Dear Region 13 Families:

The COVID-19 quarantine has made it difficult to plan for anything, including the AYSO Fall 2020 Season. We know there will be soccer at some point – we just don’t know when, and we don’t know what it will look like yet.

Nothing is more important than the safety of our players, volunteers, and families, and as soon as it is safe to get the kids back out on the field, Region 13 will be ready. To this end, Fall registration is now open.

It looks a little different, in three ways –

      1. All players go directly to wait list, with no payment due at this time. We will only ask you to pay if and when we know there will be a Fall season. If we can proceed, we’ll assign your child a team and notify you to pay. If we are unable to have a Fall season, we won’t have to deal with any complicated refunds. Players will come off the wait list on a first-come, first-served basis, so make sure to grab your spot now.
      2. Fees are lower. Most years, regions tend to raise fees in the 6% range. This year, the Region 13 board voted to reduce registration fees to help families who feel the burden of the current economy. When you sign onto this wait list, you lock in the early-bird rate of $150, even though you don’t have to actually pay it until we know we can play. The $150 price is only guaranteed until July 15, so make sure you join the wait list to lock it in now. And as always, a discount of $20 applies for each sibling.
      3. More scholarships are available.  We won’t let the fee get in the way of a kid playing soccer, and with some families being hit harder than usual during this crisis, we have made more room than ever for scholarship help this year. Please please please do not hesitate to ask for help if the fees pose any financial hardship for your family (e-mail registrar@ayso13.org). Or, if you happen to be in a position to give, please consider a donation at checkout, as a way to support our scholarship fund.

And as always, we rely on our volunteers to make it all happen. Please consider volunteering as a Coach, Referee, Team Manager, or Board Member – click here to sign up. We will contact you later to submit the official volunteer application – for now, just let us know you’re interested. The number of kids we bring in from the wait lists will depend on the number of teams we can form, which in turn relies on the number of volunteers that sign up.

So here’s what you do next . . .

We will let you know as soon as we have any further clarity as to what Fall might look like.

We are navigating our way through a strange and remarkable period in time, and I hope we find ourselves in a better place on the other side of it. Until then, we look forward to seeing you all out on the field, as soon as it is safe to do so.
