Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Is my child the right age for AYSO soccer?
  • Our player programs are open to all children ages 3-18 can play AYSO soccer
What makes AYSO different?
  • Our mission is to provide quality youth soccer programs where everyone builds positive character through participation in a safe, fun, family-oriented soccer environment
  • AYSO's six philosophies separate us from the pack:
    • Everyone Plays
    • Balanced Teams
    • Open Registration
    • Positive Coaching
    • Good Sportsmanship
    • Player Development
Besides the registration fee, what other expenses can I anticipate?
  • Shin guards (required) - can be purchased at Walmart, Target, etc., or a sporting goods store
  • Practice ball - see our "What Size Ball Do I Need?" chart
  • Water bottle
  • Bug spray is highly recommended
  • Snacks - each family is often requested to bring snacks for the team at a game during the season
  • In addition, the coach may request a small amount to cover the expenses of an end-of-season team party
Do I have to get soccer shoes for my child to play?
  • Soccer shoes ("cleats") are not required, but are highly recommended
  • If you buy soccer shoes, please keep in mind they cannot have a toe cleat (baseball shoes have a toe cleat)
  • If you buy them or already have them, the toe cleat can often be removed with a utility knife
What if I haven't heard from my coach?
  • After registration, the AYSO board has many responsibilities, including the following:
    • Creating teams
    • Preparing game schedules
    • Ordering uniforms
    • Processing payments
    • Obtaining volunteer coaches
    • Scheduling referees
    • And More
  • Once that is complete, we have a meeting with all of the coaches - usually in mid-July - where the coaches receive their player rosters
  • Your coach will then contact you toward the end of July regarding schedules and other pertinent information
  • Teams are not allowed to start practicing until August 1
