Registration Info


Registration is NOW OPEN for Spring 2019

Age Calculation 
A Player's Division for AYSO is determined by their Year of Birth.  Please see the Age Calculator for details.  Players participate in the same Division in the Spring that they we in during the previous Fall. 

Fees Returning Players who participated in Fall 2018 will pay a Fee of $75, while New Players will pay a fee of $145 to play.  Even if you have played AYSO in the past, you are considered a New Player for this Membership Year if you did not play during the Fall 2018 season.

     Returning Players - $75
     New Players - $145

AYSO National Player Fee – of the above fees - $17.50 is charged in a separate transaction and is a non-refundable annual player fee that goes directly to AYSO National.  So New Players will be charged $127.50 by Region 18 and $17.50 by AYSO National.  Returning Players have already paid the National Player Fee for this Membership Year, so there is only the single charge by Region 18 for $75.

Refund Policy Full refunds will be issued if requested by the end of Regular Registration, less $25 in non-refundable fees ($17.50 AYSO National Player Fee + $7.50 Processing Fee).  If a refund is requested during Late Registration but before the start of the Season, fifty percent (50%) of the total registration fee paid will be refunded.  No refunds will be issued after the start of the Season.  Please contact the registrar to request a refund ([email protected]).

Multi-player Discount – Player fee is $50 for the 3rd or more players per family but payment for all players must be paid in "one" (1) payment transaction for the system to process the discount. 

Team Formation – For the Fall Season, teams will be formed mid- to late-August.  For the Spring Season, teams will be formed mid-February.  Once teams have been formed, you will be contacted by your player's coach with additional information.

Parent Meeting – A Parents Meeting will be held in late August or early September before the Fall Season starts to provide additional information about our program and review our objectives and expectations for the upcoming season.


Parents, we really need your help to make this program successful.  AYSO is an ALL-VOLUNTEER Organization.  The only way we can provide a top quality soccer league at such low prices, accessible to everyone, is thanks to the incredible dedication of hundreds of volunteers.  We need your time to help manage and support the teams, games, fields, and logistics for each division.

And for the record, Volunteering is FUN!!

While all Volunteer positions are important, we are in particular need of COACHES and REFEREES.

We have a Volunteer Page on the site with more details on the volunteer aspect of AYSO18.

Please feel free to email any of our Board Members to ask more details (contact information available on Contact Us page).

Can I Request a Specific Coach or Teammates?

AYSO mandates Balanced Teams. It is better for player development and honestly a lot more fun for everyone.  For these reasons, for Divisions U8 and above, the teams are formed through a draft process. For the younger Divisions, U5 and U6, the Division Commissioners try to build teams that accommodate Friend Requests and Coach Requests. DCs will also consider each player’s school when forming teams, so that your player is likely to be placed on a team with schoolmates.

Volunteering yourself as a Coach will give you some consideration in any team formation.  AYSO and USA Soccer encourage small-sided teams with small team rosters, to increase each player's opportunities to be active, enjoy the sport, and develop their skills.  For these reasons we need a lot of volunteer coaches to meet the demand.  Please consider volunteering as a coach.  You do not need any prior knowledge or experience (we will train you) and it is incredibly rewarding.

What if there are any issues with my registration?

The Region 18 Registrar will contact you by e-mail to resolve any problems or issues.  You can always Login to your account at to confirm your registration.

What’s next?

Teams will be formed in mid to late August. You will hear from your player’s coach by late August.
