FAQs

How old does my child have to be to play, and what division will my child be in?
Please view the Birth Year Chart for more information. 
Click Here for the AYSO Age Determination Chart, which shows the Fall Season of 2018 through the Spring Season of 2021.  Please make sure you are looking at the correct season and year. 

Why are the names of the divisions different?
AYSO has changed from a school year registration to a birth year registration in order to align with other  American youth soccer program providers interpretation of the U.S. Soccer Player Development Initiatives.
The effective date of age determination for registration shall be the player's age as of December 31 looking ahead of the Membership Year. Example:  For MY2018 the division the child will be placed in will be determined based on their age as of December 31, 2019. 
How does it really work? Registration for MY2017 (Fall 2017) for a player that is presently 11 and turns 12 at any time in 2018 will be in the 12U division.  If a player is presently 12, but turns 13 during the fall of 2017 or in 2018, s/he will be in 14U.

Are the teams co-ed?
The 6U teams are co-ed.  Once they are in 8U and above the boys and girls are separated.  Occasionally they will have scheduled games against each other just for fun!

What is a training session?
What used to be called a practice is now called a training session.

Where are the games and training sessions held?
Field assignments are determined by Washoe County Parks and Recreation.  Once we receive our permits for the season, the locations will be updated.

Can I bring my pet to training sessions and games?
No. Due to child safety, animals are NOT allowed at any AYSO function (this is also a Washoe County Parks and Recreation policy). Anyone who brings an animal to any AYSO function will be asked to remove the animal from the area. If the animal is not removed, the event will be stopped. Let’s keep the fields safe for all of us and keep our furry friends at home.
 
Service animals are permitted only as required by laws and regulations. Per ADA: “In situations where it is not obvious that the dog is a service animal, staff may ask only two specific questions: (1) is the dog a service animal required because of a disability? and (2) what work or task has the dog been trained to perform? Staff are not allowed to request any documentation for the dog, require that the dog demonstrate its task, or inquire about the nature of the person’s disability.
“The ADA does not require covered entities to modify policies, practices, or procedures if it would ‘fundamentally alter’ the nature of the goods, services, programs, or activities provided to the public. Nor does it overrule legitimate safety requirements. If admitting service animals would fundamentally alter the nature of a service or program, service animals may be prohibited. In addition, if a particular service animal is out of control and the handler does not take effective action to control it, or if it is not housebroken, that animal may be excluded.”

When will I know the training sessions and game schedules?
You will have the chance to meet your coach and other team members at the parent meeting in July. (Please see Events page for parent meeting schedule)  At that time you can work together to come up with days and times that work for your training sessions.  Being that the coach is volunteering his or her time the ultimate training session schedule is up to them!

The game schedule is created after all the teams have been formed and all the teams have coaches.  We have many coaches who coach in more than one division as well as referee for the older divisions, so it is a complicated matter to make sure that all coaches and referees can be at all assigned games.  We try to have the game schedule completed in the first week of August which is also the first week of training sessions.  As soon as the schedule is created it will be posted on this website and on our Facebook page.

How often are practices and games?
Practices are held once a week for 6U and 8U, twice a week for the older divisions. Times will be determined by the coaches.
Games will be on Saturdays with the first game in the beginning of August for most divisions*.
Games and practices will be held at the North Valleys Regional Sports Complex.
Game fields for some in the older divisions may be different due to traveling.

*The final game schedule will be sent to coaches as soon as possible. It will then be posted on our website and Facebook page.

When does the season start and how long does it run?
Opening day is August 1st of each year.  First games begin the 2nd or 3rd week of August, and play into mid October, except Labor Day weekend.  If games are cancelled due to sever weather/smokey conditions, make-up games may be scheduled. Make-up games are not guaranteed.  We do not offer any other season.

Do I need to participate in fundraising?
We are selling beef jerky from Country Meats for $1 per stick. There are 14 different flavors to choose from so everyone should be able to find something they'd like to try.  The jerky is made to order so the sticks will be pretty fresh when they arrive in Reno.

Our goal is to raise $25 per player. Funds raised go towards park fees and allow us to keep registration costs low for early bird registration and our VIP program.

Parents may place their orders with their coach through Thursday, Sept. 7th. Instructions have been emailed to all coaches. 

Fundraising helps keep our registration prices low!

I would like to volunteer.  How do I sign up?
We are an all volunteer, non profit organization and your help is greatly appreciated.  We need coaches and refs but we also need board members, division coordinators, special event coordinators, uniform and equipment managers, etc...  It is very easy and incredibly rewarding to volunteer!

Soccer has limited equipment requirements.
AYSO Region 710 provides:
     -Uniforms (shirt, shorts, and socks)
     -Field equipment, such as goals, nets, and flags
Families provide:
     -Shin guards (mandatory during practice and games; must be completely covered by socks).
     -Regulation soccer shoes, gym shoes, or sneaker (with or without cleats) are permissible in all AYSO competitions, subject to the referee's         approval regarding their safety.
     -It is helpful to have an extra pair of socks for training sessions.

The coaches will have a few soccer balls for training sessions, but if your child can bring his or her own, it makes it easier to train. If you would like to purchase a soccer ball for use at home, please use the following guide:
     6U & U8 Size 3
     10U & 12U Size 4
     15U Size 5

What is the Proper Dress for Players?
-Uniforms, shin guards, and shoes as described above

-Players shall not wear anything that is dangerous to either themselves or other players.

What’s the Board doing?
Immediately after the last registration date, your Region Board begins the process of putting the teams together for the upcoming season. When this is completed, the uniforms will be ordered and the coaches will be notified.  All are welcome at our board meetings.  Please see the calendar details.

When do the coaches get their teams?
Coaches should expect to receive their team rosters at the parent meeting.

When do the players get called?
Teams may begin practice on or after August 1st. The coaches will call the players usually from mid to late July. They will give you all the information you will need in regards to practice times and location. Each coach sets his/her own practice days, time and location.
The practice fields are located at North Valleys Regional Sports Complex.  Finalized field locations will be available when we receive our permits from Washoe County Parks and Recreation. 
You may contact your coach by following the direction listed here.

It’s after July 31st, and my child has not been called. What do I do?
If you registered after July 18th, your child will be placed on a team if space is available.  As soon as your child is placed on a team the coach will be notified and you will be contacted.
You may contact the Coach Admin by emailing [email protected] for more information. 

Can I receive a refund?
All refund requests must be submitted in writing to [email protected] by June 30th.  A refund will be issued as long as it is received before June 30th.  After the June 30th deadline, no refunds will be issued! National AYSO membership fees may not be refunded.

Is late registration available?
Late registration begins on July 18th.  Those interested may register online at www.eayso.org.  Your child will be placed on a team as long as space is available up through August 9th. If no team is available a refund will be issued.

Please Remember…

AYSO is a parent-based volunteer organization established to provide a positive experience for our children. Go to the games. Learn the rules. Above all, be tolerant of the children’s coaches and referees mistakes and weaknesses.  If you would like to help out please contact our volunteer coordinator at [email protected]
