New vs Returning?

Returning players have played AYSO in the past. New players need to have their Date of Birth verified before the first game day. You can upload a document for verification, or you can get the DOB verified at a registration event.

Games?

Core games are played on Saturdays at Adams Elementary School between 8:30am and 3:00pm. Older age group teams may periodically travel to other locations in the mid-valley for away games. EXTRA teams often travel and could play on Saturday after 3pm &/or on Sundays in the afternoon.

Practices?

Practice locations and times are determined by your volunteer coach, we try to group players and coaches in zones. 5U & 6U practice on the same day as the games, see the division page for the likely number of practices and duration (for 11U+ 7-8 weeks in the fall season, often 14-16 practices at 1+ hour each).

 

Payment Information

How Much?

Core programs include the cost of the program ($70) and the yearly membership to AYSO ($22.75). Total is $92.75. Other programs will have different costs shown in Sports Connect.
Scholarships often reduce the total price to $42.75, see section below.

Cash or Check?

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

Scholarship?

You register/apply the same as everyone else, when asked about eligibility for a scholarship during registration, check yes. Register (here).

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 and you can finish the application online.

Special Requests

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.

 

Team Formation

How are teams formed?

We ask registration questions and use player evaluations to try and balance teams, this is a secondary priority during team formation. Parents have consistently indicated practice areas/zones or schools should be our first priority. For younger ages we look to group players by schools, if that does not work, or we do not have enough players, we go by practice zones. Older ages are by practice zones, and we attempt to do some balancing with neighboring zones when possible.

Will I have to travel to Corvallis for practice?

We will form separate location teams wherever possible, when the team balance works for the division. If we are not able to get the number of players or balance the team, we will use practice zones to get you on a team near your location.

The zones by city will be honored when possible, if not we will notify you.

 

Application Times

When is Registration?

We run a member year, the member year is exactly the same as a school year (Aug-Jul).

Three types of registrations:
  • Open Application in May registers for both Fall and Spring.
    • Includes at least two registration events. This registration time allows us plenty of time to work on placement requests and get uniforms for all players.
  • Limited Application in August for School Year and in February for just Spring.
    • This registration is only to fill vacancies on teams. In some circumstances we will add new teams. This registration time has no guarantees, i.e. we will not be able to fulfill special placement requests or special orders for uniforms will not arrive until late in the season.
  • Deadline Application before first game.
    • This registration is only to fill a team NEED, and it is usually conducted with the instruction of team formation. This registration time has no guarantees, and could result in adjusted costs because we can not get uniforms for the player.
