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 during 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 15 - 23, U10-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.

Hank Nunez is a lifetime supporter of Tustin AYSO and has volunteered in many capacities including as the Regional Commissioner from 1996 - 2002. During this time, the region grew from 1,000 players to over 2,200. He was instrumental in building relations with the city and school district and continued to assist in that role for many years after stepping down from the RC position, including serving as a member of the Tustin city planning commission. Tustin AYSO would not be the region it currently is without his hard work and countless hours.
Recently, he suffered a stroke and is now in recovery. His family have created a fund to assist with the medical bills. If you are able to assist, please visit http://gofundme.com/5qdyv0.
Several AYSO parents have reported their automobiles being broken into while attending games. These occurances have occured at multiple fields. Please remember to lock your car and remove or keep valuables out of sight.
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.
