Training Session Location Reservations

First off, get it done now, or you will be stuck with what you can get.

  1. Pick a school or location that is best for you. (parks cannot easily be reserved, so there can be greater risk)
  2. Check to see if that school would be best for the addresses of the players on the team, or you can ask them. (you won’t appease everyone, but you can make it central enough for a good chance of attendance.)
  3. Determine some days and times that work for you.
  4. Check with the team to narrow down the training session day(s) and time(s).
  5. See the guide below for reservations:
    • All Corvallis school locations except Adams (509j Reservation here) (PDF guide)
    • Adams Location:
      • Email (here) with the following information:
        Phone number
        Email address
        Division (ie 10U)
        Time of training session (ie 5:00-6:00)
        Day of the week (ie Mon and Wed)
    • Philomath is first come, first serve.
  6. Ensure you get a confirmation on a reservation, or an agreement ahead of time. (AYSO provides insurance for all AYSO events, and the district already has those papers on file.)

Most of the time you can enter the online district form and they will notify you with the field confirmation in a week. In other cases you will have luck of the draw in public spaces. AYSO has insurance for all parties involved in most locations, but we recommend that you work with school district to find a location.
