What Will Fall Season Look Like?

Fall 2020 Season Dates: September 12th - October 31st


IMPORTANT UPDATE:
We have postponed the start of the Fall 2020 season for the Core 7U, 8U, 10U, 12U, and 14U divisions until Saturday, Sept. 19th, to allow us more time to finalize coach and player roster assignments. The 4U, 5U, 6U and 19U divisions will start the season as planned on Saturday, Sept. 12th. 

This fall we will offer modified programming with team practices and no games. Practice sessions may include intra-team scrimmages, however there will be no inter-team games or scrimmages. Our goal for the fall season is simple - to keep players in small groups and to give them an opportunity to exercise outdoors and to improve their soccer skills. We want players to improve their skills and to have fun playing AYSO soccer.

Even with safety protocols in place, AYSO Region 418 cannot guarantee that players, volunteers, parents and spectators will not be exposed to COVID-19 as a result of their participation in the AYSO Region 418 soccer programs. If you are not comfortable with our fall program and/or with our COVID-19 protocols, then please do not register your player this fall.

We are separating registration into separate fall and spring sessions this year. We are only asking for payment of the Fall 2020 registration fees at this time. All players that are registered for our fall season will be automatically pre-registered for the spring. Before the start of spring season, we will add the Spring 2021 registration fee to all pre-registered player accounts. Parents will then confirm their player's enrollment in spring by paying the Spring 2021 registration fee. Parents who wish to defer enrollment until spring may register their players for the Spring 2021 Wait List and they will be added to teams in the spring.
