NOTE: Games or registration may be subject to cancellation based on available volunteers and/or a volunteer’s certifications. In order to provide a safe experience for the children, all volunteers are subject to a background check and fingerprinting and must complete trainings to be qualified to volunteer. If a volunteer is not compliant or is not available, we may cancel games or practices without refund until the team has all compliant volunteers. In order to prevent cancellations, please help us by volunteering today and completing all necessary trainings and steps in all required areas.

Registration FAQs

The Q & A below answers our most commonly asked questions. If you still have questions, please email our Registrar who will answer your question or refer you to a person who can.

Can I get help completing or starting the online registration?

Yes, attend one of our in-person registration events and we can help you.

The system seems to placing my child in what seems like the incorrect age division, what is the age determination being used?
Please see the updated age determination chart here

Does everyone get to play?
Everyone Plays. There are no bench warmers in AYSO. Our region requires that all players in our core program play at least 3/4 of every game except in the rarest of circumstances.

Buddy Requests: Can I request my child to be on the same team with a friend?
5U, 6U, 7U, 8U: Yes, if possible.
 9U- 14U: No
16U, 19U: Yes, with limitations (i.e. the only two GKs in the program will be split to each team).
Balanced Teams take precedence over buddy requests.

Coach Requests: Can I request a certain coach for my child?
5U, 6U, 7U, 8U: Yes, if possible.
9U - 14U: No
16U, 19U: Yes, if possible.

Is there AYSO soccer for high school players?
Yes!  In fact, more than half of our 16U and 19U players represent local high school soccer teams and some of our 19U players are college students. The high school soccer season follows the AYSO soccer season. There is no schedule conflict.

My son/daughter has never played soccer before. Can he/she sign up?
Of course! Players must only meet the age requirement of being 4 to 18 years of age on Jan 1.  One of our core philosophies is Open Enrollment!

My child has a physical, mental or emotional disability and cannot keep up with other kids. Can he/she still play?
Yes!  You should consider having your child play in our VIP Program, one of the first and largest in the country!  Email our VIP Coordinator for more information.

Can my two kids be on the same team?
If they're within the age range and gender of their division we will put them on the same team.

Is there a soccer program in the summer?
Yes, the Summer program is for divisions 5U - 14U.

Do you offer a highly competitive level?
Our Advanced Play Program has All Stars, Spring Select and EXTRA. Our most skilled and competitive players try-out for acceptance into AYSO's United Soccer Club, whose teams compete against the best club teams in Southern California.

Will my child have fun? He/she has never played soccer before.
Soccer is a game, and games are fun!  Winning is also fun, but AYSO is about so much more than winning.  It's about player development, good sportsmanship, friendships and, most of all, having fun!

If I miss all the registration events, can I still sign up my child?
Online registration is available. Your child's placement on a team is not guaranteed and you will not receive any discount.

Can I sign up after the season has started?
You can if we still have room and the addition of your child does not upset the team balancing.

Does my child get a trophy for playing?
All 5U - 8U players receive a participation trophy at the end of the fall season. At 9U and above all trophies or medals are earned for the fall season.

My child can not practice on a certain day, can you accommodate?
The coach selects the day and time of training sessions. (If you coach, you can choose the time.) You can also ask the other parents on your child's team to consider organizing car-pools.

Can I pay with a credit card? Check?
Yes, you can pay online via credit card. We accept cash and checks at our in-person registration events.

Do you offer any discounts?
We offer early-registration and family discounts (Fall/Spring season only) online and at our in person registration events. 

Can I get a refund if my child withdraws from the program?
Yes, if the request for a refund is made before the day of the first scheduled game. Please refer to our refund policy.

Can my company be a sponsor?
Sponsorship starts as low as $150.00. Please contact our Marketing Director or check our Sponsors page.

Is my donation tax deductible?
AYSO is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization Tax ID# 95-6205398. Your contribution is tax deductible subject to current taxation laws. Please check with your accountant or tax professional. 

I've never played or coached soccer before, can I sign up to be a coach?
Many of our first time coaches and referees have no experience. We will cover the cost for the training.

Can I coach my own child? Grandchild? Niece/nephews? Neighbor?
Yes! Please indicate on the player's registration form and contact your division coordinator.

Do you offer training for coaches?
We offer all levels of age appropriate training. Tustin AYSO will pay the cost of the class.

Are the coaches qualified?
All coaches are Safe Haven certified and have age-specific training.

Can I coach two teams? If yes, will the games be scheduled at different times?
We strongly discourage coaches from coaching more than one team. Coaching two teams requires permission from the Regional Coach Administrator. We do not guarantee that the games will be at different times. In most cases, we will encourage you to coach one and be the assistant coach for the other team.

I don’t know anything about soccer. Will you train me to be a referee?
Yes! We will cover all the costs to train you and provide you with all the equipment you need to be a successful referee.
