American Youth Soccer Organization Providing world class youth soccer programs that enrich children's lives.

Fall Soccer


Fall Soccer is our Primary Season.  Registration generally runs from late April or May through the end of July.  The regular season runs from September to November, followed by the Beach Cup for eligible divisions.  If you have any questions about Fall Soccer, please be sure to read this entire page, down to and including the Chart and Notes at the bottom of the page.


Fall Soccer began September 7th!!    

Late Registration is still available for many Divisions, but not all divisions. 

For more details see our Registration Info page.  To find out the status of a specific Division, visit the Age Chart to see what division your child would be in and then visit the Board of Directors page to find the Contact Info for your Division Commissioner.

If you are willing to volunteer, we always need Coaches and Referees!  The only reason we fill up and cannot accept every child who would like to play is because we run out of parents willing to volunteer to coach.  No experience necessary.  We offer extensive training.  Please check out our Volunteer Page to learn more.  

Teams will be formed in mid-August and you should hear from your Head Coach or Division Commissioner (DC) by the end of August.  Teams are formed either by a Draft (7U and above) or by the DC doing their best to group friends/classmates.  All friend requests and coach requests should be entered on the registration form.  You can return to your registration form to update it any time before teams are formed.

Schedules will not be released until the week before the season starts.  
The first game for most divisions will be Sept 7, 2019, but beyond that we do not have any details.  Please do not ask.  We know you have other children and other activities you are trying to plan around.  We do too.  There is a lot of work to do before we can finalize teams and schedules.  There are hundreds of variables, including coaching conflicts for parents generous enough to coach multiple teams.  We will post the schedule as soon as humanly possible, but experience tells us that it wont be until the week before the season starts. 

If your child is on a Wait List.... VOLUNTEER!!  The reason we have wait lists is because we need more parents to volunteer to coach.  Anyone can do it.  You do not need any experience.  Please see our Volunteer Page for details.  While we usually are able to place most kids from the wait list onto a team, it is not guaranteed unless your volunteer to coach.

Please see the Division Chart below for more information about your Division.  Please see the Board of Directors page for the name and email address of your Division Commissioner.

AYSO Region 18 Division Chart Summary
 
Below is a list of some of the key differences between each division within Region 18.  The divisions start with small teams, no score keeping, and no goalies for our youngest players who are just discovering the game.  As the player's abilities and capacity increase, the complexity and expectations increase until our athletes are playing competitive soccer following all of the FIFA Laws of the Game.

A Few Important Notes about this Chart:

  • Listed Team Sizes are Targets and may vary slightly depending upon the number of players and coaches registered for each Division.
  • Team sizes are kept as small as possible to maximize playing time and learning opportunities, while limiting bench time.
  • U5 & U6 Games include both practice time and game time during 1 60-min session held on Saturdays.  Actual players on the field may vary depending on attendance.  But all sessions will be on Saturdays.
  • All Divisions try to hold most of their games on Saturdays, however starting at 7U, the larger fields and large Division sizes often force our scheduler to put some games on Sundays.
  • Starting at U7 there may be 2-3 Doubleheader Weekends per season. 
  • Starting at U14 there may be Double Header Weekends as much as half the season.
  • Practice schedule will depend on Field Availability and Head Coach schedules.

If you have specific questions, feel free to contact the Division Commissioner for your child's division.  All Division Commissioners and their contact information is listed on our Contact Us page.
