Spring Select Program

What is Spring Select? 

AYSO Spring Select is a competitive season for teams comprised of players selected by a particular coach to participate. There is no requirement that a player have played on a competitive team before; however the player must have played in at least half of the previous Fall season. The Spring Select program runs from March through May/June. Teams may also elect to participate in tournaments beginning January through July. Participation in tournaments may be subject to additional fees.

Spring Select 2024 Criteria

Spring Select Program Criteria (Players & Coaches)

The Spring Select program is an amazing opportunity for players and coaches alike to further develop and enhance their skills beyond the Fall Core season. Spring Select teams play against other Select teams in neighboring AYSO Regions. It is a great way for the players to improve their skills as soccer players in a fun and competitive environment. The season typically consists of 10 games, where half the games are played in Murrieta and half are away at surrounding regions.

Participation in Spring Select requires an increased commitment from both parents and players, including attendance at all practices and games as well as a sense of responsibility toward coaches and other team-mates. Many Spring Select teams will choose to compete in tournaments.

These tournaments include travel and both Saturday and possibly Sunday matches. The team is financially self-supporting, so fundraising will be required for each player and parents are expected to participate. Teams are also required to provide a 3-person referee crew and team 


* To be eligible to participate in the Select program a player must be registered, and must have participated, in the prior Fall Season, having played no less than 50% of regular season games. Special consideration will be made for players who were injured, had illnesses, or relocated during the season.

* Elected Spring Select program coaches will use the Fall season to scout Fall Core players for possible inclusion in the Spring Select program. Select Coaches will "select" players of their choosing for the Select program. 

* The number of teams that will be formed in each division varies from year to year. This will primarily depend on the number of qualified and experienced volunteer coaches that apply. The Regional RC reserves the final decision on the number of formed teams.

All interested coaches who meet the following prerequisites are eligible to apply and must submit an online application prior to the deadline. Coaches must:

  •  Have current AYSO Safe Haven, CDC concussion training, Safe Sport certification, Live Scan
  •  Be certified to coach in the division he/she is applying for and have 1-year experience.
  •  Be a current registered AYSO volunteer.
  •  Be in good standing with Region 1463 with no previous disciplinary issues.
  •  Be able to provide/maintain a minimum of 3-referees for the division applying for.
  •  Be able to follow the Spring Select guidelines and AYSO Philosophies.

A high level of commitment is expected from the coaches, players, and the parents. Select is for motivated and enthusiastic players. Other obligations MUST be disclosed, and while some players are involved in other sports, most Select coaches require that training sessions and games take AT LEAST equal precedence with other activities.

The Spring Select regular season usually runs from early March through June. The season is typically comprised of 10 games, half of which are at home and the rest of the games are away in surrounding AYSO Regions like Beaumont, Hemet, Menifee, Redlands and Upland just to name a few.

While most games are on Saturdays, there is a possibility that games may be scheduled during the week and Sundays. There are also Spring Select playoffs at the conclusion of the season and those dates are T.B.D.

In addition to regular season games, most Spring Select teams will also compete in AYSO Soccer tournaments. Each team is self-funded, so teams will need to fund raise money to pay for tournaments. Most tournaments require game play on Saturday and Sunday.

Remember that evaluators are looking for different things and it is a very subjective process. Evaluators are looking for player skill, speed, effort, sportsmanship, understanding of the game. Positional needs of the team, team chemistry and attendance can also be deciding factors. Furthermore, volunteer referee commitment and family volunteer commitment also play a role.

Registration Costs

Spring Select Registration Costs

SPRING SELECT COST: $450 per Player Total

The price for registration varies each season and this is due to several factors. However, the costs will be more than Fall season. Spring Select registration fees include regional costs, uniforms, field rental fees, and other miscellaneous costs. Teams participating in additional tournaments may also incur entry fees, lodging, transportation, and food costs, which are the responsibility of each family and not covered by registration fees.  

However, teams will have opportunities to fundraise for tournaments and other add-on items as well. Many Select teams will also fundraise to purchase items such as team back packs and warmups. This will make everything affordable for everyone. 

If your child is selected for the Spring Select program, the first step is for a parent to sign up their child for Spring 2024 Registration as normal. Once the Spring Core Program Registration fee has been paid, and it's been confirmed by the Spring Select Coach that a child has been selected, an invoice will be sent to cover the difference adding up to the $250 fee.
