North Los Altos / Los Altos Hills, CA - AYSO Region 43

Player Registration FAQs

Q.  Why are we combining with Region 45?
A.  Over the past several seasons, our player and volunteer registrations have been declining. Although this is not unique to our region (or our sport - in general there has been a nationwide decline in youth sport participation for several years) - it has declined to a level where it has become very difficult to deliver a quality program for the kids.  By combining forces with Mountain View / South Los Altos (Region 45) we will be able to create a much better overall experience for the players and the volunteers!

 

Q. Can my child be placed on the same team as his/her sibling or friend?
A.  It's possible - but not guaranteed.  See the Buddy Form information here.


Q. How do I request that my child be placed on a team with a specific coach?
A. Unfortunately, special requests for coach placement cannot be accepted. Please read here for additional information.


Q. Where are the practices held / games played?

A. Younger age groups typically practice at a nearby school or park facility - one to two afternoons each week depending on coach availability / schedule.  Older age groups may practice further from their home area, simply because there are fewer teams / fewer options for large fields.  Games for all age groups are also held at area schools and park facilities on Saturdays.

Q. How can I help make sure AYSO soccer is a great experience for my kids?
A. VOLUNTEER!  We need coaches to help the kids learn, and we need referees to keep the matches SAFE, FAIR, and FUN!  Most importantly, make sure that your own behavior around the soccer field sets a positive example.  Please read the Kids Zone Pledge for specific advice.

AYSO is a parent-run, volunteer organization. A “Board of Parents” meets monthly year round to plan and execute the 2 playing seasons. Many hands make the work lighter. These jobs are typically 1-2 season commitments. We always need help in these areas:

  • Division (Age Group) Coordinator
  • Referee Staff
  • Coach Staff
  • Volunteer Coordinator and Appreciation
  • Marketing
  • Registration
  • Field Lining
  • Field Management and Equipment
  • Uniform and Equipment Ordering
  • Web Site and Communication posting and enhancement
  • Regional Commissioner, Board Secretary, Treasurer, and other administrative staff
  

Q. Who runs the league?  Who are the coaches and referees?
A. AYSO is an all-volunteer organization.  The vast majority of the roles are filled by parents of the players, although anyone can volunteer to help.  The positions we most desperately need filled are coaches, assistant coaches, and referees.  No previous soccer experience is required.  We offer free training classes that will to enable you to succeed and have fun.  Have more questions about volunteering - see our Volunteer page for more information!
