Age Division Changes

Important Updates this Fall for Age Divisions:
US Soccer has instituted Birth Year registration. AYSO has adopted this starting with the MY2017
membership year (8/1/2017 – 7/31/2018) along with the new Division naming convention ##U verses
U##. (The “U” means under)

What this means to you: All players born between 1/1 and 7/31 will see no change in their progression within the divisions. Those born between 8/1 and 12/31 will move up one “rung” in the division ladder this year only. All that has happened is that the 2-year window we use for most divisions has slid back by 5 months.

For more information see our explanation sheet or details can be found on AYSO’s Site for birth year registration.

May 2017 Interplay Tryouts

We will be forming fall Interplay teams for certain age groups between 2003 and 2008 beginning in June.  Given the majority of these players will have participated in our select program we anticipate giving about 6 weeks off and starting practices in the mid-july time frame.  We do not anticipate adding an additional team for boys and girls at each age level but would like as many participants in tryouts as possible to assess whether their are enough players to form a team.  We will hold the tryouts on the following dates with time and location noted.
We anticipate each of these teams competing in the Bay Area Fall Soccer League which is comprised of local AYSO Regions including Concord, MDSA and Walnut Creek and Eclipse Soccer Club.  For more information on Interplay – please see the Interplay page on our website:  http://www.phmsa.org/programs/interplay-season/

Silent Saturdays are coming! September 24 is our first one of the season.

What does that mean? Silent Saturday is designed to give the players an opportunity to play a game in a quiet, peaceful environment. This includes ANY coaching from coaches and especially the sideline for U10 and up. U6 and U8 parents are asked not to coach or cheer. You can make a game strategy up and give your players their location on the field then sit back and enjoy the game.

Support your team on Silent Saturday in a creative way! Have your parents and families wear your team colors, bring rally towels, make banners – sign – flags with players names on them. Just no noise. Get siblings involved! Get together and make a plan as a team on how you’ll encourage and support your players and team on the two Silent Saturdays this season.
Silent Saturday is for everyone – including our kids and parents. If you think you are going to have a hard time keeping your sideline quiet, bring a bag of suckers and hand one to every person on the sideline BEFORE the game. Let them know this is to help them if they start feeling the urge to scream, pop that sucker in their mouth! It’s a light hearted reminder that everyone needs to be quiet for one game.
This link from another AYSO region is a good read and explains the process perfectly. Please take a moment to read it through. Silent Saturday – Coach Advice
