When is the AYSO soccer season?

The main season is in the fall with registration taking place in the spring, usually beginning in March..

What equipment is needed?

Soccer has limited equipment requirements. Shin guards are mandatory during practice and games. Full-coverage shoes are required, and it is advisable to use shoes designed specifically for soccer. Most AYSO teams play in uniforms (jersey, shorts and socks) supplied by the Region which are included in the registration fee. Regions also provide field equipment, such as goals, nets and flags. A limited number of balls will be supplied for practices and games, but it is ideal for every child to have their own soccer ball for practicing and playing on their own.

How much does it cost to sign up?

AYSO is very affordable, but the cost differs depending on the Region. The fee is used for insurance, equipment, uniforms, program development, field rental and other needs. None of the Region leadership receives payment for their time.

Who runs my AYSO Region?

Volunteers - AYSO is a volunteer organization with more than 220,000 parents and friends working as coaches, referees and administrators..  Coaches, referees, a registrar, a treasurer, a fundraiser, a webmaster, a volunteer coordinator, a safety director, a publicist, - many people, all contributing their time and efforts to make AYSO a great program for our soccer-playing kids. AYSO works because the volunteers work.

What am I expected to do as an AYSO parent?

Take your child to practices and games with the proper equipment and, if you are not coaching, ask your coach how you can assist at practices and at games. Support your child by giving encouragement and showing an interest in his or her team. Help your child learn soccer skills and good sportsmanship. Teach your child that hard work and an honest effort are often more important than victory. 

Volunteer to be part of the Region:  Coach, Assistant Coach, Referee, Assistant Referee, Board Member, or help out with one or more of the volunteer roles that your Region needs to make soccer available every Saturday for the kids.  Remember, your AYSO Region is run by100% volunteers.

Always Be Positive:

You are not on the team, but you have strong influence on the team's environment. Applaud good plays by your child's team and by the opposing team. Support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from youth sporting activities.

Be Enthusiastic And Supportive:

Let children set their own goals and play the game for themselves. Don't put too heavy a burden on your child to win games.

Reinforce Positive Behavior:

The best way to help a child to achieve goals and reduce the natural fear of failure is through positive reinforcement. No one likes to make a mistake. If your child does make one, remember that he or she is still learning. Encourage your child's efforts and point out the good things your child accomplished.

Let Coaches Coach And Referees Ref:

Coaches and referees are usually parents and always volunteers. They volunteer their time to help make your child's youth soccer experience a positive one. They need your support, too. What coaches and referees don't need is your help in coaching from the sidelines. So please refrain from coaching during games and practices. Referees are important for fun, fair and safe games. Treat them and their calls fairly and respectfully.

How do I become an AYSO volunteer?

They will be most helpful - and happy - to find the right job for you.
