We are working to adjust to the current public health issues around COVID-19 in Oregon. Our primary objective is to keep everyone - players, volunteers, spectators - healthy and safe. We want to offer a program that gives kids an opportunity to be kids, to play soccer, but to do so in a way that is consistent with regional and national public health directives.

AT THIS TIME, until we have better guidance from state and national health authorities, we are postponing the beginning of practices until further notice. Our hope is that when schools reopen, we can begin our practices, and a modified season will follow. As things continue to develop, we will keep you informed by email. The region calendar (here) will continue to include a proposed set of adjusted dates, for example, as of today, practices could start 4/28 and the first of seven consecutive Saturday game days would start 5/2.

Updated: 3/21 @ 3pm | See Season Updates (here)

Training Session (Practice) Guidance

The head coach makes the call on the practice location and time. Ideally the head coach works with the majority and the assistant coach to find the best time & place.

Training Session Duration

Below represents the max of an active training session per week. Each coach should ensure they offer at least one practice per week, again, ideally at a time & location that works for the majority.

  • 13U+ divisions - 2 training sessions per week for 1½ hours
  • 11U divisions - 2 training sessions per week for 1 hour
  • 09U divisions - 2 training sessions per week for 1 hour
  • 07U divisions - 1 training sessions per week for 1 hour
  • 06U divisions - 1 training sessions per week during the first 30min on game day.
  • 05U division - training sessions/game one time a week

Many coaches schedule training sessions for 1½ hours per day to include the time for breaks and late arrivals.

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 parks location that is best for you. (parks & Philomath schools are first come first serve, so they can be riskier.)
    NOTICE: If you are looking to use a turf field, contact (here) before reserving the field.
  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 info below for reservations:
    • Garfield Location: CLOSED for SPRING 2020
      • Email (here) with the following information:
        Name
        Phone number
        Division (ie 09U)
        Time of training session (ie 5:00-6:00)
        Day of the week (ie Mon and Wed)
    • Adams Area Location:
      • Email (here) with the following information:
        Name
        Address
        Phone number
        Email address
        Division (ie 09U)
        Time of training session (ie 5:00-6:00)
        Day of the week (ie Mon and Wed)
    • Corvallis School locations except Adams & Garfield
    • Philomath is first come, first serve.
      • Fall: The varsity soccer field is closed to AYSO. Teams need to share grass areas with the school sports teams that have first priority.
      • Spring: The school baseball and softball teams have priority to the grass areas and AYSO teams need to share the space with PYAC softball and baseball.
  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.
