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.

Registration Q & A
Does everyone get to play?
Everyone Plays. There are no bench warmers in AYSO. Everyone is guaranteed at least half a game; more in most cases.
Buddy Requests: Can I request my child to be on the same team with a friend?
U5, U6, U7, U8: Yes, if possible. U9 - U14: No U16, U19: Yes, with limitations (i.e. the only two GKs in the program will be split to each team). Balanced Teams takes precedence over buddy requests.
Coach Requests: Can I request a certain coach for my child?
U5, U6, U7, U8: Yes, if possible. U9 - U14: No U16, U19: Yes, if possible.
Is there AYSO soccer for high school players?
Yes! We do. In fact, more than half of our U-16 and U-19 players represent local high school soccer teams and some of our U-19 players are college students. The high school soccer season follows the AYSO soccer season. There is no schedule conflict.
My son/daughter has never played soccer before. Can he/she sign up?
Yes! Players must only meet the age requirement of being 4 to 18 years of age on July 31.
My child has a physical handicap and cannot keep up with other kids running. Can he/she still play?
Do you have a program for children with special needs?
Yes, it's called VIP. Sign up at our registration events or contact our VIP coordinator, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can my two kids be on the same team?
If they're within the age range and gender of their division we will put them on the same team.
Is there a soccer program in the summer for U-14 players?
Yes, the Summer program is for divisions U5 - U14.
Do you offer a highly competitive level?
Our Advanced Play program has All Stars, Spring Select and EXTRA. We also partner with the Pacific Soccer Club.
Will my child have fun? He/she has never played soccer before.
If I miss all the registration events, can I still sign up my child?
Continuing registration is available AFTER our registration events. Your child's placement on a team is not guaranteed and you will not receive any discount.
Can I sign up after the season has started?
You can if we still have room and the addition of your child does not upset the team balancing.
Does my child get a trophy for playing?
All U5 - U8 players receive a participation trophy at the end of the fall season. At U9 and above all trophies or medals are earned.
My child can not practice on a certain day, can you accommodate?
The coach selects the day and time of training sessions. (If you coach, you can choose the time.) You can also ask the other parents on your child's team to consider organizing car-pooling.
Can I pay with a credit card? Check?
Yes, and we also accept cash.
Do you offer any discount?
We offer early bird and family discounts at our registration events.
Can I get a refund if my child withdraws from the program?
Please refer to our refund policy.
Can my company be a sponsor?
Sponsorships start as low as $150.00. Please contact our Marketing Director or check our web site.
Is my donation tax deductible?
AYSO is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Your contribution is tax deductible subject to current taxation laws. Please check with your accountant or tax preparer.
I've never played or coached soccer before, can I sign up to be a coach?
Many of our first time coaches and referees have no experience. We will cover the cost for the training.
Can I coach my own child? Grandchild? Niece/nephews? Neighbor?
Yes! Please indicate as such on the player's registration form.
Do you offer training for coaches?
We offer all levels of age appropriate training. Tustin AYSO will pay the cost of the class.
Are the coaches qualified?
All coaches are Safe Haven certified and have age-specific training.
Can I coach two teams? If yes, will the games be scheduled at different times?
We strongly discourage coaches from coaching more than one team. Coaching two teams requires permission from the Regional Coach Administrator. We do not guarantee that the games will be at different times. In most cases, we will encourage you to coach one and be the assistant coach for the other team.
I don’t know anything about soccer. Will you train me to be a referee?
We train you for free and provide you with all the equipment you need to be a successful referee. Good Sportsmanship
