Spring 2020 Academy and Select Season

AYSO Region 159 will offer an enhanced Academy Development Training program for 5U through 8U players and Spring Select (limited regular playing circuits for 10U and older).

Spring Academy Development Program:

Registration: October 21, 2019 - February 28th, 2020

: $100 per player

: March 7 - May 16 *No scrimmages are played on March 21(AYSO Expo) and April 11 (Easter / Spring Break)


The Academy Development Training is designed specifically to enhance player development with professionally staffed training sessions followed by small-sided games. This academy skill development program is not just for the skill development of our kids, but it is also for the coaches, too. From the beginning, AYSO was built on its five tenants: Everybody Plays, Balanced Teams, Open Registration, Positive Coaching, and Good Sportsmanship. A sixth tenant was added -Player Development- which is really what this Academy Development Program is all about. In order to have player development, you need to also have coach development. That is why the academy style program works so well for everyone.

Spring Select Program:

Registration: October 21, 2019 - January 19, 2020

Cost: $125 per player

Team Formation: Late January / Early February

Practice: Starts February 10, 2020

Season: March 7 - May 16
*No games are played in our Region 159 on March 21 (AYSO Expo)
*No games are played in the entire Area E Circuit April 11 (Easter / Spring Break)


Our traditional SPRING SELECT play is where the certified coach “selects” players for their team; they will have a maximum of two (2) practice sessions during the week and then one (1) game on Saturday. If enough teams are created in each division (10U, 12U, 14U), there will be an in-Region gaming circuit that will be considered as the same skill level as the Fall program.

In the event there are not enough teams created to play in-Region, then teams that are formed will be assigned to play in a gaming circuit against other teams in Area E, comprised of surrounding Regions (Cerritos, Cypress, Garden Grove, Whittier, La Habra, Long Beach) & possibly surrounding Areas (Z, Q, L, etc) that may be considered as the skill level of All-Star and above. As always, attempts will be made to place all players who express an interest in playing Spring Select; however, limitations due to availability of certified coaches, certified referees, other required parent volunteers, and fields may result in some players not being selected or placed on a team.

Remember that filling out the Spring Select Soccer form does not guarantee placement on a team; it only places your child on the selection list for certified coaches to select from to play on their Spring Select team. The Region will only be able to place those players for which there are coaches willing to coach teams & referees willing to support that team.

Priority team placement will be given to players whose parents / guardians / grandparents / uncles / aunts, etc. are registered and certified coaches or badged referees (who were ACTIVE in matches from the Fall).  Those adult volunteers of players, who are given priority due to volunteering, agree to volunteer in their stated area for the entire Spring season. Again, not all players who submit their form may be selected for a team.
