Play soccer in Pasadena, La Cañada, Altadena, California

AYSO Region 13 is the kids’ recreational soccer league in Pasadena, Altadena, and La Cañada, California. You’ll start with AYSO’s fall league. Players aged 3 to 18 may register, starting May 1, 2022. We turn wait lists on July 9 so it’s important you and your friends register before then. Then, over the summer, parents, grandparents, and friends (that’s you!) will learn to coach and referee. Teams are assigned in August, and games start in September.

AYSO’s core program is how most kids in our area are introduced to team sports. First-time and experienced players alike develop their skills, contribute to a team, and have fun. Balanced teams make for more interesting games, so teams in the 10U, 12U, and 14U divisions are formed by a blind draw, supervised by a person not involved in the division. In the noncompetitive divisions, 6U, 7U, and 8U, you can request to play with a friend. It’s easier to accommodate those requests if every family involved volunteers as a coach or referee. In 4U & 5U, the coaches are professionals, and all parents take turns assisting. In the most competitive divisions, 16U and 19U, there is a player draft. It’s easier If you start coaching when your child is young, you’ll be in a position to coach their team when they’re teenagers. In VIP, the activities are designed around the player needs and VIP Buddies help individual players.

In addition to the core program in the fall, there are programs in the winter for kids of all abilities, Winter Stars, Grad Series, and All-Stars, and a competitive league in the spring, the Spring Cup. Participation in All-Stars or tournament teams requires having played in the fall. The other programs are open to new players.

AYSO is more than a soccer league. It is a child development program that uses soccer as its main tool. Every decision is centered around what’s safe, fair, and fun for the children. You’ll see your child’s natural joy of running and kicking a ball develop into a lifelong love of sport, teamwork, and friendship, with a good deal of creative decision-making and strategic thinking along the way.

Region 13 is run entirely by volunteers, which means that in addition to signing up your child to play, you help make the soccer league happen. You can coach, referee, or manage a team, or contribute in many other ways. Please write to info@ayso13.org if you have any questions. A full list of the volunteers who make Region 13 go is on the Leadership page. Every family is expected to help out, however they can. See the Volunteer page for how to get started. There are many roles you can fill.

Welcome to Region 13, where Pasadena, Altadena, and La Cañada come to play soccer. I look forward to meeting you on the field!

Brandi and David Lane with the FireballsGet involved

I have really enjoyed coaching the boys and the support of the parents, and it feels great to know that I am contributing to my community. It’s also helped me keep my life balanced, spend more time with my family, and kept me active.
