Fees are $195. This covers two eight-week soccer seasons in fall 2014 and spring 2015 -plus- a uniform, team photo, and end-of-season trophy (for U10 and under).
New Timelines; New Process
AYSO 418 is bumping up the timelines. This year, application runs between April 21 to June 30.
This bumped up timeline also helps get the information flowing to parents earlier in the fall.
Applications must be completed before June 30 to guarantee child’s placement on team rosters and schedules. (After June 30, parents will have one final opportunity to apply from July 15 to August 10 for $235. Child placement on team rosters and schedules is not guaranteed.)
If you experience any difficulties, please contact email@example.com.
General Application Instructions
For more information on what division your child will play this fall, see the Fall & Spring Program page.
Region 418 makes a limited number of scholarships available. If you wish to inquire about or be considered for a full or partial scholarship, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com for a confidential discussion. No child will be excluded because their family cannot afford the registration fee.
For New Players
In addition to a completed application and submission of the application fee, proof of age must be submitted for players who are *new* to Region 418. A copy of a birth certificate, passport, state ID or other document showing the new player's name and birth date can be mailed to AYSO Region 418 Registrar, 4507 N. Ravenswood, Suite 101, Chicago, IL 60640 or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for your interest in volunteering! For a list of the volunteer positions, see the Volunteer page or the Parent Handbook. As we explain on the Volunteer page, all new and returning volunteers must submit volunteer applications.
Volunteer applications are in addition to the volunteering interest information submitted with a player application.
To submit a volunteer application:
REMEMBER, AYSO IS AN ALL-VOLUNTEER ORGANIZATION, AND VOLUNTEERS IN ALL CAPACITIES ARE NEEDED TO CONTINUE TO PROVIDE CHICAGO CHILDREN THE HIGH QUALITY, POSITIVE SOCCER EXPERIENCE THAT AYSO REGION 418 OFFERS.
Only interest, not experience, is needed. Region 418 will provide the training and mentorship you need to become a coach, referee, or other Region 418 volunteer.
For questions about the volunteer application process, please contact Barbara Passman, Child and Volunteer Advocate (volunteer registratrar) at email@example.com.
eAYSO does not send an email confirmation of an application, but parents do receive, via our merchant service company, confirmation that their credit card payment of the player fee was successful. The "Online payments" and "Print player forms" features ONLY become operative in eAYSO when an application has been correctly completed and filed. So, if you can see the option to pay the fee online and/or print a copy of your child's application, you know that you successfully filed the application. Upon receipt of payment, the player is then registered by the region.
Should there be questions concerning the application process, please contact Susan Boush, AYSO Region 418 Registrar, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
