Spring Program

Register Now (Direct Link:

We have some exciting news!  Our Spring 2024 registration is now open!  The season is played February through May and is open to any child between the ages of 2 and 18 (Birth Years 2005-2021).  To sign-up, please visit our website at, sign-in to your account and select the "register now" tab.

Regular Spring Registration Fee is $200 (+$20 AYSO Membership Fee). 
[NOTE - Late Registrations (after January 7th) are subject to Late Fee]

Each team has a registered volunteer coach who is age appropriately train and certified. This certification is provided to the coach at no cost.  All the games scheduled 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 teamwork.

Registration for the Spring season takes place in the Fall 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.

Our Spring Soccer program is for players, coaches and referees who participated in the Fall program. Spring Soccer is an opportunity for players to improve their skills in a more competitive environment. Unlike the fall season, a limited number of teams will be formed in each age division. Coaches in each age group will ‘select’ a portion of their players to form their team.

Unfortunately, not all players desiring to play will be chosen.

Spring Requirements:

  • ALL players must register online for the Spring Season prior to the designated Spring Registration Deadline.
  • Spring team priority placement is given to those players with an active Coach, Referee or Board Member parent volunteer.
  • Current fall players will be placed before non-fall players.
  • Only those players who have registered online, will be eligible to be included in the Spring Team formation process.
  • Coaches will be given a listing of registered players to select and form their team from.
  • Players are expected to have a high level of commitment to their teams and need to attend all practices and games.
  • Parents are expected to fulfill a Spring Season Volunteer Role. (Volunteering during the Fall Season does not exempt or fulfill ones Spring volunteer requirement. Each season is independent of the other; with each season requiring volunteers.)

Equipment needed by age division:

  • 3U-8U (2016-2021): Uniform provided by the region. Parents need to provide: Shin Guards, Size 3 Soccer ball

·       The waitlist is usually turned on after the regular registration deadline, unless there are still players still needed to make a full team, or if the maximum number (cut off number) has been reached prior to the last day of registration.
·       We utilize the waitlist as a "pause button" to determine if we can make more teams or to "fill in" for dropped players. 
·       Moving off of the waitlist may take a few weeks and some patience, but you will be contacted via email if your player has been "activated".
·       You have 24 hours to pay to get your child on the team at that point. 
·       No players that register are guaranteed to play, as this is ALWAYS based on the amount of VOLUNTEER coaches we have available. 
·       Players that registered on time may be added back onto the waitlist if we do not have enough volunteer coaches.  
·       A player can jump off of the waitlist if a parent of a waitlisted player volunteers to be a  HEAD coach for the division where coaches are still needed. 
·       Players are put back on the waitlist in a backwards chronological order to instill fairness for our process, if we run out of volunteer coaches.
·       As a thank you to long term volunteers, a coach that has head coached two times in the last two years (Fall and Spring seasons only); a referee that has refereed 5 games two different seasons in the last two years; or a board member for an entire year will receive priority off of the waitlist.

Although we cannot guarantee that all players move off of the waitlist, we do our best to get every child playing. 
Our regional commissioner is in contact with the surrounding regions and we work together to get players on the field,
whether that is sending players to a neighboring region, or welcoming players from a neighboring region when there is space.

Please be patient as we work through the process!
