Our Mission Statement
1422 is located in Laguna Hills, California and serves the communities
of Laguna Hills and adjoining areas in South Orange County. As part
of the American Youth Soccer Organization, our mission is to provide quality
youth soccer programs which promote a fun, family environment based on
AYSO's Six Philosophies. The Region is for children ages 4 through 19
(U5 –U19) and is a part of AYSO
Area 11-L (South Orange County), and of AYSO
Section 11 (Southern California). AYSO Region 1422 is a non-profit,
are a few of the benefits of playing AYSO Soccer in Region 1422:
- Emphasis on player
and child development
- Play on the best
fields in Laguna Hills
- No referee fees
goal keeper training at no additional cost
- Fall, Spring
and Extra programs
Our program’s goal is for kids to play soccer—so we mandate that every
player on every team must play at least half of every game.
Each year we form new teams as evenly balanced as possible—because
it is fair and more fun when teams of equal ability play.
Our program is open to all children between 4 and 19 years of age
who want to register and play soccer. Interest and enthusiasm are
the only criteria for playing.
Encouragement of player effort provides for greater enjoyment by the
players and ultimately leads to better-skilled and better-motivated
We strive to create a positive environment based on mutual respect
rather than a win-at-all-costs attitude, and our program is designed
to instill good sportsmanship in every facet of AYSO.
We believe that all players should be able to develop their soccer
skills and knowledge to the best of their abilities, both individually
and as members of a team, in order to maximize their enjoyment of
Policies and Procedures
follows the Policies and Procedures of AYSO Area 11L (and AYSO National
Guidelines) with the following exceptions:
be played on Saturday’s beginning in September through the middle of November.
Should your child be on the Regional Champ’s team (U10-U14), they will
continue to play at the Area and Sectional level through December and
possibly into January. Games may be scheduled as early as 8:00 AM
on Saturday and will run all day until dark. If your child is on
an older team (U14 and above) they will have some Sunday games.
This is done to make sure we are finished with our season before the deadline
for high school and CIF so our children can do both AYSO and high
school soccer. Games will be scheduled for both Saturday
and Sunday during play-off’s so we can determine the Regional winners
to send on to Area play (mid to late November). Games will be played
at our local elementary schools, and Community Center.
are held during the week at our local parks, elementary schools, the Community
Center, and the high school. Times will vary depending on availability
and number of teams.

What's the Board doing?
Shortly following the last registration date, your
board begins the process of putting the teams together for the upcoming
season. When this is completed, the uniforms will be ordered and the coaches
will be notified.
When do the coaches get their teams?
Coaches should expect to receive their team rosters in Early August, at
the coaches meeting.
When do the players get called?
Teams may begin practice on or after August 15.
The coaches will call the players usually from early to mid August. They
will give you all the information you will need in regards to practice
times and location. Each coach sets his/her own practice days, time and
location and usually calls for a team meeting before the first practice.
The practice fields are located throughout our community.
It’s after August 15 and my child has not been called. What do I do?
Please do not panic if you see teams
practicing and your child has not been called. Not all teams begin practice
at the same time. The very young teams, in particular, do not always begin
practice on August 15. Also some coaches may be out of town. If your child
has not been called by August 22, please email your Division Manager
for your division.
What else does my child need?
The registration fee includes: complete uniform (jersey, shorts,
and socks), supplemental accident insurance, and team and individual pictures.
In addition, players are required to wear shin-guards at all practices
and games. You may also need to obtain shoes (preferably soccer cleats),
a soccer ball (size depends on age) and a water bottle.
How often are practices and games?
Practices are held twice a week (field
and times to be determined by your child’s coach). Games will be on Saturdays
with the first game on the first weekend after school starts. Games and
practices will be held on fields
in Laguna Hills.
AYSO is a parent-based all volunteer
organization established to provide a positive experience for our children.
Go to the games. Learn the rules. Above all, be tolerant of the children’s
coaches and referees mistakes and weaknesses. Volunteer and get involved!
