SPRING SEASON NEWS & INFORMATION
Spring Soccer 2017
The Spring program consists of teams from other Regions in Area 1D, including: Hermosa and Manhattan Beach, Redondo Beach, Hawthorne, and Westchester. The season is 10-weeks for boys and girls in the U8 though U19 divisions.
The Area 1D Spring league is a secondary program designed to give players additional opportunities to play soccer throughout the Spring. The primary objective is for players to have fun while they continue to develop good soccer skills and sportsmanship. Placement on a team is not guaranteed and is dependent on several factors, including the number of applicants, number of coaches, and number of teams allowed in the Area league and subject to balanced team formation.
The League will be operated in accordance with the Area 1D Spring Rules & Regulations – coaches should be familiar with these Rules & Regulations. All teams are required to be balanced in accordance with the AYSO core philosophy.
Spring Registration is now open. New this year – register for spring in eayso.org. (Click “sign up for other programs” button in lower left corner of the screen) Registration Deadline is Feb 15. Players submitting applications after the deadline will be placed on a wait list and added to a team if space is available. Divisions will be U8 through U19. Teams will form in early March and the spring season will start March 18. Registration fees are $120 per player for the Spring Program.
After the application deadline, the Spring Program Commissioner will determine the appropriate number of teams to be formed in each Division. The Spring Commissioner will then identify coach candidates for each team. Coaches must be approved by the Regional Coach Administrator and the Regional Commissioner.
Players that have submitted an application before the deadline will receive priority when forming teams. Applications received after the deadline will be consolidated into a wait list in the order they were received. Players may be added to the wait list by contacting the Spring Commissioner.
Registration in eAYSO
All players must be registered in eAYSO.org. Applicants that did not participate in an AYSO Fall program must register in eAYSO and provide proof of birth date to the Registrar in the form of a birth certificate or passport. Applicants that participated in the AYSO Fall season in another Region must request to transfer from that Region into Region 92. The request must be approved by both Regional Commissioners and the Area 1D Director.
Divisions that have enough players to form a single team will be established with all players that have submitted an application by the deadline. Players may be added to the roster from the wait list up to the maximum roster thru Apr 1.
Divisions that have enough players to form more than one team must be balanced. For team balancing, the number of teams in the Division will be finalized by early March. All players that submitted applications by the application deadline will be considered in the player pool. When the number of applicants exceeds the maximum number of roster positions available, priority shall be given to players that participated in the Region 92 Fall program. Subsequent priority shall be based on the date the application was submitted. When coaches are needed for the Division, special consideration may be given to players whose parent or guardian will coach the team. Players that submitted applications after the deadline may be added to the player pool in the order the application was received up to the maximum allowable.
The Region 92 Spring League fee is $120 per player. Financial aid for individual players is not available for the Spring League.
Uniforms & Equipment
A uniform will be provided for each registered player on the team. The Region will also provide an extra “blood” jersey, a limited number of soccer balls, cones, and a first aid kit to each team.
