AYSO Region 58

Fall 2022 (Core Program)

Region 58 Core Program

Registration for the Fall Program is now open.

This program is intended to begin on September 10, 2022 (subject to change) for all divisions. All divisions except 16U are expected to end on December 3, 2022 (although some competitive division teams may move on to Area and Section play post-season). 16U teams are expected to finish their season on in October 29, 2022, 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.

In accordance with AYSO National policy children are grouped into divisions based solely on their birth year.  This is consistent with practices of US Soccer.

4U - birth year 2019 -> The "Playground" program is a
 child development program. The objective of this program is to help develop, in collaboration with the parent or guardian, the child’s fundamental motor skills using soccer as a common thread.  Children experience age appropriate development that requires no practice or prior experience. 

5U - birth year 2018 -> The "Jamboree" program is a pressure-free introduction to soccer. Players experience age appropriate development that requires no practice or prior experience. Weekly sessions every Saturday are led by an AYSO Advanced Coach where parents and kids are introduced to games and activities that develop soccer-related skills. When ready, players are divided into 3-player teams for short games that focus on having fun. This clinic-style program introduces the youngest kids (and their parents) to soccer as a stress-free experience.

6U - birth year 2017 ->  Players participate in 6 player teams playing weekly games each Saturday. Teams practice in the first half of the scheduled game time followed by a 25 minute game with another team. Games are generally 4 players versus 4 players on an age appropriate (30yd x 20yd) field. 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.

7U - birth year 2016 ->  This age division introduces weekly practices in addition to Saturday games. Practices are typically one hour on weekday afternoons or early evening. Games are 40 minutes and played 4 players versus 4 players on an age appropriate (45yd x 30yd) field with small nets and no goalkeepers or throw ins. Experience shows that 6 year olds lack the physical development and psychological focus to play the goalkeeper position. Eliminating the keepers results in an open and free-flowing game. 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. (AYSO National groups 7U and 8U into a single division, so those of you looking to volunteer as coaches only need the 8U training -- there is no separate 7U training).

8U - birth year 2015 ->  This division is similar to 7U, but play is on slightly larger fields and 5 players versus 5 players with 7 members to a team.  Players are introduced throw-ins for the first time.  Again, the focus is on fun and we don't keel score or post standings.

10U - birth years 2013 and 2014 -> 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 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.

12U - birth years 2011 and 2012 ->  In this division games are 60 minutes long and played 9 players v 9 players on a field that is 90-100 yards long and 45-50 yards wide. Goals are now full-size. 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.

14U - birth years 2009 and 2010 -> 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.

16U - birth years 2007 and 2008 -> 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.

19U - birth years 2004, 2005 and 2006 -> 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. 

The following is a summary of the key rules by division:
