Welcome to the website of North Monterey County AYSO soccer, a non-profit organization, which is part of the National AYSO organization.

AYSO Region 256 is pleased to announce receipt of a $5,000 grant from Pacific Gas and Electric Company that was awarded to our VIP program for special needs players.  Their award letter noted that our “organization’s success in providing opportunities for children with special needs access to soccer through the AYSO VIP program is a great example of community-based teamwork." 

Welcome to AYSO Soccer for the 2016/2017 Season

Summer 2017 News
Summer Soccer Camp:
The British Are Coming! The British Are Coming!

This summer we are partnering with Challenger Sports to offer a one-week soccer camp in July. More information can be found here.

New website and online registration process:
We will be significantly updating our website during the spring and summer of 2017. In addition, the registration process will be changing and making your registration payment online will be a new option. Stay tuned for more information.

Fall 2016 News

Our U12B division is full. You can still register online (see instructions) and your child will be put on a wait-list. Players can drop, so it is possible that a spot will become open.

Schedule information can be found in the Fall 2016 Season section of our website.

Fall 2016 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.

Only online registration forms are accepted - hand-written registration forms are no longer accepted by the National AYSO organization. Log in to  www.eayso.org to preregister. Complete the online registration application, print two copies and bring with you to one of the registration processing events. You must also sign the copies of the Concussion Awareness forms that are printed with the registration forms. We are only accepting cash and credit/debit cards this year so please do not show up with checks. Early registration fee is $100, late registration fee is $125.00 per player. Late registration is any registration after July.

For more information regarding online preregistration, including issues with using Apple devices for eSignatures or other registration issues, adding an eSignature to an already-submitted form, registering a returning player when using eAYSO for the first time, and printing tips, click here.

Fall 2015 Summary
Congratulations to our U10 - U14 teams on their performance at the 2015 Area 2J tournament. Five of the seven teams we had at the tournament placed:
  • U10G-03 Earthquakes: 1st place and advance to the  Section 2 tournament on December 12 - 13 in Foster City
  • U10G-02 Pink Panthers: 3rd place
  • U12G-01 Purple Xplosion: 2nd place and advance to the Section 2 tournament on December 12 - 13 in Foster City
  • U14G-01 Terminators: 2nd place
  • U14B-01 Wolf Pack, 2nd place
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.

Good job everyone!!! Best of luck to our U10G-03 Earthquakes and U12G-01 Purple Xplosion at the Section 2 tournament.
