Registration for Fall 2016/Spring 2017 season - MAIL-IN REGISTRATIONS

Because AYSO is an all volunteer organization, we prefer to meet our player's parents face-to-face at registration. This not only allows us to show the faces behind this great organization to you, but also gives us the chance to discuss volunteer opportunities. We have volunteer openings for coaches, referees and division coordinators. No experience required. We supply the training for free!
Our early bird registration sessions were in May and our second chance registration sessions were held in June. For those of you who have missed our registration sessions in May and June, we are now temporarily offering the opportunity to mail your registration in by mail.

EXCEPTION: Registration for some division is limited or closed (see table below). Boys and girls in these divisions will be placed on a waiting list. To be added to our waiting list, you have to pre-register your child through eAYSO (see below). We will look for players from the waiting list to put on teams that are short players. We will contact you only if we are able to place your child on a team.

AYSO relies on parents to volunteer as coaches and referees. Your children benefit from your support and participation to make it happen. You are invited to volunteer! NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY! We will provide a training course and manual to help you get started. Other areas need volunteers, too!

Registration Priority

One of the basic principles of AYSO is "everyone plays". Our goal is to ensure that we can place every child on a team, but the reality is that we only have as many teams as we have adult volunteers to be coaches and referees. If we do not have enough adult volunteers, children will be placed on teams in the following order of priority.

  1. Children of active AYSO volunteers (e.g.: coaches, referees, board members)
  2. Returning players registered on May 14 or May 21, 2016
  3. New players registered on May 14 or May 21, 2016.
  4. Players registered on June 24 or June 30, 2016.
  5. Mail-in registrations
  6. Players on the waiting list (registering through eAYSO only).

Steps to get your child pre-registered online via eAYSO:

  1. Go to the  eAYSO website.
  2. Follow the on screen instructions for Parents.
  3. Enter Region "1112".
  4. When entering Child Information, enter applicable Location Code and Uniform Size. (Uniforms will be ordered in a complete set of one size only. No mixing of sizes.)
  5. Player registrations require an electronic signature. Make sure to follow all the steps. Your application won't be completed until you've clicked the SUBMIT button all the way at the end of the registration process.
  6. When done, print out two copies of the registration form, sign the Concussion Information Sheet, and mail both copies plus payment to the address listed above.
