**Expedited uniform charges may apply for late registrations**

Sports Connect Transaction Fee: $2.75/Transaction in Sports Connect
 (This is a new processing fee charged by Sports Connect and is charged on every "checkout" transaction in Sports Connect. This fee goes directly to Sports Connect - the Region never sees any of this.)

Late Registration Fee: $25.00/player, beginning on 8/20/2020 for the Fall 2020 season. This is a nonrefundable administrative fee for the Region processing your registration after the regular registration is closed. This will not be refunded under any circumstances.
 

Please note there are a number of discounts offered to reduce the cost of registration.  They are as follows:
Returning Player Discount: $5.00/player discount on Spring 2021 registration fee ONLY when your player plays in both the Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 seasons.
Multi Player Family Discount: $5.00 discount for 3 or more children in the same family.  (Only applies to fees for the 3rd child and higher.  The 1st two players will not have the discount applied to them.) 

The registration fee includes the cost of the uniform:  Jersey, shorts, and a pair of soccer socks.  If your players plays with us in the Fall soccer season, they will be on the same team in the following Spring and will wear the same uniform in most instances.  If you need to order a bigger size in the spring or a replacement uniform, the cost is $20.00.  You can include an additional $20 when your register.  Please let us know as soon as possible if you need to order a new uniform in the spring.  We try to order the uniforms 5 weeks in advance.

We will only be able to accept credit/debit card payments
.  You may purchase a pre-paid credit card to use for the purpose of payment.   Your billing information must match that of your credit card exactly.  If your middle initial appears on your card, then you must include it beside your first name. Failed transactions usually mean that information you have within your account does not match. 

PLAYER AGE DIVISION DETERMINATION

The AYSO registration system places players in Age Divisions by BIRTH YEAR.  Please see the updated chart below for MY2020, which covers the Fall 2020 & Spring 2021 seasons, to see what division your child will be in.

2020-2021 Age Determination Chart.pdf

We have Age Divisions for players from 3-19. The Playground soccer division covers our 3-year-old players, while the Schoolyard division is for our 4-year-old players.  For players ages 5-6, we have a 6U Age Division.  Sometimes your child's birth year may show both Schoolyard and 6U, or Playground and Schoolyard.  If your child is new to soccer, we recommend you choose the earlier division.  We want soccer to be fun for your child.  Learning the basics is the fundamentals of AYSO and is important for player development.  If your child has played in a division already or has older siblings that play, they may be fine to play in the older division that is presented.

Please know that, if you select different Age Divisions for the fall and following spring seasons, you will be responsible for the cost of a new uniform in the spring.  The cost of this uniform is $20.  This means that if you register your child for Schoolyard in the Fall 2020 season, and then register them for 6U in the Spring 2021 season, you will be charged $20 for your player's Spring 2021 6U uniform.

REFUND POLICY

1)    The $20 AYSO Membership Fee (formerly known as the National Player Fee) is non-refundable and non-transferable. This is an annual member fee to participate in AYSO. Membership in AYSO is required for each Membership Year (8/1 - 7/31) before a member may participate in any AYSO program or event. This fee entitles the member to all benefits for that membership year, including the Soccer Accident Insurance.

2)    Any player who attends at least one practice and/or one AYSO team event and/or game is no longer entitled to a full refund.  Full refunds will not be considered once uniforms are ordered. 

3)    A partial refund may be considered within the first three weeks of the season, minus the cost of the uniform, the Soccer Accident Insurance (SAI) and a nominal administrative fee. 

4)    After the first game of the season, the Regional Board may not consider player fee refunds unless special circumstances warrant consideration.  The special circumstances request must be presented to the regional board in writing. 

5)    All refunds must be requested in writing, and a self addressed stamped envelope provided in order to return the fee if circumstances do not permit the payment be made in person.


REGISTRATION POLICIES

Registration Policies:   Please  use this website for registration.

1.  Teams will be formed to assure proper balance of teams within each age division. For this reason, we cannot accept coach requests, and we do not accept player requests for anyone other than siblings in the same Age Division. We want our teams to be as evenly matched as possible while providing our players a chance to play with many different players.  

2.  Coaches may only specify to have their own children on their team, provided they are within the proper age range for the division the parent is coaching. 

3.  We will do our best to place siblings on the same team IF they are eligible for the same age division.  Player divisions are made according to age and skill level, and there can be vast size and skill differences between age groups that make it unsafe for children to play in an age division other than their own. It is not our practice for a player to be moved up.  Our Coach Administrators may make the decision to do so, but it may prevent a player from being allowed to play in tournaments

4.  Practice night requests cannot be guaranteed. We allow all of our coaches, in coordination with our Coach Administrators, to select their practice nights.  Since teams are formed first, and then coaches are selected, there is no guarantee that your player will get the practice night you want.  The only way to ensure your player gets a certain practice night is to volunteer to head coach their team.  

5.  Once uniforms are ordered, teams are final. 

6. Parents will need to provide a birth certificate for any new players.  You can upload a picture of the birth certificate by logging into your account on this website.  Click on the pencil next to your player's name to edit.  Scroll down to the date of birth and there should be an upload button.  Click on the save/update button.  Once uploaded, an AYSO Board member will review and then delete the certificate for security purposes. If you do not wish to use the electronic upload process, you may bring a copy of the birth certificate to the first practice, and we will verify in person.

7. Every season it is required that both the player and a parent sign the AYSO CDC Concussion Awareness form.  One should be provided for you before your first practice.  If you will not be there to sign the form, you can print one out using the below link, sign and date it - both the player and the parent - and have your player bring it with them to their first practice.
