ABOUT AYSO SELECT

The AYSO Select program is an opportunity for interested, enthusiastic and motivated players to improve their skills in a more competitive environment while still following the Six Philosophies of AYSO (Everyone Plays, Balanced Teams, Open Registration, Positive Coaching, Good Sportsmanship and Player Development). By providing a more competitive program for our 10U through 14U players, the intention to provide an environment to develop to a level not always possible through the Fall Core program.

Participation on the teams requires an increased level of commitment from both the players and parents. To enable player development, players are expected to regularly attend practices and games and display a sense of responsibility towards the coaches and their teammates.

The Select program game schedule runs from January through May/June with teams will participating in a Select Spring league and tournament play. Some games involve travel and tournaments can include Sunday games. Suggested tournaments may include Pleasant Hill/Martinez, Concord, Pacifica and the Comstock Shootout in Carson City, NV. Comstock is a premier tournament and is usually the highlight of the Select season for many teams!

2022 Spring Select Tryout Registration is now open.


AYSO follows US Soccer’s Birth Year registration, and Division naming convention ##U versus U##. The "U" means "Under" and the ## is aligned to the age the players will be by the end of 2022.  So rather than being U10 (Under 10), players will now be 10U ("10 and Under"). Please refer to the Age Guide below to determine your child's Division for the upcoming season.
