Registration is open to all children who have turned 4.
We have also joined the rest of the world as mandated by FIFA to change the date which determines which age division your child plays in.
The cut-off date is now January 1st, not August 1st.
Registration Dates, Times and Locations
- Registrations must be done online.
We host a few registration sites in August to assist those that are having registration problems or lack access to computers,
but we do not host any registrations for the spring.
Spring Registration update
February 4: Many of our divisions are filled, BUT we almost always have some kids drop between the fall and spring sessions.
Kids will move, or drop to play baseball/softball or track, or lose interest. So even if a division is full, we frequently do have some openings.
And sometimes we get enough new registrations to add a team.
With the new Blue Sombrero web site, you can register, and if there is not an opening, no payment is required
You can register to place your child in the queue so if an opening develops, you will be registered.
How to register
Register at the new registration web site at http://ayso.bluesombrero.com/region49.
There is a link in the upper corner that states "Register now."
EAYSO no longer is accepting registrations, registrations must be entered into Blue Sombrero.
Step by step instructions from Blue Sombrero
The total fee is $110. The fee is listed as $92.50, but there is now a non-refundable $17.50 fee if you
change your mind and decide not to play. The $92.50+$17.50 gets to $110. This non-refundable portion is new from last year and this is a requirement from National.
Also, the only payment options now are credit card. There is still a multiple child discount.
Registration fees are $110 for the first player from a
family, $105 for the second player, and $100 for each additional player from a
family. The fee covers fall and spring and includes the uniform
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).
AYSO Region 49 would appreciate any donations you would be willing to make above and beyond the registration fees. If we could collect $5 per child, it could really help out tremendously. This can be added at the time you are paying for registration or turned in at the trailer at any time. We would really like to avoid doing fundraising since parents seem to be bombarded with schools, scouts and other organizations starting their fundraising at the beginning of the school. Year. The equipment (goals, corner flags, the trailer, etc.) is in need of repairs. Fundraising money goes towards these repairs. These donations are tax deductible.
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 25 (for 2017). 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 2017 is August 25.
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.)
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.
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.
