Registration FAQ’s

How old does my child have to be to play AYSO soccer?
Your child needs to be at least 4 years old by July 31 of the year in order to participate in the Fall/Spring seasons.

My child was too young to register during the Fall season, but is now 4 years old. Will he or she be able to play in the Spring?
Unfortunately, no. This is for insurance reasons. The age guide we must follow comes from AYSO’s national headquarters. Because some Regions in the country play only one season per year, and some play several, the AYSO date of eligibility determination is only adjusted annually. Our Area’s ‘year’ runs from Fall to Fall, which means that our Spring playing season is technically part of the same ‘year’ as the previous Fall. Whatever age division a child was eligible for in the Fall season is the division he or she will be placed in during the Spring season.

Can I register my child in a region if I don’t live within that region?

How much is registration? What are my fees used for?
Registration varies in cost per each region. Registration fees are used for insurance, equipment, field maintenance and development, training and registration materials, and other expenses. Some regions provide a uniform as part of registration fees, and some require uniforms be purchased separately.

Can my neighbor register my child?
No. Registration forms can only be signed by a parent or legal guardian.

Once registered, will my child definitely play?
Our goal is that all kids are placed on teams; however this could be limited by a lack of coaching volunteers.

When do the players get called?
The coaches will call the players after they receive their team rosters. They will give you all the information you will need in regards to practice days, times and location. Teams usually begin practice approximately 2 to 3 weeks before the first game of the season.

It’s been a while since we registered and my child has not been called. What do I do?
Please do not panic, even if you see teams practicing and your child has not been called. Not all teams begin practice at the same time. However if you believe too much time has elapsed, feel free to contact your local Coach Administrator or Regional Commissioner.

My child has decided he doesn’t want to play. Can a get a refund?
Players withdrawing prior to his or her team’s first practice may be eligible for a refund. After that, unfortunately, fees are not usually refundable. To keep fees as low as possible, regions usually order and pay for all supplies at the start of the season.
