[CorvallisAYSO] Head Coach & Referee Volunteer Registration
Sat 7/24/2021 6:45 AM

Hello All AYSO Fall Core Rec Families,

If you plan to help as a head coach or referee. Please go and register as a volunteer online. No one in our AYSO region is paid, we are powered by volunteers like you, we need you. With about 700 players so far, we need more head coaches and referees. After teams are formed, we will be asking Asst. Coaches & Team Managers to register.


All Head Coaches & 9U+ Referees...
Please register online. Volunteers should have their own Sports Connect account; this is necessary, as the training system requires a unique login and ties one login with one volunteer. Ideally you have an account with your kids or you created an account based off an invite from your main family account (https://corvallisayso.org/account > bottom of the page "Add Additional Account Holder" button) with your kids. However, sometimes is not an easy task, so please create a new account. Get started, https://corvallisayso.org/login and login to the region's Sports Connect. If you do not have an account, you can create one from the "Register Here!" link on the login page.

Volunteer Registration Guide: https://corvallisayso.org/docs/RegVolunteer.pdf

YOUTH: Youth (12+) do the same process as adults, but select volunteer positions like Youth Referee & Youth Coach Helper.
NOTICE: In Sports Connect we can only allocate you to one role per team, please still register under each role so you get the emails.
IMPORTANT: Be sure you select ALL the roles in ALL the divisions you want. If you are not targeting a specific division (freelance referees, board members, & youth), please register in the "00UX Volunteer" division.
NOTES: Background Checks do not require a middle name, you can leave that blank. Do not start trainings yet, AYSO national is still working on system updates, just the volunteer registration and background check right now.

[CorvallisAYSO] Programs: Core Rec, EXTRA, Adult, & Camps

Hello All AYSO Families,

Below is a summary of emails about our Core Program, EXTRA Program, Summer Camps, & Adult Program.

Programs Summary

You can register core players online (here) for fall 2021 soccer. The fall fee also signs you up for spring, you only pay for core once per school year. In other words, signing up for the fall 2021 season also signs you up for the spring 2022 season. If you only signup for spring, you pay the same as you would in fall. The core player registration guide is (here).

Development Core for Players Born 2017 & 2016 (Signup Here)
The development program is for children who need additional help to get started. You can choose for Saturday morning or an available evening activity day, in August you will choose what day in the week best suits you.

EXTRA Competitive Play

Greetings 11U+ AYSO Families,

I hope you have enjoyed the week off, but it is already time to start thinking about the fall. This fall, region 149 is excited to announce the return of the EXTRA soccer program. AYSO's EXTRA program is for players who would like to play (you guessed it) extra soccer and at a more advanced level. The EXTRA program is a commitment in addition to the regular CORE program which all players participate in. This is a great opportunity for players to further develop skills and play in more competitive games.

NOTE: Players going into 4th - 8th aka 11U - 15U are eligible to signup here.

If EXTRA sounds like something you child is interested in, we encourage you to keep reading. Success in an EXTRA program requires a more serious commitment by both the players and the families of players. EXTRA games tend to be on Saturday (and sometimes Sunday) afternoons after CORE games are completed. Additionally, our EXTRA teams play in a league independently organized from AYSO and EXTRA teams will sometimes be traveling to their games, which can take place in Albany, Lebanon, Salem, Silverton, Springfield, Stayton, and Keizer. If your child is involved with EXTRA, this can mean your entire Saturday is spent in Soccer mode. It is a lot of fun, but can be tiring.

In addition to games, players in the EXTRA program usually have additional practices. Players will have to practice with both their CORE team and their EXTRA team. Inevitably there will be some scheduling conflicts, and families will have to work with both EXTRA and CORE coaches so players can attend as much practice as possible. Participation in the EXTRA program requires participation in the CORE program as well. EXTRA practices also tend to be more intense and players will be challenged to a much high degree. Only players who are serious about participating in more intense and longer practices should consider joining the EXTRA program.

Much like our CORE program, EXTRA is entirely run by volunteers, this includes the coaching staff and team managers. The number of positions that can be offered to players is often limited by the number of teams which have coaches and the league allowed roster size. In years past we have had instances where there were too many players and too few roster spots available. In these instances, coaches will often have to make decisions about which players can join a team. Often times these decisions are based upon players skills, attitude, attention during practices, and commitment to making both practices and games.

We are still working on many of the details, but if you are interested in participating please sign up soon. SIGNUP HERE. Practices will be occurring over the summer and final team formation likely taking place in August. If your child is selected to join an EXTRA team, and you are able to participate, there will be an additional fee of $150 dollars. In some instances, scholarships will be available to help defray costs. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

Adult Pick-Up League: Summer 2021

AYSO Adult Region 149 is excited to announce the start of our Adult Pick-Up League next Wednesday, June 30th. Based on the AYSO’s Six Philosophies, we intend to provide the same safe, fair, fun, and positive environment into our AYSO Adult Soccer League.

Summer format - fluid and evolving, but skill and fitness based:

  • Born before 2003
  • Co-ed, 6v6 and/or 7v7 pick-up games
  • Smaller-sized fields
  • Field sizes will vary with skill and fitness
  • No fixed teams, players divided each week
  • Unlimited substitutions
  • No referees
  • Players overwhelmed by the level of competition, or the level of fitness, may move to another field more appropriate to their needs.
  • As the league grows, we envision adding a women’s-only division, and/or an over 50 division.

Since the number, and size, of the fields will be determined by the level of registrants, we will be asking for your playing level when you register.

Player Divisions:

  • Recreational 1: New to soccer (few skills), limited experience
  • Recreational 2: Basic skills, some competitive experience, played soccer a long time ago
  • Intermediate: Played competitive soccer, good individual skills, low fitness level.
  • Advanced: Played competitive soccer, strong individual skills, great fitness level.

When: Every Wednesday night starting June 30th and ending on August 25th from 6-7:30 PM

Where: The Western View complex next to Adams Elementary (here).

Albany/Lebanon Players we are planning to add a pick up night starting mid-July in Lebanon (more details coming soon). All are welcome to play in both pick-up games in Benton County and Linn County.

Cost: $30 per player + the $2.75 Sports Connect fee. The $30 includes your registration costs for U.S. Soccer, United States Adult Soccer Organization (USASA), and your Player Accident Insurance (PAI - covered up to $25,000).

Register: Signup in Sports Connect (here). You must complete the registration before you can participate.
TIP: This is a new Sports Connect site, unrelated to your local region, you might need to register as a new user. Once you create your account, you signup as a participant and select the main program, we only have one division for everyone this summer.

Host a Coach
We would like to extend this invitation to all families, and allow you the opportunity to be a part of a fantastic cultural experience. Hosting one of our Soccer Coaches allows you and your family to learn all about another culture, whilst also having a live-in specialist to enhance your soccer education. And for the Coach, they get to enjoy and appreciate a real American lifestyle. It is a fantastic cultural exchange program and the differences of our language and backgrounds, combined with the love of soccer, ensure a memorable time with long lasting friendships.


In terms of the current climate, we want to assure you that all of our Coaches have been in the US for a number of months and have had a clean bill of health throughout. For the duration of the COVID-19 situation, they have always followed the strictest of Social Distancing procedures, for both their own safety and also, for the families they have been staying with.

For more information please visit: https://uksoccer.com/host-a-coach/

Thanks,
Luke Cotton - Acting Summer Camp Coordinator

==================================================================

Core Program Frequently Asked Questions

Special Placement Request?
Fill out this form (here); use the categories to select what you are requesting. Types of requests include Team Friend/Buddy (want to be placed with this one other player), Play Up a Division, Not Placed With (volunteer or player), Volunteer Buddy (want to volunteer with this person), Player w/ Family Volunteer (family volunteer has independent account and is not associated to the player), & Medical / Developmental / VIP Placement. We cannot guarantee requests will be honored. Please fill out two forms when needed, for example if you wish to play in a higher division with a friend, please fill out one form for each request.

Cash or Check?
Everything can be paid by Credit Card online in Sports Connect, they charge $2.75 per transaction. In rare circumstances we can accept payment by cash or check, please email the registrar if you need that accommodation (contact).

Registration Event?
We are not holding a registration event for registering. If you are able to access a safe device for registering, you can type in https://www.ayso149.org to get to our registration portal.

Refunds?
Those desiring a refund must submit the request (here). We cannot refund the membership or the Sports Connect fees, of the program fees we look to cover our costs and that can be 3% for the credit card.

COVID-19 & Player Masks?
Currently, we do not expect to require masks for players in Fall while they play in practices or games.

Per Player Scholarship?
You register/apply the same as everyone else, when asked about eligibility for a scholarship during registration, check yes. You should see a question... "My family and this player is approved for free and reduced meals, SNAP, or TANF. My family can provide proof when requested and authorize AYSO to verify my approval/enrollment. If I cannot provide proof when requested, I understand I will be charged the full player registration fee." after checking yes, your fee would be reduced by $50 and you can finish the application online.

The Special Request Form - Types of Requests?
(submit multiple when needed, for example if you wish to play in a higher division with a friend, please fill out one form for each request.)

Playing Up a Division Request:
Sports Connect will only allow you to register in the divisions available to you based on your DOB. You register in that division, and then submit a request to play up a division (here). I review the request, confirm it is a good fit based on the player evaluation, and transfer the player into the new division in Sports Connect (before team formation happens).
Common Reasons to Play Up...
1> The player is outmatched in the division. For some players, they need to play up to improve, without it, they would dominate a division and end up in games where they would need to be restricted / held back to allow others to play/develop.
2> To play up with a friend. This is not recommended if the player is not a top player in the division. With each player having two years in a division, they have one year when they are likely weaker in a division (developmental year), and the next year when they are likely stronger (confidence boosting year). It is good to allow a player to get both of these in a division.

Player Buddy/Friend Request:
Division Coordinators will work on these requests during team formation, but these tend to be the hardest to accommodate. To simplify things, we focus on your most recent buddy request for a player, in other words, one request per player. When considering requests, we look to team balance. Therefore, the directive is to focus on Head Coach & Center Referee requests first, second the other volunteers, and then the remaining requests are prioritized by the date of the request. Family / relative requests are separate and should be submitted separately from this type of request. Volunteers, wishing to volunteer together, please use this request and indicate the other volunteer's player.

Play Down / Medical / Developmental / VIP Placement:
To accommodate all players, we have an option to place players as it is appropriate for them. This request will involve the review of a player's evaluation and could include additional evaluation before final placement. Sports Connect will only allow you to register in the divisions available to you based on your DOB. You register in that division, and then submit a request to play down a division (here). I review the request along with any player evaluation and move the player, if appropriate, or reach out to gather more data & confirm.

Not Placed With (volunteer or player):
This request helps to reduce the likelihood of a known issue between players/families or help parents indicate coaches that are not a good fit for the player. We prioritize these requests.

Related/Family Player or Volunteer:
This request is to help team formation with ensuring we group players in the same family together. It is not always easy to identify family or relatives, so we have this request to help us with getting the family on the same team. You can submit this request along with a player buddy/friend request.

Volunteer w/ Player:
In the player registration form we have you indicate helpers or volunteers that we could expect to help on behalf of that player. You can use the player registration to associate a volunteer with a specific player, if cannot indicate it on the player registration, please submit a volunteer interest form (here), and I will add you to the player's registration.

Frequently Asked Questions

Cash or Check?
Everything can be paid by Credit Card online in Sports Connect, they charge $2.75 per transaction. In rare circumstances we can accept payment by cash or check, please email the registrar if you need that accommodation (contact).

Registration Event?
We are not holding a registration event for registering. If you are able to access a safe device for registering, you can type in https://www.ayso149.org to get to our registration portal.

Refunds?
Those desiring a refund must submit the request (here). We cannot refund the membership or the Sports Connect fees, of the program fees we look to cover our costs and that can be 3% for the credit card.

COVID-19 & Player Masks?
Currently, we do not expect to require masks for players or volunteers in Fall while they play in practices or games.

Per Player Scholarship?
You register/apply the same as everyone else, when asked about eligibility for a scholarship during registration, check yes. You should see a question... "My family and this player is approved for free and reduced meals, SNAP, or TANF. My family can provide proof when requested and authorize AYSO to verify my approval/enrollment. If I cannot provide proof when requested, I understand I will be charged the full player registration fee." after checking yes, your fee would be reduced by $50 and you can finish the application online.


The Special Request Form - Types of Requests?
Fill out the form (here).
(submit multiple when needed, for example if you wish to play in a higher division with a friend, please fill out one form for each request.)

Playing Up a Division Request:
Sports Connect will only allow you to register in the divisions available to you based on your DOB. You register in that division, and then submit a request to play up a division (here). I review the request, confirm it is a good fit based on the player evaluation, and transfer the player into the new division in Sports Connect (before team formation happens).
Common Reasons to Play Up...
1> The player is outmatched in the division. For some players, they need to play up to improve, without it, they would dominate a division and end up in games where they would need to be restricted / held back to allow others to play/develop.
2> To play up with a friend. This is not recommended if the player is not a top player in the division. With each player having two years in a division, they have one year when they are likely weaker in a division (developmental year), and the next year when they are likely stronger (confidence boosting year). It is good to allow a player to get both of these in a division.

Player Buddy/Friend Request:
Division Coordinators will work on these requests during team formation, but these tend to be the hardest to accommodate. To simplify things, we focus on your most recent buddy request for a player, in other words, one request per player. When considering requests, we look to team balance. Therefore, the directive is to focus on Head Coach & Center Referee requests first, second the other volunteers, and then the remaining requests are prioritized by the date of the request. Family / relative requests are separate and should be submitted separately from this type of request. Volunteers, wishing to volunteer together, please use this request and indicate the other volunteer's player.

Play Down / Medical / Developmental / VIP Placement:
To accommodate all players, we have an option to place players as it is appropriate for them. This request will involve the review of a player's evaluation and could include additional evaluation before final placement. Sports Connect will only allow you to register in the divisions available to you based on your DOB. You register in that division, and then submit a request to play down a division (here). I review the request along with any player evaluation and move the player, if appropriate, or reach out to gather more data & confirm.

Not Placed With (volunteer or player):
This request helps to reduce the likelihood of a known issue between players/families or help parents indicate coaches that are not a good fit for the player. We prioritize these requests.

Related/Family Player or Volunteer:
This request is to help team formation with ensuring we group players in the same family together. It is not always easy to identify family or relatives, so we have this request to help us with getting the family on the same team. You can submit this request along with a player buddy/friend request.

Volunteer w/ Player:
In the player registration form we have you indicate helpers or volunteers that we could expect to help on behalf of that player. You can use the player registration to associate a volunteer with a specific player, if cannot indicate it on the player registration, please submit a volunteer interest form (here), and I will add you to the player's registration.

NOTICE: In Late-July, after teams are built, we are unlikely to honor buddy requests, if you are not a head coach or center referee. If the request references a person that is not registered by the time we form teams, we delete the request.


Thank You,
Luke Cotton - Region Commissioner

[CorvallisAYSO] EXTRA Competitive Play - Signup
Wed 06/23/2021 7:25 AM

Greetings 11U+ AYSO Families,

I hope you have enjoyed the week off, but it is already time to start thinking about the fall. This fall, region 149 is excited to announce the return of the EXTRA soccer program. AYSO's EXTRA program is for players who would like to play (you guessed it) extra soccer and at a more advanced level. The EXTRA program is a commitment in addition to the regular CORE program which all players participate in. This is a great opportunity for players to further develop skills and play in more competitive games.

NOTE: Players going into 4th - 8th aka 11U - 15U are eligible to signup here.

If EXTRA sounds like something you child is interested in, we encourage you to keep reading. Success in an EXTRA program requires a more serious commitment by both the players and the families of players. EXTRA games tend to be on Saturday (and sometimes Sunday) afternoons after CORE games are completed. Additionally, our EXTRA teams play in a league independently organized from AYSO and EXTRA teams will sometimes be traveling to their games, which can take place in Albany, Lebanon, Salem, Silverton, Springfield, Stayton, and Keizer. If your child is involved with EXTRA, this can mean your entire Saturday is spent in Soccer mode. It is a lot of fun, but can be tiring.

In addition to games, players in the EXTRA program usually have additional practices. Players will have to practice with both their CORE team and their EXTRA team. Inevitably there will be some scheduling conflicts, and families will have to work with both EXTRA and CORE coaches so players can attend as much practice as possible. Participation in the EXTRA program requires participation in the CORE program as well. EXTRA practices also tend to be more intense and players will be challenged to a much high degree. Only players who are serious about participating in more intense and longer practices should consider joining the EXTRA program.

Much like our CORE program, EXTRA is entirely run by volunteers, this includes the coaching staff and team managers. The number of positions that can be offered to players is often limited by the number of teams which have coaches and the league allowed roster size. In years past we have had instances where there were too many players and too few roster spots available. In these instances, coaches will often have to make decisions about which players can join a team. Often times these decisions are based upon players skills, attitude, attention during practices, and commitment to making both practices and games.

We are still working on many of the details, but if you are interested in participating please sign up soon. SIGNUP HERE. Practices will be occurring over the summer and final team formation likely taking place in August. If your child is selected to join an EXTRA team, and you are able to participate, there will be an additional fee of $150 dollars. In some instances, scholarships will be available to help defray costs. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

[CorvallisAYSO] Fields Help & Needed Materials
Sun 6/6/2021 6:00 AM

Hello AYSO Families,

I could use some help with a handful of odd field needs, if you can help, have ideas or contacts, please reply to this email. Feel free to forward this, I can use all the help I can get on these items.
Side Notes: Player Registration is open (here), Adult Soccer interest (here), & Division Coordinators needed (here).

HELP NEEDED

Saturday 6/12 Goal Moving: If you are the last team on fields 151, 132, 131, 113, 91, & 92, I could use your help moving the soccer goals on to the old track or to the nearest chain link fence, and removing the soccer nets. If you are on field 71, we would be storing the metal goals in the shed for the summer.

Summer Watering: If you live in the Adams school area, have a car with a tow hookup, and can wheel 200 pounds 30ft, have I got a job for you! In June-August the watering is one night per week and focused on fields 111, 112, & 93. In late-August the watering is every other night with a lot of shuffling.

Brown Shed Decking: If you are able to help at any time this summer and have experience with installing decking, I could use your help. Take a look at the brown shed on Saturday and see if you can help with replacing the boards that are at the entry of the shed.

Concessions Shed Siding Repair: If you are able to help any time this summer and have experience with siding, I could use your help. The back of the concessions shed has not weathered well, and could use some help/repairs from particle board getting wet.

Brown Shed & Referee Shed Painting: If you are able to help any time this summer and have experience prepping & painting , I could use your help. Both of these sheds could use some touch-up in weathered/damaged areas, either with a repaint of just spot fixes.


MATERIALS NEEDED

Grass Seed: In fall we often overseed & fertilize, if you have contacts that can donate or provide a reduced price for grass seed that is good for sports fields, please reply.

Soccer Goals / Metal Fabrication: As the Corvallis school district is working on schools, we (AYSO) will be helping with acquiring and potentially installing soccer goals, the district has requested fixed metal goals |---------| . These are expected to be like what most schools have now, sleeved or sunk metal post with welded top bar as they are the safest and easiest to maintain. The specifics could vary (square vs round, 2" or 4", likely steel), but we would be supplying 6 goals that are 6.5’x18.5’ at Garfield, Lincoln, & Husky. If you know of a local group/company/person that could help, please reply.


Thank You,
Luke Cotton - Acting Fields Coordinator

[AYSOAdult] Summer Adult Soccer Program
Fri 6/4/2021 9:30 AM

Hello Adults (born before 2003),

It's your turn to PLAY Soccer! We plan to offer an AYSO Adult Coed program this summer but would like some feedback from you first!

Indicate your interest and signup (here).

We will most likely start the program as a Pickup/Open Play League with one activity per week outside. If we have enough interest, we could potentially have two leagues: one for beginner/recreational and one for intermediate/competitive players.

The cost would be $30 per player + the $2.75 Sports Connect fee. The $30 includes your registration costs for U.S. Soccer, United States Adult Soccer Organization (USASA), and your player accident insurance (PAI), which will cover you, in case of an accident, for up to $25,000. We will notify you when and how to register after we confirm numbers and set a schedule.

Learn more about the concept and proposed summer program (here).

Thank You,
Nicole Chapman - Adult Soccer Program Coord.
