Registration FAQ

This is our first time playing in AYSO or in Newbury Park. What do I need to do?

You will need to bring the player's birth certificate (original or copy, we don't keep it) for age verification to the in-person event. If the player is going to be in 10U or older, please have them attend the in-person event as well so that we can evaluate their skills. Please note that this is not a tryout. Everyone who registers will get to play. This is to help us balance the teams, which is one of AYSO's core principles.

What if I can't come to the in-person registration event?

Do you have a friend, neighbor, or relative who can do it for you? The only part of registration that must be done by a parent/legal guardian is the electronic signature on the application. The early bird registration fee of $125 ends on May 19, 2018, with the regular fee of $160 applicable thereafter, and your child will go onto the waiting list, with no guarantee of a spot. If you absolutely cannot make it to either of the registration events, please contact the registrar to make arrangements.

OK, I've registered. Now what?

After the registration period closes, the AYSO Region 42 board recruits coaches and forms teams, which will be distributed to the coaches around the end of July. Until then, sit tight. You should expect to hear from your coach around the beginning to middle of August. In the meantime, have you considered volunteering? We need all the help we can get!

Does my child have to play in the assigned division?

The player is assigned to a division based on the year of birth. We will only consider allowing them to play in a different one in very limited circumstances, and only if the player wants to "play up" (play in an older division). Requests to play in a younger division will not be granted. Please contact the division director for details.

Who will be on my team?

For 7U and below, players are assigned to teams randomly. From 8U and up, coach ratings from the previous year are used to ensure the teams are relatively balanced in terms of skill. AYSO is committed to balancing teams every season to ensure that every child has a safe and positive experience.

Can't I play on the same team as Mike? / I want to be on Coach Kim's team again!

For 7U and below, this is not a problem for reasonable requests (i.e., we will not create a team where every player asks to play with each other). For 8U, we will attempt to make such accommodations, but we cannot guarantee them because of team balancing. In 10U and older, we cannot honor such requests. AYSO guidelines state that the only players that can be assigned to a specific coach are the coach’s own children. If it is important for your child to be on the same team as another child, you may choose to coach or become an assistant coach for the team your child desires to be a part of. Please email the coach administrator for details. However, siblings who play in the same age group will usually be placed on the same team (exceptions may apply).

My child really wants to play, but I'm not sure we can afford it.

For families on limited finances, we do offer a small number of scholarships. Please email the registrar for details.

Anything else?
