Schoolyard Soccer, formerly known as U-5, now becomes a default (Core) division for all Regions. You will no longer be manually updating the age/date calendar for this division on the “Membership Year” screen. The Schoolyard Soccer division will be determined by the age of the player as of July 31, 2016 for Membership Year 2016. On April 1, the Schoolyard Soccer division will default to “off” under your Region – Setup – General settings in eAYSO unless you previously had the Schoolyard Soccer program running. If previously you did not offer the Schoolyard Soccer division, please see the instructions below on how to turn the division on or off.
Registration for 3 year olds for the Playground Soccer division will be available for all Regions on eAYSO starting April 1. The Playground Soccer division will default to “off” for all Regions. Please see the instructions below on how to turn the division “on” if you are planning on running the program. Playground Soccer is volunteer run and very similar to the U.K. International/AYSO Camps “Playtime Adventure.” Please note that Playground Soccer is not soccer games for 3 year olds. It is for the development of Fundamental Motor Skills (FMS) that will lead into future soccer-specific learning. For more information, you can purchase a Playground Soccer manual and equipment bundle through the AYSO Supply Center. A participant must be 3 years of age before acceptance in the Playground Soccer program is permitted. As previously done for the Schoolyard Soccer division, age determination for Playground Soccer will be determined by the date you enter in eAYSO under Region – Setup – Membership Year. If you have any questions or need eAYSO assistance, send us an email.
Please enter the date before your first session. Remember that all participants must be 3 years of age before they can enroll in the Playground Soccer program. Example: If your first session is Saturday October 1, 2016 then you must set the cutoff date for 3 year old players to register as Friday Sept. 30, 2016.
