The waitlist will give limited opportunity to sign up. Read the waitlist procedure in the panel below.

For any registration problems or questions, please call our Regional Commissioner or Registrar.

Players are put in teams at random to create Balanced Teams but he Coach's child is placed in the coach team.
Do not ask for a specific coach. Coaches receive team & players based on what the SportsConnect system distributes.

The board reserves the right to reassign players at any time for the benefit for the AYSO Regional Soccer Program.
We want all players to develop in a fun family atmosphere according to the AYSO Philosophies.

We plan to have 9 game days for the 2024 Fall Season. There is no guarantee.

VOLUNTEERING - Please read!

AYSO volunteers re-register in the seasonal program in their OWN  SportsConnect Account (SCA).
AYSO Volunteers are protected under the federal Volunteer Protection Act 1997 when meeting the requirements.
Volunteers not share an account with parents, spouses or others also NOT as added or 2nd Account Holder
To make a volunteer part of your family circle, create a volunteer role and use invite instead of selecting yourselves
when the role is selected and finish the procedure for volunteer application. The invitee must have a unique email. Thus
not  used as login on Sports Connect anywhere, like a Secondary Account Holder or Primary User.
Most volunteers work with or for a  team and must sign up as volunteer under the Soccer Seasonal 
Soccer program like FALL 2024 (Core). For example coaches, referees, team manager, team parent, field prep, etc.

Volunteers not working for a team or with a team.
These volunteers help the region run and improve the soccer program and work the entire year regardless of the
seasonal soccer program schedule. They not earn ref points, get benefits for a team or support specific team activities.
For these volunteers jobs are listed under "MY2024 Volunteers Not working with or for a team"
Volunteer records are only visible for the duration of the Season Program, Fall 2024 (Core).

As a rule of thumb, volunteers check their records each week while active in the Seasonal Program.
It is a good habit that volunteers check there record at the end of the season once more to ensure proper credentials.
Contact us immediately for any discrepancies. Certain records will expire and must be renewed.
If you would like to volunteer in some other way please  call Julio Velez at 661-556-2931.

Our regional board is trying our best to serve many players in our community. For questions contact our Regional Commissioner Julio Velez, [email protected].

Due to increasing late sign-ups of players it is no longer possible to meet the required minimum lead times for uniforms, inform coaches with sufficient time to reach out to parents to have their first meeting and to train coaches, referees and other volunteers on time before the soccer season opens. The system offers the waitlist solution for parents who sign up late,

Late responses from parents of players taken from the waiting list delayed registration and the opportunities for other players. In order to serve our community in the best way we had to limit response time to 48 hours. Once the email is sent that there is an opening for a player, the parent must pay online within 48 hours for the registration. See below procedure.

1.      Why a player is put on the waiting list?

a.       The registration period is closed.

b.      The max number of players in the division has been reached.

2.      What does it mean to be on a waiting list?

a.       The system will send an email that you are on the waiting list.

b.      There is no guarantee that the player has a place on a team but may have a chance.

c.       A wait-listed player shows $0 charge in your account.

d.      Check your email often.

3.      How are players taken of the waiting list?

a.       Players on the waiting list are taken off on a first-on first-off basis.

b.      An opening for a player on a team becomes available.

c.       The system will send an email with instructions to go to your account and pay the open balance.

d.      Click on the View/Pay in your shopping cart in your account to pay the balance.

e.        This has to be done within 48 hours.

f.        If registration completes with payment of balance, then the player is placed on a team.

4.      What happens if registration is not completed in 48 hours after a player is taken from the waiting list?

a.       That player has lost the immediate opportunity to get on a team.

b.      The next player on the waiting list is offered the opportunity starting with step 3c.
