AYSO Region 88 Glendale

Program Description

All-Stars is an invitation-only program offering an advanced skill level of soccer for players in the 10U, 12U and 14U divisions only, who participated in the previous Fall season and who have demonstrated excellence in skills, enthusiasm and commitment to AYSO's core values.

There are no tryouts.

This program includes Area 1C regions and games may be played in ANY of these locations: Arcadia (2), Pasadena (13), San Gabriel (40), Alhambra (60), Glendale (88), Temple City (98), South Pasadena and San Marino (214), South El Monte (908) and Boyle Heights (1304).

  • Teams play a compact schedule with games on Saturdays and possibly on Sundays starting in January through the first weekend in March.
  • Local travel in the San Gabriel Valley will be required.
  • The number of All-Star teams formed is often limited by the number of qualified parents who volunteer to referee and coach. Players whose parents volunteer to referee or coach will be given priority.
  • Those players that are selected to an All Star Team are expected to make all practices and games as there is an attendance requirement for all players in order to play in the All-Star playoffs.

FAQs

Who can participate?
To be eligible for the All Star program, interested players MUST:

  1. Be in good financial standing with the Region.
  2. Have played in the previous Fall program in 10U, 12U and 14U Divisions.
  3. Participated in a minimum of 70% of the Fall season practices and games. If injury or illness prevented participation in the required number of games then the player must have participated in 70% of the practices and games that were scheduled while the player was healthy to play.
  4. Upload a current player photo (full face, no sunglasses or hats) in the player's account during registration.

How are players selected for teams?
The selection of players is a collaborative process with all head coaches having input. Players are selected based on the following:

  • observation of players during Fall Season games
  • the needs of individual teams
  • player age and roster size restrictions
  • input from the player’s Fall season coach
  • demonstrated commitment to the practices and travel required
  • family volunteerism (very important)
  • adherence by the player and his or her family to AYSO principles and values. (important)

It is possible that a skilled player will not be selected if, in the opinion of the coaches, a player or his or her parents are divisive or disruptive to team unity.

The number of teams formed in a division is often limited by the number of parents who volunteer to referee and coach. Players whose parents volunteer to referee or coach during the All Star season will be given priority. To be formed, All-Star teams require one Head Coach, two to three (2-3) Referees on each team. 

All Star players are selected to teams at an All Star selection meeting. All players who participated in the Fall core season are eligible to play. Coaches will choose players to be selected to a team based on their observations during regular season and recommendations made during the final evaluations held in November.


What is the Schedule?
Games begin in January and end in mid-March. Teams have weeknight practices 1 or 2 times a week which can start as early as mid-December and may have games every Saturday and Sunday from January through early March. There may also be weeknight games.

Those players that are selected to a team are expected to make all practices and games as there is an attendance requirement for all players in order to play in the playoffs.

When will registration be available?
Registration is available in early December. Instructions to register for the All Star program will be provided to those accepted in November.

Are Volunteers Needed?
All-Stars is not a continuation of our Fall Core season but a completely separate season. Volunteer positions are needed and may need to show flexibility in the roles they will be responsible for. Parents will apply for volunteer positions and will confirm their volunteer positions prior to the player's selection to an All Star Team.

How do I apply to Coach? Referee? 
Volunteers should apply to the roles during the registration process for their child. In particular, qualified and appropriately qualified Referees are always needed in every division. Final volunteer assignment will be determined during the All-Star Selection process.

What are the All Star coach requirements?
Coaches must have the following qualifications:

  • Coach Certification at the level they are coaching AND one level above. (e.g., a 12U All Star Coach will hold 12U Certification AND Intermediate Coach Certification)
  • Regional Referee Certification.

What are the All Star referee requirements?
Each team must have 1-2 Parent Referees as noted below:

Division Section / Area Regional
10U 1 AR 1 Center Referee, 1 AR
12U 1 AR 1 Center Referee (Intermediate), 1 AR
14U 1 (Intermediate+) AR Not Applicable


In addition, the Region must provide a pre-specified number of Advanced / National Referees to support their teams.

When will players be contacted?
Players should be contacted in early December. Team formation is performed on a rolling basis and some players may be contacted as early as December 1. All players will be informed of their status by December 15.

What are the All Star rules?
All Star rules are governed by Area 1C and can be found at www.ayso1c.org

Area is designed primarily for players who are in the “younger” birthday year for each division. Each Region may one team in Area 1C’s Area All-Stars program in each of the boys and girls, 10U, 12U & 14U divisions.
