What will be the format of the season?
It is our intent at this juncture to return to the format of our regular fall season, which will  include the formation of teams based on birth year, with practices starting in August and games starting in September and running through mid-November.

What age group will my child be placed in?
AYSO structures teams and age groups based on birth year.  The team formations will be as follows:

School Yard – Birth Year 2018 and 2017
U6 – birth year 2016
U8 – birth years 2015 and 2014
U10 – birth years 2013 and 2012
U12 – north years 2011 and 2010
U14 – birth years 2009 and 2008
U19/U16 - birth years 2007, 2006, 2005, 2004 and 2003

How much does the 2021 Fall Session cost?
The cost for the season will be $167.50.  The fee breakdown is as follows:
     -  PHSMA Registration Fee - $145:  Covers the shared cost of the league, including uniforms, field costs, awards, coach/referee training, insurance and equipment
     -  AYSO National Fees - $20:  Fee charged by AYSO for each player every year.  This fee is nonrefundable
     -  Credit Card processing fee - $2.50

When will the season start?
Practices will start in August, with a weeknight and weekend practice.  Games will start in September after Labor Day and run through mid-November based on age group.  All games will be played on Saturdays.  Weekend practices will stop once games commence.  Your team coach will communicate your practice schedule in late July and game schedules will be released in early September.

Where will games / practices take place?
All games and practices will be held at various schools and parks in Pleasant Hill and Martinez

Can I request specific dates, times and locations for practices?
Not....with 750-1000 kids in the program, we can not accommodate individual scheduling requests.

Can I make a buddy request?

No, buddy requests will not be allowed.  The only exceptions will be coaches and siblings.

What is your refund policy?
Registration fees ($145) will be refunded in full for all requests made before 8/1/21.  1/2 of registration fees ($72.50) will be refunded if requested between 8/1/21 and 9/1/21.  No refunds will be give for any requests made after 9/1/21.

How do I register?
You need to access your account at and follow registration instructions

What gear does my child need?
Your child should have soccer cleats and shin guards. A team uniform, including a jersey, shorts and socks will be provided.

How can I volunteer?
You can register to be a volunteer coach, referee or countless other positions during the registration process.  We absolutely need as many coach/referee volunteers as possible to ensure we can put on a meaningful program for all players.  We also have openings on our board of directors for a variety of positions.  If interested, please email [email protected]

What will the safety protocols be?
PHMSA and our BOD will actively monitor updated guidance issued by both the CDC and Contra Costa County, and provide explicit guidelines prior to the start of practices and games.  At this juncture we will not be requiring players to wear masks during training sessions or games, but do expect all spectators to do so.  We will always error on the side of caution as the safety of our players, coaches and referees will continue to be our #1 priority.
