AYSO is open to any child that wishes to play soccer. No experience is required!
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.
What if my child is too old to join?

Older kids should consider our neighboring AYSO region in West San Jose (

Why do we need to volunteer if we pay for the season?
AYSO is 100% 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.
Do I need proof of age for my child to join a program?
Yes, but only for players brand new to AYSO. Bring a copy of a document showing proof of age (passport, birth certificate, etc.) to an in-person registration event or to Orientation.
What is the refund policy?
See Refund Policy listed separately under the Registration section of this website.

Why do we play small-sided soccer?
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.
