How long is the Fall soccer season and when are the games?

Region 41 typically plays its first soccer games on the first Saturday after Labor Day.  Games are generally played on Saturdays only, with the exception of U14, U16 & U19, which may play on Saturdays and Sundays. Players in U5 through U8 conclude in by Thanksgiving.  The older teams go into the play-offs and could continue playing into early December.

Where are the games played?

AYSO is the largest recreational soccer league in our area - boasting some 20,000 players in the Saddleback Valley.  We partner with 9 other regions: San Juan Capistrano, Aliso Viejo, Laguna Hills, Mission Viejo, Ladera Ranch, Laguna Beach, Rancho Santa Margarita, Lake Forest, and San Clemente.  Our older teams may play against these sister cities.  Some games are home and some are away.  The younger teams in the U6 and possibly the U8 divisions often play against a bordering city.  The U5 Jamboree games are always held at the same Laguna Niguel field.
