Additional details about the tryouts

Players are required to attend at least one tryout, but are strongly encouraged to attend as many as possible.

Our goal is to have teams formed and an initial communication to selected players prior to Thanksgiving.

Practices will start in January, and teams will practice twice a week.

The season will run through Memorial Day Weekend in May, and games could go in to the first week of June.

Teams will play in a Select league against other AYSO regions with games on weekends throughout the Bay Area.

Game locations could include Concord, Walnut Creek, Davis, Manteca, American Canyon, Antelope as well as other locations.

Teams will be expected to play in up to 5 tournaments, which could include:
   President’s Cup – February 9-10 – San Jose/Sunnyvale
   PHMSA Soccerfest – March – Pleasant Hill/Martinez
   Comstock Shootout – April – Carson City, Nevada
   Pacifica Fog Classic – May – Pacifica
   Concord Cup – May – Concord
   Davis World Cup – Memorial Day Weekend (May) – Davis

Cost has not been finalized yet, but should be in the range of $450-$500.  This includes uniforms (2 full sets plus a warmup jacket), tournament entry fees, player insurance, field rental cost as well as league registration fees.

The Spring Select program requires a higher level of commitment from both players and families than what is expected in the Fall Core season. 

All eligible players (10U and up) are encouraged to apply. Please note that to be eligible for the Select program a player must be enrolled in the current fall season or primary program and must have participated in at least 50% of their fall team games. Players can only participate in Select in the same division played in the prior fall season.

Program Details

2019 Spring Select Tryout Registration is now open.

This tryout based program is intended to give the top players from Fall Core a chance to continue to develop their skill against other top level players throughout the Bay Area.  Teams generally practice twice a week and play games on the weekends.  Some travel is involved in this program as games are played throughout the Bay Area and tournaments are played in locations such as San Jose, Davis and Carson City, NV.

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 2019.  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.
