 Registration FAQ

Can my child play soccer in Region 1079?

We accept any and all children possible from age 4 through 18 as of December 31st, 2022.

Since we are a 100% volunteer region we have a limited number of players we can accept. The more coaches that we have sign up the better the chance that everyone plays. 

We do our best to allow as many children as possible, but that can only happen with your help.

We always need additional coaches and referees for each season. The more assistance offered, the more children that can play in a fun, fair, and safe environment. Please sign up to be a referee or coach.

We offer comprehensive training for beginning coaches and referees. We provide you with the basic knowledge to held develop soccer skills and about the laws of the game. All we ask from you is a small time commitment. See the Calendar and Events Page about classes offered and the times and dates.

What is included with the fees to play soccer in Region 1079?

Registration fees cover the uniform (jersey, socks and shorts), trophy, player insurance, a subscription to National "Soccer Now" magazine, and also registers each child with our national office as well as field cost, light cost, referee training, field supplies, City of Mesa fees, etc...

What should we (the parents / guardians) supply?

Shin guards (Mandatory for both practice and all games, they must be worn inside the socks.

Practice ball
Water bottle
All the support you can muster

Shoes can be tennis shoes or they may have cleats, but not Baseball Cleats (those with a toe cleat.) A toe cleat is considered a safety violation. The referee shall not allow a player to participate in a match if the players shoes have a toe cleat. A toe cleat is a single cleat in the front middle of the shoe.

When and where will games be played?

Schedules will be posted as soon as possible. Games start in January and end on February 26th. 

Typically all games will be at Red Mountain Soccer Complex, 905 North Sunvalley Blvd, Mesa, AZ 85207

When are practices?

For the 6U, 8U and 10U age groups, the coach shall decide when and where to hold practices. Typically, there are one to two practices each week and we try to group theses teams as close to your home as possible.

For the 12U and above age groups, practices will be held at the Red Mountain Soccer Complex, 905 North Sunvalley Blvd, Mesa, AZ 85207 Mondays through Thursdays 5:30pm - 9 pm.  Your coach will inform you of what two days and time slot they have chosen.

What are divisions and what do they mean?

There are four divisions defined by the players age group. Boys and Girls play in separate divisions. They are:

16U, 12U, 10U, 8U and 6U.

The U means "under" so the 10U division is comprised of players whose ages are under 10 years old as of the year of registration. Under no circumstances will players be able to "play down" a division (i.e. a child that turns 12 on December 31st of the registration year must play in the 14U bracket). A child may "play up" with the approval of the Regional Commissioner, however these are very rare circumstances and are handled on a case by case basis.
