Hello AYSO Soccer Families,
You might like to know that our Division Coach Administrators (our DCAs) are hard at work recruiting coaches, referees, and other volunteers as part of our team formation process leading toward the start of the Fall MY2017 Soccer Season.
We approach team formation in a very careful and structured way. We strive to organize teams so that every child will have an enriching experience playing soccer — and we go to great lengths to balance our teams with player, coach and referee talent.
Over the course of August, each age division (from 6U on up) will have its own target date for team formation. As teams are formed (on a staggered schedule through August), coaches will be reaching out to parents. At the same time, coaches will also be working within our reservation system to choose a date, time and location for practices. All coaches will have contacted families by the end of August.
For 6U and up, our first practices will begin during the week after Labor Day, and our first games will take place on Saturday, September 9, 2017. Our 4U and 5U divisions will be on a different schedule, with the first events taking place on Saturday, September 16.
Did you know that we have over 780 people (so far) who have already agreed to volunteer for our kids in this year alone? We are so glad to have you as part of AYSO and hope that you will consider becoming a volunteer so that you too can help enrich our kids’ lives.
Your coach will be contacting you before the end of August. If you have any questions that cannot wait for your coach at the end of August, please feel welcome to follow up with the DCA for your child’s division. (If you do, please understand that there are 2500 other kids that the DCAs are working to serve.) All of our DCAs are listed here: https://ayso13.org/coach/coaching-staff/
Thanks again for being an AYSO soccer family!
