We have some exciting news!  Our Fall 2021 registration is now open!  The season is played August through November and is open to any child between the ages of 3 and 18 (Birth Years 2003-2018).  To sign-up, please visit our website at , sign-in to your account and select the "register now" tab.

[NOTE - Late Registrations (after July 30th) are subject to Late Fee]  

The Fall Play program is the main focus of AYSO Soccer, and the fall season runs from September – November. The Fall Play program is competitive; however, it doesn’t lose track of the fact that it’s all about having fun. Each team has a registered volunteer coach who is age appropriately train and certified. This certification is provided to the coach at no cost. Each of these teams participate in a twelve or thirteen game regular season. This requires a lot of certified Referee volunteers. In addition this program is completely organized by a volunteer board. As you can imagine, running the program smoothly requires a lot of team work.

Registration for the fall season takes place in the spring with the first registration date being referred to as the Early Bird registration. All players registering at the Early Bird registration receive a discount . To receive the discount, you must register by the Early Bird deadline.
