Practices and Games

How do I know what team my child is on?

Your child’s coach will contact you once he/she receives the team roster. This should be 3-4 weeks prior to the start of the season.

When will my child have practice?

U5 will meet on Tuesday evenings and U6 will meet on Saturdays. U7, U8, U9, U10, U12, U14 and U 16/19 will have 1 weekday practice on a night chosen by the coach. Again, this is one of the advantages of being your child’s coach! U9, U10, U12, U14 and U16/19 will have the option of having a second practice each week.

How many coaches are assigned per team?

At least one coach is assigned per team, preferably two. It all depends on the number of volunteers who have registered. If your child’s team has only one coach, please consider volunteering to be the assistant coach. Everyone needs a back up.

What am I expected to do as an AYSO Parent?

    • Always Be Positive - You are not on the team, but you have strong influence on the team's environment. Applaud good plays by your child's team and by the opposing team. Support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from youth sporting activities.
    • Be Enthusiastic and Supportive - Let children set their own goals and play the game for themselves. Don't put too heavy a burden on your child to win games. Support your child by giving encouragement and showing an interest in his or her team. Help your child learn soccer skills and good sportsmanship. Teach your child that hard work and an honest effort are often more important than victory.
    • Be Responsible - Take your child to practices and games on time and with the proper equipment.
    • Reinforce Positive Behavior - The best way to help a child to achieve goals and reduce the natural fear of failure is through positive reinforcement. No one likes to make a mistake. If your child does make one, remember that he or she is still learning. Encourage your child's efforts and point out the good things your child accomplished.
    • Let Coaches Coach and Referees Ref - Coaches and referees are usually parents or youth volunteers. They volunteer their time to help make your child's soccer experience a positive one. They need your support, too. What coaches and referees don't need is your help in coaching from the sidelines. So please refrain from coaching during games and practices. Referees are important for fun, fair and safe games. Treat them and their calls fairly and respectfully.
    • Volunteer - While your participation is not required for your child to play, we ask that you volunteer as a coach, referee, team parent, field maintenance, concession help or a regional volunteer who helps with administrative tasks. AYSO has a comprehensive training program to certify you for the position you choose.

What is Kids Zone?

In AYSO, fans are asked to be cheerleaders, not critics. Kids Zone® is a unique program that includes a parent pledge that moms and dads sign to commit to positive, encouraging behavior when they’re watching the games. Please click on the link on the right of our home page.

Equipment And Clothing

How do I order my child’s uniform?

We will order the size jersey you indicate on your child’s registration form. Please be sure to check whether the size selected is correct or whether it needs to be updated.

If you wish to change your child’s jersey after they have been ordered, there will be a $20 fee.
