Summer, Fall and Spring Seasons
This is the primary program of AYSO that includes all ages and over 90% of our players.
How to Sign-Up to Play: To join, sign-up at one of our in-person registration events in January, April, May or July, or mail-in your registration paperwork. Please visit our Registration page for details.
AYSO maintains the philosophies of EVERYONE PLAYS and OPEN REGISTRATION, this means that we accept all players regardless of ability and will continue to do so as long as we have space available. There are no address boundaries. We accept all players from all cities.
How to Coach a Team: During the player registration process, volunteer to coach a team by checking the appropriate box on the "How Can I Help" form. Additionally, contact the division coordinator of the division you'd like to coach. Coaches must complete Safe Haven certification and appropriate age-specific training.
In the standard primary program offering of Tustin AYSO, we have leagues for 4 to 19 year-old's split into 18 divisions (U5,U6,U7,U8,U10,U12,U14,U16,U19 - all ages have a separate boys and girls division).

Field Size is a guide and not exact, the actual field you play on may vary in size.
Under Max Roster Size, 'split field' means that the teams will split their team in two and play on two side-by-side fields.
