Fall Soccer

Friend Requests – Fall 5U to 7U - We permit “friend requests” and try to the best of our ability to meet them, in our fall U5 to U7 program. Scores and standings are not kept in these programs, and any competitive imbalances are to be managed by the coaches by sharing players, reducing/increasing numbers on the field, etc. We understand at the younger ages, being comfortable in a team setting is just as important as competitive balance.

Player Draft – Fall 8U to 19U– In our fall program, every year since 2010, we have a player “draft” based on player ratings where the coach chooses his/her team including their assistant coach and players. We also balance first and second year players between the teams, and distribute referees across the teams. This has created tremendous balance for the teams in these divisions. Although score differentials may vary from game to game, and other factors come into play such as injuries and coaching, we have found that many teams can and do have a legitimate chance to compete for region championships every year. This is AYSO Balanced teams and more fun for all! Although we don’t use friend requests in this team formation, coaches do get to pick their teams, and the kids are at an age where they can more comfortably make new friends.

The season usually starts near the end of August and plays through the middle of November.
