Fall 2017 News

Fall 2017 season sign-ups
We are starting the sign-ups for the fall season a little earlier this year. This will allow us to start forming the teams the beginning of August, providing more practice time before the start of the season. Full details of the season can be found by clicking here. We have scheduled more in-person registration events this year due to the new registration process and web site (see schedule below).

Only online registration forms are accepted - hand-written registration forms are no longer accepted by the National AYSO organization. Log in to (link to be provided to the new on-line registration site) to preregister. Complete the online registration application, print a copy and bring with you to one of the registration processing events. The new on-line registration system allows for on-line payments. If you chose to pay at one of our on-site registration events, we are only accepting cash and credit/debit cards so please do not show up with checks. Regular registration fee is $100 per player, late registration fee is $125.00 per player and very late registration fee is $150 per player. Late registration is any registration in August. Very late registration is any registration after August.

Though they did not place, our U10B-02 team, Black Mambas, and our U12B-02 team, Black Dragons, played their hearts out and both lost in the quarter finals to the teams that went on to take 1st place in their respective divisions.
