SPRING SEASON NEWS & INFORMATION
Spring Soccer Mar 5 thru May 22
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 and spans from March 5 thru May 22 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 was open thru thru Jan 15. After the Jan 15 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 by Jan 15 will receive priority when forming teams. Applications received after Jan 15 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, Viera Ewell by email (firstname.lastname@example.org)
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 Jan15 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 the Feb 3 deadline. All players that submitted applications by the Jan 15 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 Jan 15 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 $100 per player. The Coach is responsible for collecting the fees from each player and submitting the fees (in full) to the Region Treasurer by March 1st. Financial aid for individual players is not available for the Spring League. The Region will pay the team fees directly to Area 1D.
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.
