When does the soccer season take place?

The soccer season has two parts - Fall and Spring. The Fall 2017 season opens with practices starting the week of September 4, the first games for most divisions on Sept. 16 and runs through October 21. The Spring 2018 Season will start with practices the week of April 9 and Game # 1 will be on April 21.

Most players choose to play both fall and spring.  Players remain on the same team for both seasons.
Some players choose to play fall only or spring only.  There is a reduced fee for choosing that option.

When does registration open?

Registration opens 4/22/17. Early bird fees are good through June 11th. Registration closes July 1st. After July 1st, you can apply for your child to play and he/she will be placed on the waiting list.

Where do practices and games take place?

Our main complex is located at 3066 Port Sheldon, in Hudsonville. We are south of the county courthouse, west of 28th Avenue. 5U and 7U - 12U have games on these fields. 6U uses the soccer fields at Parkwood Presbyterian Church, 7998 28th Avenue, Jenison. They are south of Hager Park and north of Baldwin, on the east side of the road. 14U and 19U play some home games and some away games. Our region also uses fields at various parks and schools in the Jenison and Hudsonville area for practices.

** We are not opening up Spring only registration at this time. We will do so after fall season has started.

*** Boys U14 – please email the registrar to get on a list so that we can determine if we will have enough boys to field a fall Boys U14 team!!!!

Can I get a refund if my child decides not to play soccer?

If for some reason you need to withdraw, our region has the following refund policy:

The national fees are non-refundable. The balance can be refunded until 7/1/17 - when the teams are put together. After that date we will refund all but $20 to cover the cost of the jersey/socks that were ordered.

Refund requests must be in writing and submitted to the registrar, either by email or mailed to : AYSO 676, PO Box 27, Jenison, MI 49429.

Who runs my AYSO Region?

AYSO is a volunteer organization. Administrators, coaches, referees, and other volunteers all donate their time and effort to make AYSO a great program for our soccer-playing kids.  E-mail is the best way to reach us. Please see our contacts link.

About our Registration Process

This year AYSO is introducing a whole new registration system - Dick's Team Sports HQ, Powered by Blue Sombrero.
This is replacing Eayso.  
All families will need to register - creating a new log in and password.  Your whole family will register in one convenient location.  You will be able to volunteer and access training all through the same login. Your training as a coach will all be transferred from Eayso. 
The new system only accepts credit cards, debit cards, and prepaid credit cards.  Checks/cash will no longer be accepted.

What documents do I need to send in with my registration?

There are two documents that you need to send in after you apply online if you are new to our Region:

A copy of proof of your child’s birth date (passport or birth certificate) and

Concussion Awareness Form – please print your child's player application and concussion form from your child's Blue Sombrero account. This form needs to be signed by both parent and player.

These documents need be mailed in to: AYSO 676, PO Box 27, Jenison, MI 49429 or scanned and emailed to : registrar@ayso676.com before the season begins.

How do I know that my registration is complete?

You will receive an email after you pay confirming your payment.

When is registration closed?

Registration will close July 1st. After that date all applying players will be placed on a wait list.

How does the wait list work?

We will form teams with the players who have registered before the deadline. If we have spots on those teams or if we have enough coaches to add additional teams, we will contact players on the wait list and give your child the option of joining a team.

In what division will my child play?

AYSO has changed from a school year registration to a birth year registration in order to align with other  American youth soccer program providers interpretation of the U.S. Soccer Player Development Initiatives.

The effective date of age determination for registration shall be the player's age as of December 31 looking ahead of the Membership Year.  Example: For MY2017 the division the child will be placed in  will be determined based on their age on December 31, 2018. 

Participants who shall turn four years of age between January 1 and December 31 are eligible for AYSO Playground Soccer.

To help in determining the proper age and division for players, the following chart is provided and guidelines and rules are as follows from U.S. Soccer.

Can I select specific practice days when I register?

No, unless you are the coach. Coaches choose their team’s practice night. This is one of the advantages to coaching your child’s team!!

If your child is unable to practice the night his/her team practices on, there will be a fee of $35 to switch teams and get a new jersey/socks.

Can I select a specific coach when I register?

No. We will not honor any requests for a specific coach. Coaches cannot request specific players.

Can I request that my child play with a specific child?

We will not honor player requests. If you coach with another parent then your children will be placed on the same team with both of the parents as the coaches.
