Winter Indoor Soccer Season 2

[> Signup Online <]
Signups will open in late December.

This is really fun soccer!! This league is an extension of AYSO and will remain consistent with its philosophies. Balanced teams will be formed from registered AYSO players who sign up for indoor soccer.

All players from divisions 8U - 15U are invited to sign up (here).

All games will be played at the Corvallis Sports Park. The 6 games are about 36 minutes long and are often scheduled on Saturdays from 12-6pm or in the week between 4-6pm (there are no practices). This session will go from about 2/1 - 3/23, team notifications will happen by 1/28, with a schedule expected soon after.

Sign up for indoor soccer is online (here). The fee is $45 and will need to be paid by Credit Card when you signup. Players that have not played with AYSO this School Year often need to pay the AYSO membership fee of $17.50. We cannot guarantee that a division will have enough players for teams, if that is the case and we cannot place your player, your credit card will be refunded the $45.

FAQ

  • What is the cost for the AYSO Indoor season?
    $45/player all paid online by Credit Card. No scholarships are available for this program.

  • Can we play up a division?
    Please register for the division & use this request form (here) to have us move the player up.

  • What is the refund policy?
    We cannot guarantee that a division will have enough players for teams, if that is the case and we cannot place your player, your credit card will be refunded the full amount. Players dropping after placement, but before games, will be charged a non-refundable fee of $2. Players dropping after playing cannot be refunded. Please fill out the refund request form (here).

  • My child is currently enrolled in the 6U division. Can he/she sign up for the indoor season?
    The indoor season starts at 8U only. Historically there has not been enough interest for form teams at the 6U level. If you wish to have your player play up in 8U you can.

  • Are there practices?
    No. For the indoor season, there are no practices. Typically, managers will organize the teams a few minutes before the game and do a brief (4 minute) kick around.

  • How many games will each team play?
    Each team will be scheduled to play 6 games during the season.

  • I currently coach. Can I sign up and keep my team intact for the indoor season?
    We would love to have you coach your child's indoor team. You will not, however, be able to keep your outdoor team intact for the indoor season. AYSO will be forming new teams from individuals who register to play. We adhere to the AYSO philosophy of creating balanced teams to ensure fairness for all.

  • How long are the games?
    36 minutes.

  • Are scholarships available?
    As we try to break even with our special programs, we will not be able to provide scholarships to kids.

  • What happens if not enough players sign up to form a team?
    If there are not enough players to form a team, we will refund your entire amount.

  • Are special shoes required?
    INDOOR SOCCER SHOES or TURF SHOES are REQUIRED for 15U & 19U.
    Court shoes are allowed for 8U - 12U only.
    For safety reasons NO RUNNING SHOES are allowed.

  • Are teams single-gender or co-ed?
    8U, 10U, 12U,  & 15U are divided by gender.

  • How do managers and referees learn about differences between outdoor play and indoor play and the Corvallis Sports Park rules and operating the time clock?
    We will offer some brief training for managers and updates for referees before the first games.

Typical Game Day (10U+)

Game Day Gear: The sports park will have a bag with soccer balls and pinnies for 10U+ players, stored at the front desk.

Parents: Ensure you player is wearing the right equipment and has a white shirt; first game day, sign the release form and turn it in; drop your player off with the right team manager by the benches next to the field; if you are staying for the game, I suggest you go upstairs to spectate and cheer (note: players can hear your conversations and comments from the balcony); if you have young children with you, consider the downstairs space by the benches (do not kick soccer balls against walls); from entering the field the game is about 42min, be back to meet your player in the lobby at that time.

Players: Wear a white shirt (or team designated color and bring a white shirt); standard soccer restrictions ([no watch, earrings, etc.], socks over shin guards, court shoes (8U-12U) or indoor turf shoes (15U)); the field could be cold at start, but you will warm up fast, sport pants can be a good idea; enter on the ground floor and check in with your manager at the bench seats right next to the field (be sure you know your team name); when your manager says okay, enter the field and place your equipment in one of the player boxes, after the other team is out; warm up, stretch, and wait for positions from your manager; after the game, grab your equipment and leave the field to the lobby.

Team Managers: Bring a printing of your roster, the referee could have a roster for you (use the roster for sub/player tracking); if you are the first game, or the team before you uses different size soccer balls, ask the front desk to check for the game day bag for your size; gather your players in the waiting area by the benches (or on the field if the referee is present); check player equipment on arrival and note them in your roster; enter the field with your team after the prior game clock is done (about 5min before your start time according to the field clock); figure out a team box to the west and place your equipment, after the other team is out of the box; talk with the opposing team manager, find the pinnies, and decide who will wear them (often the team with players not all wearing one color); indicate positions to players (1 GK (use a rotation if needed), 2 defenders, 2 midfield (your energizer bunnies), 2 forwards, remainder to box), give the goal keeper a unique color pinnie; after game start, do on the fly substitutions (players should only sit out for 6min at a time), and mark the subs in the roster; I use a method where I sub a player every 2min (w/ 3subs) or every 3min (w/ 2subs); at half YOU HAVE 1MIN, swap the goal keeper (if they want to stay in the position, press them to play the field), and do your 1 sub; at the end of the game, gather all the gear from the team box and leave the field, we have little time between games, so do the high five off the field; Jason provides support for team managers, contact Indoor Coord (here).

Referees: Get team roster from front desk (they will often highlight the players missing something); if clock is off, ask them to turn it on; enter the field and place your gear in the box to the south east; check the sports park clock (often 6 min slow) and set the game clock to count down to about 2min before the game should start; check w/ managers for players missing liability forms (you can give them the roster); check player equipment (standard soccer stuff)(15U needs indoor turf shoes); ensure the teams have consistent colors and the keeper is a unique color; get a game ball, if it is flat the front counter has a pump; INDOOR IS FAST, please do everything you can to keep the pace and get folks playing; set the clock for 18min, start the 18min within 1min of game start no matter what; you do not need to put scores on the board; at half set the clock for 1min or less to catch up; start the last 18min, 30seconds after the half time clock ran out, no matter what; take all of your equipment and help get game equipment off the field to the front desk; Luke provides support for referees, contact Ref Scheduler (here).
