schedule distributed before the start of the season.  There are no games on Memorial or Labor Day weekends.

In 2013, DeKalb AYSO held its first spring season.  Early bird registration for the spring season takes place in January and February and for the fall season takes place in April and May to allow enough time to formulate teams, schedules, order uniforms, secure coaches and other volunteers, set up insurance and field rental, etc.  After that time, registration returns to the regular price and players may need to be placed on a waiting list.  Registration includes a team jersey, shorts, socks and supplemental insurance for any injury that occurs during an AYSO-sanctioned event.
