Fall 2020 Registration


FALL 2020 UPDATE



We hope you and your families are doing well. 

With a sad and disappointed heart, we have to inform you that the upcoming 2020 AYSO Fall Soccer Season has been cancelled.  This decision was not made easily, but all Regions and Areas in Section 10 have made the same decision. Everyone was hoping and looking forward to getting the Fall Season going, but the changes in the Covid-19 Emergency in L.A. County and the State as whole have changed that outlook. The rise in Covid-19 cases statewide, the state toggling back opening different sectors, CIF moving all high schools sports to next year and schools unable to open have made having a Fall Soccer Season impossible as of today.

Although we will not be able to have a traditional formal fall season, your Section 10, Area 10V and Region <<795>> board members have all expressed their dedication to try and get any sort of activity/events in place for our soccer players once the state and local leaders allow. These possible activities or events could be skills training or jamboree style pickup games or even the possibility of a more formal spring season. As of now, all options are available, but decisions will not be able to be made until the situation in the state, county and city change. Once we have more information and are able to have events, we will inform you immediately. 

Once we are able to resume play in any form, we will need to abide by the guidelines set by the state and county health departments.  AYSO has put together a microsite that has a lot of information for our parents and volunteers, including the Return to Play Guidelines. The website is a live document, meaning changes will be made as they are announced on the Federal and State level. Local county and city laws will be monitored by your Section, Area and Region and we will all keep our AYSO families informed. You may access the AYSO microsite here at https://www.aysovolunteers.org/returning-to-play/

With regard to 2020 Fall Season registration fees paid, we will be issuing refunds for the full amount of fees paid. You do not need to send any emails or refund request forms as we will process refunds for all paid Fall 2020 Registrations automatically. Please allow us 3-4 weeks to get all of the refunds processed and sent out. 

Please keep yourself and your families safe and healthy. We miss our AYSO families and players terribly, but look forward to seeing you in the near future when we are able to get back on the field.

Thank you and take care.

Sincerely,

Traci Lehman
254 Regional Commisioner

Playing Seasons

The Fall 2020 Season has been canceled.

The 16-18U Divisions are run by Area 10. The 16-18U season ends prior to Thanksgiving to allow players to participate on their high school teams. Games are sometimes played on Sunday, All play is against other Regions in our Area. Season lasts approximately 10 weeks.

If you have not heard from a coach by August 20th , please contact your Division Coordinator at the email address listed on the Board Member page of our website

 

Late Registration

 
Regular registration will close when the allocated number of players is achieved. If space becomes available, players will be placed on teams based on player rating, not necessarily the order the registration forms were received. We must first make every effort to keep the teams balanced. We will contact the player's parents by telephone and by e-mail. If we do not receive a response within 48 hours, we will move on to the next eligible player on the waiting list.

To avoid late registration- Register Early and Volunteer!

Only the children of Volunteer Coaches, Referees and Board Members are guaranteed to be placed on teams.


Special Requests

With over 1,400 children playing soccer in Region 254, it is impossible for AYSO to be flexible with practice and game conflicts with non-AYSO activities. This includes requests for friends or schoolmates to be on the same teams or carpooling needs. The only way to choose you practice day/time is to volunteer to coach. The number one dictate of AYSO after “Everyone Plays” is “Balanced Teams”. Please respect that effort. In accordance with AYSO National Rules, every child will play in his/her league age division during the regular fall season.
