Tustin is pleased to present the Tustin Soccer Festival, a tournament for All-Star teams.
A special U8 season during All-Stars
As a special program for our U8 players, we have created the U8 Graduation Series. This program is a special season held when the older age groups play All-Stars in January and February. During this season the players will play using U9 rules including larger fields, larger goals, 7v7 teams, goalkeepers and referees. For a full description of the Under-8 Graduation Series please visit our Programs page.
November 17 - 24, U9-U14
The Mayor's Cup brackets and rules have been posted on the Mayor's Cup page.
For teams practicing during the Mayor's Cup: TSP and CT East/West are not available due to games, teams may practice on CT Track. Do not practice beside or behind the goal of a game in progress.
This card costs only $10 and provides discounts to many local businesses. The discounts can be used each time you visit as the card is yours to keep and is valid until August of 2014. To see the discounts offered, view the Tustin AYSO Community Discount Card. For those who live in Orange, you may exchange yours for the Orange Discount Card, many other cities are also available. You may purchase the card through your team parent or individually on the above dates.
Teams may only use assigned fields
During the Mayor's Cup, space is extremely limited and teams are discouraged from conducting practice. No practice may interfere, disrupt, or distract from a Mayor's Cup match; do not practice behind the goal of a match in progress. Fields approved for practice are posted on the Training Fields page. Please confirm that your team is using the appropriate field. This is needed for several reasons, number one is safety: Mixing the ages can easily create an unsafe training environment. For instance, we can not have a U9 team next to a U19 team.

For over 10 years, the Tustin AYSO Soccer Club has provided goalkeeper training to players through TAGA, the Tustin AYSO Goalkeeping Academy. TAGA has become the gold standard for goalkeeper training in Southern California and also provides trainers and demonstration players to many other areas nearly every weekend throughout the summer for special camps and events. TAGA goalkeepers frequently represent their high schools at the Varsity level and nearly all current and former TAGA goalkeepers played for their school. As the academy has expanded, we are long since past the point where TAGA can accept all candidates and offer academy training for all of our goalkeepers. This program will serve the training needs for new goalkeepers, especially in the U9 age group and as a pre-academy training program to help prepare goalkeeper candidates for the full academy, Tustin AYSO Goalkeeping Academy (TAGA).
For more information on TAGA, the Tustin AYSO Goalkeeping Academy, please visit the TAGA Website.

AYSO has been promoting Concussion Awareness training in conjunction with the Center for Disease Control Head's Up program since 2009. Each season, we have at least several reported cases of concussion and many more go unreported as it takes much less impact than commonly believed to have a concussion. For instance, the player being knocked out is not a prerequisite, nor is swelling and a large bump. In an effort to increase awareness about the potential risks associated with concussions, we are asking that all coaches of all ages take a couple of minutes and complete the online training. All coaches are now required to complete the online CDC Concussion training program. To complete the training, please login to the AYSO Online Training website.This training is not restricted to coaches and we encourage all parents to complete the training and become more educated about these risks.
