Registration FAQ

How old does my child have to be to start playing soccer in AYSO Region 42? What is the oldest division?

Our 5U division is our entry point for players, and is meant for children who are or will turn 4 years old between January 1 and December 31 of the current year. Our program culminates with our 19U division, which includes players who will turn either 16, 17 or 18 years of age between January 1 and December 31 of the current year. 

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

Start by creating an account in our online registration system and registering your player(s) for the upcoming fall season. Parent/guardians must provide proof of date of birth (an official document with the date printed on it, such as birth certificate, passport, baptismal certificate, school or medical records, etc.) for each new player registered, which can be uploaded into the online system during registration. If you have issues uploading your document(s), or have questions regarding acceptable documents, please email the Registrar.

How can I volunteer?

AYSO Region 42 in Newbury Park is a completely volunteer-run organization. We depend on all of our families to help fill the hundreds of needed positions that allow our kids to enjoy a fun-filled soccer season each fall. Some of the positions needed include head and assistant coaches, team managers, referees, and board members. Without help from our families with these important positions and individuals volunteering their time, there simply wouldn't be enough support to host a season. Please visit our volunteer page for additional information. 

OK, I've registered. Now what?

After the registration period closes, the AYSO Region 42 board works to recruit coaches and form 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 depending on your age division. If you have not heard from your coach by mid-August, feel free to reach out to your player's division director. Contact information can be found on our Board Members page.

Does my child have to play in the assigned division?

Players are assigned to a division based on their birth year. In order to allow players to remain with their peers, keep teams balanced, and provide a safe and positive experience, requests to play in a younger or older division will not be granted.

Who will be on my team?

For 6U and below, players are assigned to teams randomly. For 7U and up, players will be evaluated for skills before the season starts. AYSO is committed to balancing teams every season to ensure that every child has a safe and positive experience. Note: No evaluations are required for 16U and older players, as there are typically only one or two teams in those divisions and the coaching staff is usually familiar with most of the players.

Can't I play on the same team as my friend? / I want to be on a certain coach's team again!

For 6U 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 7U/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 with limited finances, we do offer a small number of scholarships. Please email the Registrar for details.
