Registration information

Please read the following instructions carefully. 

AYSO has partnered with Blue Sombrero and is using a new on-line registration web site for players and volunteers. This will require the creation of a new account if you have not registered for our region using Blue Sombrero before and the player and/or volunteer information will need to be entered - the old account and information from eAYSO was not copied over to the new system.

Registration is open for the Fall 2018 season.
The AYSO Nation Organization has several changes that are effective starting with the 2017 fall season. 

The first change is the playing age calculation. AYSO now goes by the birth-year of a player, and is based on the age of the player as of December 31st of the next year. The exception to this rule is any division below the 6U division (more information below).

The second change is how the age divisions are defined and the division names. The age divisions (again, for 6U and above, the age shown reflects their age at the end of the next calendar year) are now:
  • Playground soccer: 3 - 4 years old (must be at least 3 years old by the start of the fall season)
  • 6U: 5 - 6 years old
  • 8U: 7 - 8 years old
  • 10U: 9 - 10 years old
  • 12U: 11 - 12 years old
  • 14U: 13 - 14 years old
  • 16U: 15 - 16 years old
  • 18U: 17 - 18 years old
The registration system will automatically determine the age division for the players.

More information regarding playing age can be found on the National AYSO website here.

AYSO has partnered with Blue Sombrero to handle all registrations (player and volunteer). Account, player and volunteer information was not copied over from the eAYSO system, except for volunteer certifications (training certifications, such as coach training, referee training, board member training, etc.).

The process is:
  1. Preregister online at (you MUST include /ayso256 in the URL in order to have your account associated with our region otherwise your child will be registered in the wrong region and will not appear on our list of registered players). If you don't already have a Blue Sombrero account, you will first need to create one, entering your information. You only need to create an account once.
  2. For Players:
    • You will then enter the information for each of your players (the system calls them participants)
    • Pay the registration fees online
    • Print two copies of the registration application of each player
    • Complete the registration process by bringing the copies of each player's form to one of the on-site registration processing events. A verification of the player's age will also done by looking at their birth certificate - we do not keep a copy, we only use it for age verification
  3. For Volunteers:
    • Click on Volunteer, and the Volunteer Roles
    • Enter the information for the volunteer and select what role(s) they are volunteering for
    • After you have completed and submitted the volunteer form, please go to AYSOU and take the Safe Haven course, which is online. All volunteers must take the Safe Haven course each year (note: the AYSO year goes from August 1st to July 31st) For more information regrading online training, click here. Coaches, assistant coaches and referees must also take the CDC Concussion Awareness training. Unlike Safe Haven, this course only needs to be taken once

PLEASE NOTE: Your player's application will not be fully processed until payment has been received. This means you will not receive emails about open practices or other important dates and information until the application and payment is received

Up through the end of June, $100 ($75 for the Playground division) PLUS your volunteer help gets your player a uniform and up to 10 weeks of play (games and practices!). During July, the registration fee goes up to $125 ($100 for the Playground division). After July the fee is $150 (for all divisions except for Playground).
