Just click on the "Register Now" button at the top of the page to start. If you have a username from a previous year, please do not make a new account. If you do not remember your account username or password, you can contact us at [email protected] to help reset your password or help you remember your username. We will only provide those details to the email account listed in our system for a particular user. Your account is valuable during the season as your coach will be able to communicate with you through that account. 

Registration will end at 11pm on July 31st and players registering after that will be placed on a wait list and will not be guaranteed a spot on a team. 

Teams will be formed in August. Games will end on or about November 19th. Extended play for those teams, 10U and above, that had enough volunteer/referee points could go through to December. With some teams from the older divisions being able to play in one small tournament on a Saturday in January. Those teams are determined by our local playoff standings held in December. Games for 10U and above are during the week, with games for 8U and below on Saturday mornings. We do offer an extended travel season which is optional that runs from December into the spring months. While we would like to see all players have the opportunity to play these extra games, those teams are limited by the number of trained volunteer coaches who wish to continue to play. The more coaches we have, the more teams that can be formed for the spring. We will have a Spring season that starts in March for 6U-14U. This will be coed. Registration will open mid-October.

Per National policy, the only team member(s) a head coach may specify be on his/her team is his/her own child or children, therefore players who have a parent, grandparent, or legal guardian who is willing to coach in that specific division will be given priority to be placed on a team.
Volunteer registration is also available now.

Q: Can I request for my child to have a specific coach or play on a team with their friends?
A: Unfortunately, we do not honor special requests for teammates and coaches. One of the AYSO philosophies is balanced teams, and we try our best to create balanced teams based on players ages, experience and player ratings.

Q: What happens if my child's team does not get a coach?
A: AYSO is an 100% volunteer-based organization, and we rely on parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, older siblings (18 or older) and family friends to volunteer as coaches for your children's teams. If no one from a team steps up to volunteer as a team coach, then we are left with no alternative but to disband the team. This is a last resort, but without volunteers we cannot have teams. This is why it is so important for parents to step up to volunteer. Coaching is also a very rewarding experience; each volunteer coach plays a very important role as a role model and mentor to the children they coach. We offer online and in person coaching courses.  If you are interested in coaching, please email [email protected]


Per National policy, the only team member(s) a head coach may specify be on his/her team is his/her own child or children, therefore players who have a parent, grandparent, or legal guardian who is willing to coach in that specific division will be given priority to be placed on a team.
