Calendar

Our primary season is in the Fall and runs from late August to mid-November. With the exception of our Under-6 (U06) divisions, children attend training sessions once (U07 and U08) or twice (U10 and above) each week and play a game on Saturdays (Sundays for U16 and U19).  U06 holds one 75-minute session on Saturday afternoons, combining a training session and a scrimmage game.

For guaranteed team placement, you must register by June 1st. Registration is online again this year with an optional walk-in registration date for those who need to register in person.  Look for registration reminders in your Email and in school notices.

Sorry, Region 45 does not guarantee placement of your child on any particular team, with any specific players or on any particular practice days.

Division Placement Guidelines

All divisions are divided into two groups (boys and girls). Team sizes may vary when teams are formed depending on late drops and availability of coaches. If your child has an early birthday (typically after July 31) and you would like them playing at their grade level, please make sure to select “Play Up” when registering. AYSO policies do not permit us to have a player “play down” and age, not grade dictate which division your child will be placed.

AYSO National’s coach certification / training policy requires all coaches and assistant coaches who wish to coach in the National Games, concurrent secondary play competitions or nationally sanctioned AYSO tournaments to be trained at the level of the team they coach. The impact on this for Region 45 is that achieving these levels of training will be highly encouraged and U12 and U14 teams which are coached by coaches that are not certified will likely not be eligible to participate in the Area 2A tournament should they qualify.

Soccer Camps

AYSO Region 45 will host two weeks of soccer camps during the summer. The camps will once again be provided by UK International Soccer Camps Inc doing business as AYSO Soccer Camps and both half day (9am to noon) and full day (9am to 3:30pm) will be offered.

Please visit the Summer Camps page for more details.

Spring Soccer

Please visit the Spring Soccer page for options on playing in the spring as AYSO Region 45 unfortunately is unable to field an open registration spring season.

AYSO Region 45 does field a limited number of Spring Select Soccer teams.
