Recreational Programs


Core Program

AYSO Region 1079's Core program is designed to allow kids ages 4 to 18 years old a chance to play soccer on fair and balanced teams with all players provided a guaranteed amount of playing time in every game. It is also a great chance for parents to volunteer and help support their kids.

  • Players must wear shin guards during practices and games.
  • Cleats are not required but highly recommended.
  • If they would like to bring their own ball please make sure it's the correct size
  • 6U / 8U: Size 3 ball
  • 10U / 12U: Size 4 ball
  • 14U and Up: Size 5 ball

Although it is our desire to include every child who wishes to play soccer, as a practical matter registration is only available on a first come, first served basis. Many factors can contribute to limiting registration within any division, including but not limited to: the number of volunteers and availability of game and practice fields. Once a division has been filled, a waiting list is created from which players may be placed on a team if another player drops or additional coaches are secured.

In an attempt to balance teams correctly, we cannot accept requests for your child to be with specific coaches, or children to be placed on same teams as other children. Only the coach's own children, and siblings within the same division are guaranteed to be on same team.

Registration Includes:

  • A quality uniform consisting of a jersey, shorts, and socks

  • Games in the Winter or Fall (games cancelled due to inclement weather might not be rescheduled. Games will be played in the heat & in the rain unless closed by the City. Game cancellation will be considered if extreme heat is present or if lightning is seen)

  • A trophy or medal

  • Qualifying 10U though 14U teams may participate in our Area Playoffs in November (See below for more information beginning Fall 2021).

  • Secondary Accident Insurance through the AYSO National organization.

*Coaches may sign up to be a HEAD Coach for a Maximum of 2 teams.*

Additional teams they may be selected as head coach but only if there are not enough head coach volunteers for those divisions.  This will allow other parents the opportunity to coach their own child and prevent coaches from conflicting game schedules. 

You may also elect to be an ASSISTANT Coach for the 3rd or additional teams.

Fall  Core Season Tournament

(Beginning 2021)

An end of season fall tournament will be held at the end or regular season play in a single round elimination format for all teams which quality with a minimum number of 10 points for the season, of which 5 must be referee points for U10 division and above.  Teams will be self reporting points throughout the season to the Regional Commissioner or Coach Administrator.

Teams which do not report their points correctly or do not meet the minimum 10 points required will not be enrolled into the end of season tournament.

2021 Fall Point System

To participate in the end of season single elimination round tournament, teams must quality with a minimum number of Volunteer Points (VPs).  For the inaugural 2021 season the minimum number per team is 10 points to qualify for the tournament.  

The purpose of our Volunteer Point System (VPS) is to have more people chipping in with smaller tasks, rather than having just a few volunteers trying to manage everything alone.  Your team's volunteer participation can earn playoff eligibility!   Teams which do not correctly report the points or earn the minimum number of 10 points will not be able to participate in the tournament.

Volunteer Point System (VPS)

  •   A volunteer earns 1 point for each team they are associated with.
  •   Multiple volunteers per family is acceptable, allowing multiple points earned per family.
  •   Volunteer points cannot be donated.
  •   It is up to each team to report all volunteers.
  •   Points can be attained through the following:
  •   Being a center or sideline referee during a game (becoming a certified center ref = 2 points)
  •   Manning 1 tent shift at the field entrance
  •   Being a coach or assistant coach (becoming a certified coach = 2 points)
  •   Filing an unfilled board position  (see list under Volunteers tab)
