AYSO Region 88 Glendale

Important Information

What should I be aware of?
Immediately after the last registration date (June 30), we start the process of putting the teams together for the upcoming season. When this is completed, uniforms will be ordered and the coaches will be notified.

What are the guidelines for returning to play?
Please click here for the Region's Return-to-Play Policy for the 2021 Fall season.

When do the coaches get their teams?
Coaches should expect to receive their team rosters after the player drafts (between July 14-16) or after teams have been formed on or after July 25.

When do the players get called?
Teams may begin practice on or after August 1. The coaches will call the players usually from mid to late July. They will give you all the information you will need in regards to practice times and location. Each coach sets his/her own practice days, time and location. The practice fields are located throughout Glendale, La Crescenta and Montrose.

It’s after Aug. 1st, and my child has not been called. What do I do?
Please do not panic if you see teams practicing and your child has not been called. Not all teams begin practice at the same time. The very young teams, in particular, do not always begin practice in August. Also some coaches may be out of town. If your child has not been called by August 14, you may email [email protected].

What else does my child need?
The registration fee includes: uniform (jersey, shorts, socks) supplemental accident insurance, a yearbook and a trophy. In addition, you may need to obtain shoes, shin guards, a soccer ball (size depends on age) and a water bottle.

How often are practices and games?
Practices are held once a week (field and times to be determined by your child’s coach). Games will be on Saturdays with the first game on September 11 (September 18 for U4). Games and practices will be held at a field in Glendale, La Crescenta and Montrose.

Can I be refunded if we decide to cancel? 
Players withdrawing prior to July 18 at 11:59 p.m. will be issued a full refund. There are no refunds (no exceptions) after July 18. All requests for a refund must be submitted in writing by submitting a Cancellation Request form.

Late registration?
Late registration begins after our last registration on July 1. Those interested sign up for the waiting list or in some cases, you will be allowed to pay if there is space available.

Please Remember…
AYSO is a parent-based volunteer organization established to provide a positive experience for our children. Go to the games. Learn the rules. Above all, be tolerant. Your child, your coach, the referees are all here to provide are all doing their best. Let your child play, allow the coach to coach and please refrain from yelling at the referees (especially). These are all volunteers who allow this program to happen.

Fall 2021 Upcoming Events

NEW PLAYER EVALUATIONS

Balanced Teams is one of AYSO's six core philosophies. In order to adhere to this important philosophy, our region forms new teams as evenly as possible. This provides a stronger learning experience for teams as they play teams comprised of similar ability. It also allows for each player to experience playing with a wide variety of teammates of different play skills.

The New Player Evaluations helps provide our region with the information we need to properly place players on teams based on their level of experience, the skills they demonstrate on the field and more!

Per Region 88 rules, every new player in the 10U and older divisions must have a New Player Evaluation before being placed on a team. “New player” constitutes anyone who did not play in the Region the previous fall season. Placement on a team may be denied if a player is not able to attend an evaluation if requested by a designated Region 88 volunteer. 

Additional Notes:

  1. Each player will only be requested to attend ONE date and time. 
  2. All players in the 10U-19U divisions must attend
  3. VIP, U4, 5U-8U do not need to attend
  4. Please be sure to have shin-guards available, a soccer ball and water

If any of you have any questions about the event, feel free to send an email to our Coach Administrator Iain Blackwood at [email protected]

Volunteers Needed

HEAD COACHES ARE NEEDED

All AYSO Regions are a 100% volunteer run organization. It's only through the help of our incredible volunteers that we're able to make all of this happen for you. Without our volunteers, our children simply cannot play. 

Coaches will work with our Practice Fields Coordinator in working out their own practice schedules. We'll also make sure to provide training and all of the equipment you'll need.

AYSO Region 88 makes it as easy for you to get out there and Coach. 

Currently we have several divisions that are in need of Head Coaches. Teams cannot be formed until volunteers raise their hands. If anyone needs information on how to register as a Head Coach, please contact us at [email protected]. We promise you'll have a wonderful experience and your child will love you for it!
