Spring 2021 Play:April-June

Updated 2/25

Spring Activity Plan v2

This weekend (2/27) the AYSO board will be going over some of the finer details, but we are expecting to keep things flexible as we want to easily adopt Oregon Health Authority guidance changes. It is unclear if Benton County will be at Extreme risk in April-June, but we are building a few frameworks for each scenario. Fields are also in flux as we work with the Corvallis School District in the hope of using school green spaces this spring.

MARCH: Mostly team formation and recruiting needed volunteers. Some field setup will take place, to get field spaces ready as we can get helpers to contribute. Some groups could do team meetings starting over spring break. We will also be publishing information about clinic signups and pick soccer scrimmages.

APRIL: The focus will be on fundamentals and player development; many players have had little physical activity, so we will be working to get players back on track and active. April will have some continued team formation and volunteer training to help everyone find his or her stride. Practices: April also has historically poor weather and swampy fields, so practices might be sporadic. Coaches determine practice times and locations. Clinics: Additional player clinics are expected to start in mid-April and will offer players more focused trainings. I expect to have a goalkeeper clinic and goal striker clinic. This will be a new concept with a separate signup, and selectively picked coaches. Pickup Soccer: Pickup group free play would be planned to include assembled groups of players that would organize to play a scrimmage and become familiar with how a future games would be setup with COVID modifications. A player would signup, indicate a buddy, and each set of players would be added to a group of about 20 players for a session at a time and field.

MAY: Scrimmages / Games will be scheduled for almost every weekend, depending on field and volunteer availability; we will schedule for Saturdays and look to have a referee for the older divisions. Team practices and clinics are expected to continue through May.

JUNE: We expect to continue scrimmages / games up to Saturday June 19, if possible we would look to run division tournaments.

[CorvallisAYSO] Spring Season & Registration
Thu 2/25/2021 1:44 PM

Hello All AYSO Families,

If you are interested in Spring Soccer, please finish up your registration online this month (Feb), if you have not already done it. We will start building groups and reaching out to coaches starting next week, registration will still be open, but some divisions might be limited.

Register for Spring 2021: https://corvallisayso.org/login
If you have any special requests like playing up a division or playing with a buddy, please submit the request here: https://corvallisayso.org/form/special-request


NOTICE of Returning Player (FROM FALL 2020) Registration Issues
About 30% of you are being charged again by Sports Connect for the AYSO membership fee again. It is unclear if a fix will be applied quickly, so we are pushing forward with the following... Either Sports Connect will refund your credit card (fingers crossed) or we will apply the payment to the spring program fee of $20 for that player. Unfortunately, this issue can lead to the loss of $2.75 from the Sports Connect service fee. I do not have a solution for that, so please consider it as an added cost at this time. I am regularly checking in with AYSO National for a status update on the fix/solution.

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

What will the spring season cost?
If you played in fall, just the program fee of $20 per player due is in mid-April. New players this school year will have the program fee of $20 due in mid-April + the AYSO membership fee of $22.75 per player due during registration. Uniforms are not expected for this spring (as of writing), but each player will get soccer socks and will be loaned a reversible pinnie for the season.

What will the spring soccer season look like?
Team placements will be mid-March, with practices/activities possibly starting after spring break. The first few weeks of April will still have some player and volunteer movements as we work to get teams situated. Depending on player numbers and field availability, scrimmages/games are expected for each Saturday starting May 1 - June 12. All players would need to be wearing face coverings, unless state guidance changes. The scheduled games will look more like scrimmages as coaches will need to move players to balance out the game and work within some modified rules.

[CorvallisAYSO] Spring Soccer Registration
Mon 2/8/2021 7:05 AM

Hello Families from Fall Soccer,

All who want to participate in spring soccer, need to register online, even if you registered for fall. If you played in fall, the registration should show as a $0 cost as you already payed your yearly membership.

Register for Spring 2021: https://corvallisayso.org/login
You will also need to re-submit any special requests (playing buddy, play up a division, etc.):
https://corvallisayso.org/form/special-request

If you played in fall, just the program fee of $20 per player due is in mid-April.

All players would need to be wearing face coverings, unless state guidance changes. The scheduled games will look more like scrimmages as coaches will need to move players to balance out the game and work within some modified rules.

Why do I need to register specifically for spring?
In the past, you would not need to, but a few key pieces make this year unique. 1. AYSO is moving to a new registration website and a new volunteer training website. 2. We will need to reform teams in most areas and this will ensure we are forming teams based on individuals interested in playing.

Equipment: Coaches & Players, please keep the equipment safe and dry over the winter, you will need it for spring. I would prefer you hold onto the equipment, hopefully you can get some use out of it this winter. If you cannot store it or do not plan to join us in spring, please email me and I can arrange for you to drop off the equipment at the AYSO brown shed at Adams School.

Parent & Coach: Should we return equipment? No, please help us with safely storing the equipment for the winter. If you do not plan to join us in spring, please return the equipment by emailing me to setup a time.
