HOPKINS AYSO REGION 1350

Region 1350 COVID-19 Response:

Please note, due to COVID-19 and the uncertainty of what soccer may look like in the fall, ALL PLAYERS will be placed on a waitlist and parents will not be required to pay registration fees until we know if we will have a fall season.  It is imperative that parents still sign their kids up so the Board can gauge how many players we will have, how many teams we can field, and how many volunteer coaches/refs/etc we will need.
 
As of now, the Fall soccer season games would start the first weekend after Labor day (September 12th, 2020). Practices would start 1-2 weeks prior to the first games, depending on our volunteer coaches schedule. This schedule is subject to change based on our local health department’s recommendations for the prevention of spreading the COVID-19 virus. If we receive further guidelines from our local health departments, we will make sure to communicate as quickly as possible.Thank you, and we hope to see everyone in the fall!


The Hopkins AYSO season runs for 6 weeks in the fall and 6 weeks in the spring.  In the fall, first games are typically scheduled the first Saturday after Labor Day.  In the spring, first games are typically scheduled the second Saturday of April.  The games continue for 6 consecutive weeks.  Our U5, U6, U8, U10, U12 Boys/Girls Divisions play BOTH fall and spring seasons.  The U14 Boys and U18 Boys Divisions play SPRING ONLY.  The U14 Girls (if there is enough interest) will play FALL ONLY.

*Note: We currently don’t have enough girls registered to make a U14 or U18 girls team.  If your daughter is interested in playing U14 or U18, please register your daughter to play (she will be added to the waitlist).  If there is enough interest, we'd love to field a team!  Please contact the registrar, Laura Ford, with any questions ([email protected]).Registration is open all year, but players are placed on a Wait List after the Fall Registration Deadline. 


Fall2020/Spring2021 Registration Deadline: August 1, 2020

Please visit our Facebook Page for the most recent updates and information.  Any players registered after the Fall Registration Deadline will be placed on a Wait List.  The Wait List will be reviewed before the start of the Spring season, and players may be activated and assigned to a team at that time (if there are spaces available).  Parents will not have to pay the registration fee until their child is "activated" in the system and assigned to a team.  Please contact our Registrar, Laura Ford, [email protected] with any questions.

Practices

Practices are scheduled by your child’s individual coach.  All of our coaches are volunteers, and they are given the ability to choose a day/time/location for practices that works for their own work/home schedule.  All practices are held on the various fields located within Hopkins parks and churches. The U5, U6, U8, and U10 divisions practice once a week at Hopkins North Park (or another local location as determined by your child's coach).  The U5 and U6 divisions typically practice for 45 minutes, and the U8 and U10 divisions practice for an hour.  The U12, U14, and U18 divisions have 2 practices per week (typically an hour each).  All practices are held in the evening Monday through Friday.  Your child’s coach will provide parents with a practice schedule.

Games
The U5 through U10 division games are held on Saturdays at Hopkins North Park.  The U5 through U10 divisions will have 1 game per week.  U5 through U8 games will be held between 9a and 11:30a.  U10 games will be held between 11:00a and 2:00p.  The U12, U14, and U18 games are also typically held on Saturdays, but can also (rarely) be held on weekday evenings.  Your child's coach will provide a game schedule before your first game.

Hopkins AYSO follows the FIFA, AYSO, and Hopkins AYSO rules for the games. Hopkins AYSO has the “3 quarter per game” rule. Each player on a team has to play 3 quarters before any other player on the same team may play 4 quarters. The total number of players in a given age group and the number of coaches have an affect on our ability to maintain this rule.

U5 & U6 Games

The U5 & U6 games are “small-sided” 3v3 (U5) or 4v4 (U6).  There are no goalkeepers.  The ball size is 3. Coaches are out on the field with the players coaching and reffing the games.  Games are divided into 4 quarters with substitution breaks between each quarter.  Quarter length is 5 minutes for U5 and 8 minutes for U6.  The U5 and U6 divisions use Hopkins North Park for their games.

U8 Games

The U8 games are 7v7 with a goalkeeper.  The ball size is 3. Quarter length is 10 minutes.  These games are refereed by trained Adult and Youth (Assistant) Referees.  The U8 division uses Hopkins North Park for their games.

Quarter length is 12.5 minutes.  These games are refereed by trained Adult and Youth (Assistant) Referees.  There are no team standings.  The U10 division uses Hopkins North Park for their games (NOTE: This is a change for Fall 2019 Season.  U10 games/practices were previously held at Hopkins Community Church, but due to poor field conditions and standing water, games and practices will be moved to the Hopkins North Park for Fall 2019).

The U12 games are 9v9. A player may be a goalkeeper for 1 or 2 quarters per game and must fulfill the 3 quarter per game rule by playing in another position. The ball size is 4.
