Spring Primary Program Registration

Registration 

Registration for the MY2014 Spring Season is now open. There are three ways you can register: (1) Online, (2) By mail, (3) At a parent registration / orientation event.

Please follow the three steps below for registration. If you need help, please email our registrar (registrar@aysosoccer.org).

Important: There are no restrictions as to which AYSO region you register with. However, when you follow these steps you are registering for AYSO Region 213 which serves the North Irvine community (generally thought of as north of Irvine Center Drive). If you plan to play in another region, it is best to go to that region's website and follow directions from there. Transferring from one region to another is a manual process, and typically means getting a refund from one region and re-registering in another. It can take some time to complete so we encourage you to be sure you are registering in the region that works best for you, and to avoid delays with the transfer process.  

Step 1: Complete the Volunteer Survey

AYSO is 100% run by volunteers. Over 200,000 volunteers donate time nationally to make AYSO successful. We need parents like you to help out in our region which is why registration includes a Volunteer Survey to be completed. Your child will not be registered without this survey being completedThe survey takes a couple of minutes complete and the expectation is that you sign up for something. Click on the link below to complete the survey.


Step 2: Apply in eAYSO for your child(ren) to play

  1. Login to eAYSO at www.eayso.org. If this is your first time, the first screen will help you to create your account. If you have any problems, call the AYSO helpdesk (866-588-2976) for support. 
  2. From eAYSO's home screen, choose Application for a new/returning player. If they played in eAYSO before, they are a returning player.

I've Registered, now what?

Here's what to expect...

Volunteering

You may hear from an AYSO representative regarding volunteering for the region. AYSO is a 100% volunteer organization. It's run by people who put in 100's of hours the benefit of the community. Volunteering can take many forms and you don't need to know anything about soccer to help out. This link will tell you more about the volunteer roles.  

Team

One to two weeks before the beginning for the season you'll hear from a coach or team parent. He/she will advise about a team meeting, handing out uniforms, practices, and answer questions you may have.

Equipment

AYSO provides uniforms - a jersey, shorts, and socks. However, parents need to purchase soccer shoes or soccer cleats (not baseball cleats), shin guards, and a ball. Players will not be allowed to play with out shin guards and suitable soccer shoes. You can buy these from most sports retailers such as Sports Authority or Dick's Sporting Goods. The ball size you should pick is based on age: 

- Size 3 U5, U6, U7, U8

- Size 4 U10, U12

- Size 5 U14, U16, U19



Wait List Process

Players whose applications are mailed in late are placed on a wait list. As teams are formed, there are usually several teams that will still have room for more players. We use waitlist applicants to fill up these spots. Once teams are filled, spots open up only if players drop out, cancel, move, etc. Players are taken off the wait list and assigned to teams based on:

  1. How much room is available in the division.
  2. When the application was mailed to us (we use the US Postal Service postmark date to establish order).
  3. If the division needs a coach, then a player who comes with a parent willing to coach is automatically taken off the wait list.
We maintain the waitlist through the third week of the season.


Fees

  • There is a discount for a third player if registered at the same time (Irvine Residents Only). (See registrar for details.)
  • The fee includes the uniform - jersey, shorts, and socks.
  • The fee does not include shoes, soccer ball, or shin guards.
  • We accept credit card (via eAYSO), check, and cash.
