We created this page for parents of AYSO Region 213 players to answer commonly asked questions, to help you better understand AYSO soccer and to guide you through all that AYSO Region 213 has to offer your child or children. We hope you find this section of our new website to be a valuable resource regarding AYSO and soccer in Irvine.
We placed links to useful information on the left sidebar. If, however, you have additional questions not answered here, then we are sure others have the same questions and would like to see the answers available on this page. Therefore, your feedback and suggestions about ways we can improve the website are always welcome by emailing us at: Management@AYSOsoccer.org.

Generally speaking, older players have later practice times than do younger players. Practice times are allocated by Division Commissioners to their coaches. Usually, more than one team will be practicing on a field at the same time, so coaches and parents are expected to cooperate in sharing the field.
The city of Irvine is protective of their field conditions. This may require closure of the fields due to weather. The city of Irvine maintains several ways you can get updates on field conditions and closures including: telephone MUDD line, Twitter and an interactive website. Please visit their website by CLICKING HERE to select the best way for you to get updates.
Note: The referee is responsible for the safety of the players. Thus, the referee can decide a game cannot be played even if the city of Irvine did not close the field.
We strongly recommend the coach or team manager setup a calling tree, use Twitter, text broadcasting or other real-time communications method to send out alerts to parents of players (or players).
Our policy is to use email for all communications. Everyone operating AYSO Region 213 is a volunteer with professional and personal commitments in addition to the demands AYSO places on us. Email allows us to deal with issues when it is convenient. Also, with over 2,000 players, email is the most realistic and efficient way for us to communicate with everyone.
Due to the high volume of email we send out and our use of Constant Contact to send out periodic email newsletters to everyone, many common email programs and Internet security software consider emails from the AYSOsoccer.org domain to be spam. Please take a moment to setup your Internet security program and email accounts to allow email to be delivered to your Inbox instead of to your Junk or Spam folders.
The success of our program relies on volunteer parents chipping in a little bit of time and effort. Together, we create a soccer experience that is as rewarding to us as it is fun for the kids.
We need coaches and referees, but we also need website upkeep, newsletter writer, people to stick corner flags in the ground at your local field on Saturday mornings, equipment manager for coaching, program organizers, and much more. Join in, and you'll see how rewarding it is to be involved in the program that your kids are enjoying.
