Registration Eligibility

Registration is open to all children who have turned 4 or who will turn 4 before the start of the season.

Registration Dates, Times and Locations

  • Registrations must be done online. We host a few registration sites in August to meet with people to answer questions or to assist those that are having registration problems or lack access to computers. Those dates are August 3 and August 17 from 9:30 to 12:30 at the Andover public Library.

How to register

Log onto Blue Sombrero. There is a link in the upper corner that states "Register now." For step by step instructions, see the following link from Blue Sombrero

Registration Fees

The total fee is $125. The fee is listed as $105 (which is AYSO49's portion), but there is also a non-refundable $20 fee for National. This fee is non-refundable if you change your mind and decide not to play. This non-refundable portion is new from 2016 and this is a requirement from National. Also, the only payment options now are credit card. There is still a multiple child discount. There is also a discount for 19UB and 19UG that is listed in Blue Sombrero.

Registration fees are $125 for the first player from a family, $120 for the second player, and $115 for each additional player from a family. The fee covers fall and spring and includes the uniform (shirt/shorts/socks).

Registration fees go towards the players uniform, supplemental insurance, National AYSO fees, Area 6U fees (to support training and end of year tournaments), training for your board members (which does include travel), uniforms for referees, end of year trophy and other administrative expenses (coaches and referees).

Registration Deadline

When is the registration deadline? This is a tough question. Technically we don't have a deadline because we are always registering kids, long after the season has started. As long as we have openings, we are registering kids. We have even registered kids in April, after missing the entire fall and over half of the spring.

We form teams based on our numbers that we have on August 24 (for 2019). For example, the age division for 8 & 9 year olds, we have a limit of ten kids per team. If we have 50 kids registered, we could form 5 teams with 10 each, but then we would have zero openings. We always have LOTS of late registrations, so we create the teams with openings, so if we had 50 kids we would probably form 6 teams. Some teams would have 8 kids and some teams would have 9 kids. So then we would have 10 openings.

So the deadline for team formation for fall 2019 is August 23. But in reality, 90% of the time we have openings clear past the start of the season. So technically our registration never ends.

What now? (After I am registered.)

Volunteers

Have you thought about coaching or refereeing? We need you. Training is offered free of charge to you. The sooner that you let us know you are interested, the sooner we can get your training started. ALL volunteers will need to register online (eayso.org). All registrations must be e-signed.


Registration Form

A few things to keep in mind when registering a child for next season:

  • Although the form has fields for height, weight, and child's social security number (on some of the older versions), we do not need any of that information.
  • Insurance - Check the insurance information and make sure the current doctor's name and phone number is listed. Have you changed your insurance carrier?
  • Schools - Indicate the school that your child will be attending next fall. If you are unsure which school your child will be attending, please make your best guess. You may call the AYSO phone number (686-AYSO) in the summer to correct the information.

Player Requests

You may request to play with another player. Write this request on the line 'brother or sister on same team'. Player requests greatly increase the complexity of team balancing - as this is done manually and not by the computer. These guidelines will allow your player request to be considered at the time of team balancing:

  • No request is guaranteed. A balanced team is one of our philosophies.
  • Only one request will be considered. No second or alternatives arc permitted. A brother or a sister is a request. You may request a brother or a friend, but not both.
  • Players must be the same age group.
  • Players must cross-reference each other on their registration form, e.g.: Tom requests Joe, Joe requests Tom.
  • You may not request a coach. All coaches and assistant coaches automatically have their child assigned to their team.

Players on High School teams

Players on high school teams cannot play for both AYSO and their high school team during the same season that they play for their high school team. Kansas State High School Athletic Association rules require you to inform us if your child is playing for this school. Your child's eligibility may be jeopardized if you do not follow this rule. This rule does not apply to intramural soccer or non-KSHSAA schools (such as homeschool teams, Sunrise, Word of Life, etc).

Consequently, during the same season as the high school teams, we typically do not have enough players to field a team, but in the "off-season," we typically do have enough players to field a team. That means that we usually have high school girls teams in the fall and high school boys teams in the spring.

Waiting List

Once teams are full a waiting list will be formed for that age group. New teams will only be formed if enough players in an age group are on the waiting list and a coach is available at least 10 days before the fall coaches meeting.

Notification

You should be called by your coach by two weeks before the start of the season for your child's team assignment. Please do not call AYSO asking for team assignments until then.
