Players in the 15U-Coed division will be assigned to teams, have practices during the week and will have a game schedule similar to younger age divisions. This group will consist of middle school 8th graders as well as high school freshmen. The high school freshmen in this age group are given the choice whether they want to play on a team in the 15U-Coed division or play up in the 19U-Coed division (jamboree - no teams, no practices, games on Saturdays at 12p and on Sundays at 1p).

FALL SEASON: Practices begin late August. Coaches determine practice location, time and day(s). Games September through October.

SPRING SEASON: Practices begin late March. Games April through early June.

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!

LEARN MORE ABOUT SOCCER SHOES, SHIN GUARDS, BALL SIZES, and other soccer "know-how" at registration.

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
  3. New players registering during Early Bird registration events
  4. New players registering after Early Bird registration events

Fees - Fall 2017/Spring 2018

  • $120 per child (includes uniform)
  • $80 for returning players not needing a new uniform
  • U05: $80 (includes a jersey)
