AYSO Region 1631 - Downtown San Jose

Welcome to AYSO Region 1631


Our Region is built of wonderful Downtown Families (and nearby neighborhoods) of San Jose. Our games and practices are in parks and schools in the city of San Jose, mainly in the downtown area. Backesto Park and/or Watson Park are usually our home fields. Believe us, you want to be part of our Downtown AYSO Region. Each season we have an amazing community of 200+ players and their families who volunteer to make our season successful.

No Programs are Currently Displayed

There are no programs or divisions available at the moment. Please contact your club administrator with any questions.



How are teams formed?
Teams are first formed by assigning the Head Coach, Assistant Coach, Referee, Team Manager, and Board Member volunteers and their associated players. Then we try to match your player with a team that meets your coach, teammate, and schedule requests, but this is not guaranteed. Remember: Practice Schedules are dependent on the Volunteer Head Coach and field availability.

Do you need volunteers?
Every family volunteers each season to make our program run smoothly and keep our program affordable for downtown SJ families! AYSO is a 100% volunteer-run organization. It only takes a few hours to become qualified as an introductory-level coach or referee. Most volunteer roles take only a few hours per month or less. You will be able to sign up for a volunteer role during registration or afterward. The following volunteer roles require a background check, which AYSO pays for at no cost to the volunteer: Head Coach, Referee, Board Member, Assistant Coach, and Team Manager.

Do volunteers receive a discount?
Volunteers who successfully completed certain roles in the previous season will receive discounted registration for this season. This includes completed background checks, fingerprinting, training, and certifications. Referees must have assigned themselves games using Arbiter. Head Coach and Referee (who officiated 10 games) discount is $100. Assistant Coach, Team Manager,  and Referee (who officiated 5 games) discount is $50. 

Why join the waitlist?

Joining the waitlist is free. If spots become available in your division, you will be notified via email. Downtown San Jose AYSO is growing and being on our waitlist helps us plan for the coming seasons. 

How do I move to the front of the waitlist?
It’s easy - have an adult volunteer as a Head Coach. It's easy to coach, you need no experience. AYSO has developed special training to help volunteers who may have little or no soccer experience quickly gain the age-appropriate knowledge and skills they need to become outstanding coaches. Plus you’ll have great support from our Head Coach Administrator during the season.


What does the registration costs cover?
All registration fees cover the player's uniform, photos, and medal, plus our field permits, coach/ref equipment, volunteer training, insurance, and more. AYSO is a non-profit, volunteer-run organization. Refund Policy: The non-refundable portion of each player's registration fee is $22.75 for all programs. The refund will be total amount paid minus $22.75, if the request is received before noon Friday March 10, 2023. To request a refund, send an email to [email protected] The refund will be made to the credit card that was used to pay the registration fee. No refunds after 12 noon on March 10, 2023.

Is any financial assistance available?
