All Star Selection Policy
Regional policy on selection of All Stars in the U10, U12, and U14 Divisions.
The purpose of this policy is to establish guidance and procedures for cases where a Region 92 player may wish to move-up to a Division above of his or her age group. The standard within Region 92 is that players are assigned to the Division established for their age group. “League Age” in each division is determined by the birth date of the player as of July 31.
Player Ratings Policy
The purpose of rating players is to evaluate their overall soccer ability in order to assemble balanced teams (one of the six AYSO philosophies). Although a player’s physical attributes and coordination will change between soccer seasons, an honest assessment of each player’s current ability is critical to maintain the integrity of the team formation process.
Short-Sided Games Policy
The purpose of this policy is to establish guidance for team formation and implementation of age appropriate short-sided games. AYSO highly recommends age appropriate small-sided games for younger children to allow more touches on the ball and to foster a more successful soccer learning environment.
Team Formation Policy
The purpose of this policy is to provide guidance for balanced team formation to support the AYSO Balanced Teams philosophy. This policy applies to the U10, U12, and U14 divisions in the primary (Fall) season. Team formation is the responsibility of the Division Commissioner, under the supervision of the Program Commissioner and the Coach Administrator.
Guidance on Sportsmanship
In order to establish consistency in awarding Sportsmanship Points in U10, U12, and U14 matches in the Region, Referees shall utilize the following set of guidelines. The decision on deductions rests with the judgement of the Referee.
