Core Fall Programs

Core Fall Information ....

Currently, our region runs a fall soccer season which begins in early August for teams that practice during the week.  Games take place on Saturdays beginning the first Saturday after Labor Day (early September).  All divisions except 16U and 19U will end the regular season on the weekend before Thanksgiving (although some competitive division teams may move on to Area and Section play post-season in December and/or January). 16U and 19U teams will play on Saturdays and possibly on Sundays and finish in October before the start of the high school season. 

AYSO is a national soccer organization that is child first and child focused.

We deliver quality youth soccer programs which promote a fun family environment founded on AYSO's Six Philosophies...

1. Everyone Plays
2. Balanced Teams
3. Open Registration
4. Positive Coaching
5. Good Sportsmanship
6. Player Development

Every girl and boy stepping on the field has fun developing soccer skills while enjoying the world's most popular sport.

We focus on positive messages and each child plays more than half of each game (usually 3/4 or more). 

At early ages the program focuses on a non-competitive fun experience building the foundation for player growth throughout their AYSO experience into their late teens.

The head coach determines the practice schedule and the Regional Scheduler will schedule all the games.  Practice are Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday from 5-6pm, 6-7:30pm or 7:30-9pm with the younger divisions practicing earlier in the evening.  If you would like to be head coach please reach out to your division director.  

Children are grouped into divisions based on their age in the calendar year.  For instance, a child who turns 4 during this calendar year would be in the 5U division (children under 5) for the Fall season. The details for each division are as follows:

Playground - 3 year olds -> The "Jamboree" program is a pressure-free introduction to soccer. Players experience age appropriate development that requires no practice or prior experience. Weekly sessions lasting one hour a night are led by a master coach.  Parents and kids are introduced to games and activities that develop soccer-related skills. This clinic-style program introduces the youngest kids (and their parents) to soccer as a stress-free experience.

6U - 4 year olds and 6U - 5 year olds ->  Players participate in one-two evening practices during the week and will be playing weekly games each Saturday. There are no goalkeepers or throw ins. This maximizes playing time for each child and allows coaches to balance the team. Games at this age are for fun! We don't keep score or post standings.  Note:  Depending of volunteers, the 5U division may be moved to a Jamboree format if team volunteers levels are not met.

8U - 6 and 7 year olds ->  This age division introduces weekly practices in addition to Saturday games. Practices are typically one to two evenings. Games are 40 minutes and played 7 players versus 7 players on an age appropriate field with small nets with goalkeepers and throw ins. The smaller sized teams allow players to fully participate in the game. Play is still focused on fun. We don't keep score or post standings. 

10U - 8 and 9 year olds -> In this division we introduce goalkeeping and competitive play. Weekly games are 50 minutes long and played 7 players versus 7 players on a 75yd x 40yd yard field with 9 or 10 players per team. This division introduces score keeping and the posting of standings.  Playoffs are held in November to determine the division champion and teams may advance to play against teams from other AYSO Regions within our Area.  Teams in 10U normally have two mid-week practices scheduled lasting 60-90 minutes each.  Ideally, players will attend both practices but if there is a conflict, attending one is better than none.

12U - 10 and 11 year olds ->  In this division games are 60 minutes long and played 9 players versus 9 players on a field that is 90-100 yards long and 45-50 yards wide. Players are introduced to positional play that approximates full team soccer. The 9-player teams allow greater space on the field and more involvement by each player.  Again, this division holds two practices each week lasting 60-90 minutes each.

14U - 12 and 13 year olds -> In this division we introduce full-size fields with 11 players versus 11 players competition. Games are 70 minutes long. We continue to ensure that all players participate at least 3/4 of the game.  Again, this division holds two practices each week lasting 60-90 minutes each.

16U - 14 and 15 year olds -> In older teen divisions the season is shortened to about 6 weeks in order to allow players to participate on their high-school teams. Games are played on both Saturday and Sunday and are often scheduled at other parks in our Area, rather than in our region.  Again, this division holds two practices each week lasting 60-90 minutes each.

19U - 16, 17, and 18 year olds -> If we have enough players we will form 19U teams. Similar to 16U, 19U teams play shortened seasons and are often playing in other parks.
