While you’re here, how about answering a short survey about the fall season?
Winter programs run for 8 weeks in January – February. For All-Stars and Kindergarten Series, players must have played in the previous fall’s core program. For other programs, new players are invited to join after registering as AYSO members ($30, nonrefundable, pays for the insurance) through inLeague.
Winter Stars is an informal pickup-style soccer program on Sunday afternoons for ages 5-19, even during the Superbowl. Anyone may play, and the coaching is done by professional trainers. Parents volunteer by carrying goals, setting up the field, etc. Parents who have previously coached in Region 13 are welcome to join and learn a thing or two from the pros. Players who participate in Grad Series, Kindergarten Series, and All-Stars are invited to join Winter Stars at no extra cost. Register for Winter Stars.
Grad Series is a mini-season for kids born in 2014, who will be in 10U next fall, to try the more formal game, with large nets, positions, goalkeepers, and offside. Parents are trained to coach and referee in December and at the start of January. Register for Grad Series.
Kindergarten Series is under consideration, pending parent interest and field availability. This would be a 6-week mini-season for 5U players (who will generally be entering Kindergarten in the fall) to join a team with uniforms, play with other teams, and enjoy a snack afterwards. Parents are trained to coach and referee in December and at the start of January. Please answer this survey if you’re interested.
Bill Owen Spring Classic is a competitive (meaning, bring your A game or you’ll lose 13-0) tournament at the Rose Bowl around Spring Break.
Tryouts for EXTRA, the year-long travel teams, happen at the end of winter.
