AYSO Region 69: Brentwood/ Pacific Palisades/ Topanga

Welcome Letter


This Winter,  AYSO Region 69 will offer and extension of the Fall  Program, which was a social distance, practice only program, due to the COVID-19 virus and state and local restrictions.  Your family’s safety is most important to us.  Thank you for your patience as we struggled, and secured field space at Will Rogers State Park.

Here is Region 69's Plan:

v  Provide a practice only, social distance  practice program  starting on Saturday, Dec 5,  at Will Rogers State Park.    Ending date is February 13.  Cost $200.

 v  8-10 kids on a team. Friends can be together. (Reciprocal request must be made, but keep in mind that it will not always be possible) Players will bring their own ball and wear a mask in transit to and from their assigned field. (Any additional equipment used will be sanitized between sessions). During sessions, players may be mask-free and maintain a distance of eight feet, which is the public health recommendation during higher exertion activities.

v  45-minute weekly sessions (with a 15-minute window to ensure a socially-distant check-in and exit).  This time could be extended for 10U and older, depending on enrollment. Staggered start times to provide the safest coming and going of players.

v  Full safety protocols set by the Los Angeles County Health Department will be in effect. Temperature checks, hand sanitizing upon entry and exit, social distance activities, and mask-wearing for check-in and exit.

v  Due to the complexity of enforcing the safety protocols, and Will Rogers State Park’s regulations, this year the coaching will be handled by our region’s trainers.

v Families that DID NOT PARTICIPATE during the Fall Program will want to indicate that they need to purchase the $50 Historian Pass for Park entry when they register.  Fall Program families have all received their Pass, which expires Sept, 2021.

Parking attendants and field monitors will help ensure safety measures are being followed.

We want to be clear. No games or scrimmages can take place at this time. We need to be in phase 4; we’re not there yet.  Should the County lift restrictions, and Will Rogers staff agrees, we will adjust.

Also, as part of our agreement with Will Rogers, parents will not be allowed on the sidelines or on the berm overlooking the field. That’s one of the reasons we are not offering the program to 5U and 6U players at this time.  You may park in the upper lot and watch from your car.  Also, while you wait, consider taking a hike in this State Park.

We DO need Volunteers to be Will Rogers Field Monitors to ensure smooth transitioning between sessions with players entering and exiting the Polo Field.  You will find this option under Volunteer, and must complete the form. (Most of you will be directed to the Sterling site to complete the form)  Without enough volunteers, we will need to cancel the program.  Your shift starts 15 minutes prior to your child's session, and ends about 10 minutes after, when all the children have been picked up.

While this is not perfect, considering the circumstances, it’s pretty darn good. Here is an opportunity for our kids to get exercise, training, and develop their skills. It’s a chance for them to have in-person interactions and to connect with their friends and neighbors. And most of all, it’s a time to once again feel like part of a community

It is  essential for you to respond and register by Nov 22.  We need the time to figure out how many teams we need, and player placements.  We anticipate  300-400 players, and cannot accommodate any more than that.  Tell your friends.



Region 69's usual WELCOME note !  The programs described below have  NOT been  modified due to COVID-19 and Safety concerns, but the rest of the message HAS been updated.

As AYSO enters its 57th year with close to 550,000 children participating in over 900 local programs, I am proud to acknowledge that our local program, Region 69, continues to be recognized as a Platinum Region for the outstanding programs offered during the 2019 season.  Every Region 69 volunteer made this possible – Thank you!  

We ask for your continued support this season as we enter Region 69’s 46th season.  We are a volunteer-driven organization which requires approximately as many parent volunteers as players to maintain all of our programs and services.   We rely on at least ONE parent from each family to select a task or to become a team sponsor.  Those Volunteering to be a coach, assistant coach, referee, team manager, or Board Member,  MUST complete the VOLUNTEER FORM.   These volunteers will be directed from our website to complete the STERLING VERIFIED VOLUNTEER Application, which will cost the Region $25.    For further information, visit the National website at  


AYSO’s vision is to provide world-class youth soccer programs that enrich children’s lives.  
AYSO's mission is to develop and deliver quality youth soccer programs where everyone builds positive character through participation in a fun, family environment based on these six fundamental principals:  

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


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.


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.


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. 



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.


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.


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, after the  Fall CORE Program.   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.


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 typically take place during the spring.  Due to COVID-19, tryouts have been cancelled at this time.


Our Regional Staff has been working with local, state, and federal officials to secure and improve our limited field space.  Our challenge continues to be the cost and acquisition of field space rental, maintenance, and improvements, thus it was necessary to raise the fee this season.  Starting mid May, the Region will be paying for Volunteer Background checks.  (Previously paid by National Office)

We are asking for additional funds to contribute toward field renovations and the rising cost of field rental, along with maintenance and improvement of all of the fields.  If you are unable to volunteer this season, this is an ideal way to still contribute in a meaningful way to our Region.  

Your continued generous sponsorships and contributions are MOST appreciated.  Those who contribute $2,500 (Field Sponsorship) or more will receive special recognition. We urgently need your donations this year.

TEAM SPONSORSHIPS :  $500/1 player,  $750/2 players,   $1,000/3 players


DONATIONS:  any other amount

AYSO's Safe Haven course and the CDC Concussion Awareness Training program are now MANDATORY for all coaches, assistant coaches, referees, board members and team parents.  It is strongly recommended that ALL parents take these courses (which are online and take less than 1 hour each).  Log in to  Click on the AYSOU tab.  (you might have to click "login")  Click on MY COURSES.
