How to Get Started in AYSO
AYSO features Open Registration, meaning that all children ages 4 to 18 years who want to play soccer are eligible. Interest and enthusiasm are the only criteria for playing.
Check out the Age Divisions page to determine which division your child will participate, then contact the registration contact for your region, or the region that is closest to your community, as indicated on the Registration Information page.
The Everyone Plays philosophy determines that each region's goal is for kids to play soccer so AYSO mandates that every player on every team must play at least half of every game.
The official playing season of AYSO is from August 1st through July 31st of the following year. However, regions are able to adjust its season dates with approval of the Area Director and Section Director. To find out the playing season, please contact your region's registration contact.
All players must have the written consent of a parent or legal guardian, unless the player is of legal age, and the approval of the regional commissioner.
