Parent FAQs

How much does a season cost?
Current rates are $105 for 5U and 6U divisions, and $120 for all other divisions. This includes a uniform, photos, and a medal. AYSO is a non-profit organization and our volunteers work hard to keep soccer affordable for downtown San Jose families.
 
What if my child has never played soccer before?
AYSO is open to any child that wishes to play soccer. No experience is required!

Why do we need to volunteer if we pay for the season?
AYSO is entirely volunteer-run, with over 90,000 volunteers across the US. Registration fees pay for uniforms, photos, medals, insurance, field permits, equipment, and coach/referee training. Volunteers keep registration costs low by helping coach, referee, line fields, manage equipment, and plan special events. We also raise funds to provide a financial aid program for families that need extra support.
 
Are the teams coed?
We do not have coed teams, with the exception that some warm-up activities at the 5U level may include both boys and girls.
 
Where are the practices and games played?

Each season we have to negotiate field space with the City of San Jose and with all the other youth sports leagues that need field space. Because of this, practice and game locations may change from season to season, although they are all in downtown San Jose. Head coaches will notify players of the team's practice locations and schedules at the beginning of the season. Please note that for older age divisions (10U and up) game schedules are often not finalized until the first week of the season (sometimes later) because we interlock with neighboring regions and it takes a lot of time to schedule all of the games. Thank you for your patience!
 
Why do the teams have so few players on the field at once?
The AYSO philosophy is that kids learn to play soccer by getting more time on the field and more touches on the ball. At this age, larger teams tend to have one or two players that dominate ball possession. Smaller teams help all players get enough experience to develop their soccer skills more quickly. Team sizes for AYSO games are as follows: 8U games are 4 v 4; 10U games are 7 v 7; 12U games are 9 v 9. We do not currently have a 14U age division but those games are 11 v 11.
