AYSO Region 69: Brentwood/ Pacific Palisades/ Topanga

Overview of Programs

SPECIAL NOTE REGARDING COVID-19 CRISIS

This year,  AYSO Region 69's Fall  Program will most likely look different than it has in the past, due to the COVID-19 virus and state and local restrictions.  Your family’s safety is most important to us.   We will not know what we can offer until we receive the OK and guidelines  from local officials, and are able to secure field space.   Currently, none of our fields are available.  This will hopefully change in July.  We await state and local clearance.

We wanted to outline the following potential options:

1.  Fall season like past seasons, weekday practices (6U and older) and weekend
     games, possibly starting Sept 8 (no game Sept 19), ending Nov 21.  No
     restrictions.  We are able to secure all of our field space.
2.  Fall season with restrictions and guidelines to follow for  practices and games, 
     possibly team and field size reductions, temperature checks at home, hand
     washing, masks  and social distancing for spectators, etc.  Field space will also  
     factor in to what we can offer.
3.  Fall season with restrictions and guidelines for practices only due to state and 
     county rules not allowing teams to interact, and lack of sufficient  fields.  

We are asking all interested families to PRE-REGISTER this month.  This will NOT require payment, as players are technically signing up for the WAIT LIST.    

Once we have  the green light to begin, and  secure field space, with your family’s safety in mind, we will determine what we can offer, what to charge, and will send an email to you about making payment to COMPLETE REGISTRATION, which is removal from the WAIT LIST.

At that time, we will open the VOLUNTEER Registration for COACHES, REFEREES, and TEAM MANAGERS.

Region 69's usual message:

REGION 69 AYSO SOCCER PROGRAMS:

We have developed our soccer programs to be age-appropriate and developmentally challenging based on our Six Philosophies, which are the essence of AYSO’s Mission and Vision and guide all that we do.

  • Everyone Plays
  • Balanced Teams
  • Open Registration
  • Positive Coaching
  • Good Sportsmanship
  • Player Development

CORE PROGRAM (Ages 6-18)

Our core program is the foundation for all the fun, excitement and learning that happens on the fields in the FALL.  This is where the large majority of our players start and fall in love with soccer and make memories that will last a lifetime.  The above mentioned 6 philosophies are the essence of our core program, and all of our other programs and it all starts with Everyone Plays. This means that no player spends their soccer experience sitting on the bench, they play at least 3 quarters of every game. Registration is opened to any player in the core program regardless of ability, as long as there is space.  Teams are put together by gender and age, see AGE DIVISIONS, and are balanced in a way that makes playing soccer about the experience, not wins or losses. It’s not about blowing out another team with an unbelievable score; it’s about sportsmanship and learning to be the best possible teammate and opponent. Developing players is what we’re about because soccer skills and life skills go hand in hand. We want to get players on the field, provide them with good positive coaches, and teach them to play soccer.

VIP PROGRAM (Ages 5+)

The VIP Program (Very Important Players) provides a quality soccer experience for children and adults whose physical or mental disabilities make it difficult to successfully participate on mainstream teams.  The program is held Saturday mornings in the FALL at the Calvary Christian School field, and sometimes in the SPRING. 

5 & UNDER PROGRAM (Ages 4-5)

Our 5U division is about exposing children to soccer as a game, without the pressure to win. The children are introduced to soccer skills like kicking and dribbling in a fun and nurturing environment. Best of all, they find out that soccer is something they can do!

On Saturdays, there will be a one-hour time slot for practice and a game experience.  Our professional trainers work with the players for the first 30 minutes, then a 5-minute break, followed by a 20-minute game, with a 5-minute break at halftime.  Players are expected to arrive 5 minutes prior to the time assigned (no earlier) so they are ready when the trainers begin.

6 & UNDER PROGRAM (Ages 5-6)

The 6U division is also all about exposing children to soccer as a game, without the pressure to win. The children are introduced to soccer skills like kicking and dribbling in a fun and nurturing environment. Best of all, they find out that soccer is something they can do!

Players will be assigned a team and volunteer parent coach for Saturday games.  During the week players can sign up for our optional 45-minute practice clinics.  Simply select the day of the week and location that works best for your family.  Then on Saturdays, join your teammates during your specified one-hour time slot for practice and a game experience.  Our professional trainers work with the players for the first 25 minutes, then a 5-minute break, followed by a 25-minute game, with a 5-minute break at halftime.  Players are expected to arrive 5 minutes prior to the time assigned (no earlier) so they are ready when the trainers begin.

PDP - PLAYER DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM (Ages 7-14)

PDP is an optional, invitation-only program for those kids who show a keen interest and are passionate about playing soccer at a higher level.  PDP players will continue to play on their Core Fall Season Team with 1 practice per week and 1 game on Saturdays.  In addition, PDP players will also participate in 1 PDP practice per week with 3-4 mini-tournaments on Sundays throughout the Fall.  

This supplemental training program will be run by me and our wonderful staff of professional trainers.  

Our aim with PDP is to give the more interested, more competitive players, a chance to not only experience the awesomeness of AYSO and playing on a Core regular season team, but to also play with and against better players and get introduced early to foundational technical skills, tactical fundamentals, and game intelligence.  

POST SEASON PLAY / TOURNAMENT SEASON (Ages 9-14)

The All-Star Program provides an opportunity for skilled players to continue their AYSO soccer experience at an accelerated level by competing in tournaments against other All-Star teams from neighboring communities and states.  All CORE players who have played in 3/4 of their league games (no more than 2 absences for reasons other than injury, illness, or late assignment) are eligible to try out for THEIR division’s  EXTRA/All-Star/Tournament Teams.  The Tournament Season begins with practice in December or January, and extends to June, or perhaps optionally longer, depending on the team.

AYSO EXTRA PROGRAM (Ages 9-14)

The AYSO Extra program is a competitive soccer league, starting in the Fall, designed to provide a higher level of play for those players who possess the appropriate skills, abilities, and drive.  Games will be played with other regions from Area P as well as from Areas C, D and F.  The Extra program is designed to enhance each player's experience and individual growth through the game of soccer while retaining the spirit, organization and six philosophies of AYSO: Everyone Plays, Balanced Teams (balanced through competitive bracketing), Open Registration, Positive Coaching, Good Sportsmanship, and Player Development. 

Tryouts for the Fall 2018 season have already taken place and teams have been selected. Fall 2019 tryouts will take place in May, 2019

COED IM (INTRAMURALS)

This is a Coed Intramural Program for our older players.  These players may also participate on a league team.

When:   Mondays September - November  
Time:     7-8:30pm
Where:  Pali High Football Field

Each player will be issued a reversible tank top to be used each year.  And Players will manage themselves with Adult oversight.

REGION 69 SPRING LEAGUE

Region 69 Spring League is a 10-week Skills Development League completely run by our staff of professional trainers.  It involves one (or two) weekday training sessions and one Saturday game each week.  This skills program runs from March-May and focuses on developing the individual technical ability of each player with an emphasis on ball control, dribbling, passing, and shooting.
