Registration

Welcome to Oro Valley Region 922 American Youth Soccer Organization!  

We are currently running 2 Soccer seasons (see our Calendar tab for Registration times):
FALL season runs from late August to early December.
SPRING season runs from late February to early May. 
Summer Soccer Camps are run by Challenger Sports - See more at Challengersports.com

Please scroll down to the "AGE GROUPS" content below before REGISTERING on the link at the very top of the screen.  You may be surprised to learn your 9 year old actually is in 12U and not 10U!   
Starting at 12U, you are in the "Area" league which plays other AYSO Regions around Tucson and Southern AZ, requiring travel.   The system auto assigns your kids to the division based on birth year so you cant pick the wrong one.  You need to know your correct division so you don't show up at the wrong place!  

Our Registration is a 2 part process:

1.  Signing up in the "Tryout" - the initial step of the registration process.  This is not a tryout as all kids are accepted in AYSO.  This is a FREE process - it is only letting us know you are interested and if we are still accepting players to join teams, we will contact you with a meeting date.  Signing up for the tryout
does not mean you have been entered into the season to play soccer. 
Spaces on teams may gone.

If the Tryout Registration period has closed to sign up, you will get a "No Programs Available" message.

2.  The 2nd part is accepting the team invite.  We determine team rosters based on how many teams we can make which relies on volunteers to coach.  Players are placed on a team and a roster invite link with payment process is emailed to you. Here you are required to "e-sign" and answer required questions like uniform size.  After this process you will be contacted by a Coach with practice information to start the season. If you are ready and your child are ready to begin "drop off" for practices, you must print the "e-sign" pages (they say you allow us to act on your behalf in an emergency), sign them, and give to your coach.

AGE GROUPS




Note:  Each season year is from August 1st to July 31st.  The 2018 - 2019 season starts 8/1/18 and runs to 7/31/19.  Our Fall Season only lasts from Aug to Dec.  Practices begin till Late August, games start in September and end in December.  All Star/Travel teams and Challenge "Club" teams continue playing in the Spring. 
After 6U there are no Odd number divisions, they will be played in the older even number division.  For example 7U will be grouped with 8U, 9U will be with 10U.  11U thru 18U play in Area Interplay and the divisions could be changed based on the number of participants.

The effective date of age determination for registration shall be the player's age as of December 31 looking ahead of the Membership Year. Example: For 2017 the division the child will be placed in will be determined based on their age as of December 31, 2018. This age determination does not apply to Playground or Schoolyard division.

** Playground is a program specially designed for 3 to 4 year olds to develop Fundamental Motor Skills that will prepare the child for soccer and other sports. The player must be 3 years old by the date of the first Region activity. The Region must set the registration minimum age date to the day and month of first acitivity minus three years. For example, if your first activity is 9/2/2017 your minimum age date will be 9/2/2014 so that the child can be three years old by that date.

*** Schoolyard is a program designed for 4 year olds that continues the learning of fundamental motor skills and introduces soccer skills. The player must be 4 years old by the date of the first Region activity. The Region must set the registration minimum age date to the day and month of first activity minus four years. For example, if your first activity is 9/2/2017 your minimum age date will be 9/2/2013 so that the child can be four years old by that date.

Both Programs align with US Soccer's Player Development Initiatives.


Why AYSO and Why Soccer?

What is AYSO?

The American Youth Soccer Organization is the largest national youth soccer league.  AYSO is divided up into Sections, Areas, and Regions across the country.  Tucson and Southern AZ is Area 12A.  Area 12A is divided into multiple Regions.  Oro Valley is Region 922.  AYSO is a volunteer-run organization. Coaches, referees and administrators are ALL volunteers. Every single last person you see helping is a volunteer from the top to the bottom.  Nationwide, over 220,000 parents, neighbors, relatives and friends lend their time and talents so that each child gets a terrific AYSO experience.  AYSO's volunteer foundation ensures that it's all about what's good for kids. It also makes AYSO very affordable. AYSO operates in a business manner, but volunteers ensure its "profits" are happy, healthy kids playing a sport they can enjoy for life.  AYSO has developed special training that helps parents who may have little or no soccer experience quickly gain the age-appropriate knowledge and skills they need to be effective coaches and referees. It also has unique administrative and management training. This ensures that each community program:  

  • Abides by the AYSO philosophies: Everyone Plays®, Balanced Teams, Positive Coaching, Good Sportsmanship, Open Registration and Player Development.
  • Offers a great AYSO experience
  • Continues to grow, offering the AYSO opportunity to more children

It only takes a few hours to become qualified as an introductory-level coach or referee. But if you're not able to commit even that much time, there are many small jobs you can help with. Even a couple of hours each season are an important contribution to your team and Region!  AYSO training doesn't stop as long as you're having fun. Referees, coaches and administrators have clinics, workshops and other advanced training available to advance their skills.

A Game For Kids And A Game For Life!

AYSO is child-first and child focused. We are a soccer organization with happy, healthy kids as our passion.

Every decision, every rule and every program has "what's good for kids" as its basis. Every girl and boy stepping on a soccer field for the first time can have fun. AYSO's child-first approach also makes it one of the finest player development programs. Everybody likes to win, but developing successful players and people is what's fundamental in AYSO.

You can set a soccer ball down on any corner in the world and have friends. It is a global sport that Americans have embraced in record numbers... because it's fun even with a beginner's skill. It's also a game you can play and enjoy for the rest of your life (U-5 soccer is one of the fastest growing levels in the U.S.!)

With children's natural joy in running and kicking, soccer builds on these two skills and adds in techniques to control the ball and work as a team. It also encourages creative decision making and strategic thinking. And it's a fast game that keeps each player moving the entire time. In AYSO there's no spending the game on the bench!

AYSO has age appropriate small-sided games. A full size soccer team has 11 players on the field. But smaller-sided teams for younger children allow more touches on the ball and a more successful soccer learning environment.

AYSO small-sided games emulate classic "street soccer" where children of many skill levels choose up teams and play together for a fun neighborhood game. This is a similar environment to where many of the greatest soccer players in the world developed their skills. Small-sided games continue as excellent development
