Fall Soccer Registration Open

Rec Soccer for Fall and Spring

High School Rec Program

AYSO High School

We need a program coordinator to get this going!


High School Pickup Play

Based on the AYSO's Six Philosophies, we intend to provide the same safe, fair, fun, and positive environment into our AYSO Adult Soccer League.

Format is fluid and evolving, but skill and fitness based:

  • Co-ed, 6v6 and/or 7v7 pick-up games.
  • Smaller-sized fields.
  • Field sizes will vary with skill and fitness.
  • No fixed teams, players divided each week.
  • Unlimited substitutions.
  • No referees, no slide tackling.
  • Shin guards are required and soccer shoes are recommended.
  • Please no jewelry (including rings, earrings, watches).
  • We will follow AYSO Philosophies and our main goal is to have fun.

Players overwhelmed by the level of competition, or the level of fitness, may move to another field more appropriate to their needs.

Player Divisions:

  • Recreational:  New to soccer (few skills), limited experience. TO Basic skills, some competitive experience, played soccer a long time ago.
  • Intermediate: Played competitive soccer, good individual skills, low fitness level. TO Played competitive soccer, strong individual skills, great fitness level.

When & Where:

  1. Sat. Nov 12th 2022 - Apr 1st 2023 TIME TBD @ Adams Elementary - Meet By PickleBall Courts (here).

Signing Up

You can register to play soccer before the season starts by filling out the registration online (here).

  • Typically, in May or August for fall & spring, and in February for just spring.
  • You have the option of paying online by credit card. (If you want to pay by check or cash, you will have to attend a registration event listed in the calendar.)
  • It is best to register early to be guaranteed of a spot. We try to accommodate as many players as want to play, but are limited by time or team openings.


At the regional level, AYSO is a 100% volunteer organization; no one gets paid for their effort, which for a core group of people is very considerable. Simply, AYSO could not and would not exist without its volunteers. Everyone plays because everyone volunteers. Please consider volunteering (here).

Frequently Asked Questions



Core games are played on Saturdays at Adams Elementary School between 8:00am and 3:00pm. The 7th & 8th grade division will 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.


Practice locations and times are determined by your volunteer coach, we try to group players and coaches in zones. See the division page for the likely number of practices and duration.

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.

Where are practices?

We will form separate location/school teams wherever possible, when the team balance works for the division. Coaches are often from that area and usually choose locations in the area. 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.


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.
