ALL DIVISIONS

Siblings in the same division may be placed together on the same team. Since it is not always clear which children are siblings,
it is important for parents of siblings to request that the siblings be placed together by submitting a Sibling Form.
Siblings include brothers, sisters, half-brothers, half-sisters, step-brothers and step-sisters playing in the same division. Cousins are not siblings.

No “playing up” or “playing down” (playing outside your age group) is permitted for the purpose of buddying.

U19, U16, U14, U12, U10, U8, AND U6 DIVISIONS

While friends may randomly end up on the same team, special requests to play on the same team with a friend will not be honored. The only exception is for siblings in the same division. We cannot honor “buddy requests” since we strive for Balanced Teams, one of AYSO’s Six Philosophies.

In these divisions, players are assigned to teams by a computer algorithm designed to balance teams in terms of ability, age, and experience as far as possible.

U5 DIVISION

The U5 Division is the concept introduced by the National League to incorporate a program for 4-5 year old children interested in learning about soccer. Our Program here in PHMSA is to introduce AYSO recreational youth soccer to 4-5 year olds and parents in a fun, interactive, and safe environment which we call “Preschool United”. This Age Division is identical in all aspects to other Age Divisions U6-U19 with the exception that no permanent teams are formed. All players receive a uniform, participate in Picture Day, and receive an trophy at our end of season festival.

Like all of AYSO, Division Staff is composed of Volunteers (1 Coordinator, 2 or More Volunteer Coaches per Session, and 4 Session Coordinators. The Division is split into Four 1 hour Training Sessions on Sunday which are run by our Volunteer Coaches in Partnership with Professional Coaches from UK Soccer Camps, and composed of approx. 35-40. Each training comprises a 20 minute section on basic skills, comprising a drill performed by the players, and an interactive drill with players and a parent. At the end of each session the players will be sorted into teams and will play a short sided game.

Player Expectations:

  1. Wear Uniform (Jersey, Shorts, Socks, Shinguards, Appropriate Shoes (cleats are optional).
  2. Bring ball (Each player who is registered in the U5 Division will be provided a ball which they can keep, please allow your child to decorate their ball to make it unique) to every Training Session.
  3. Bring water to every Every Training Session.
  4. Be Safe, Have Fun!

Parent Expectations:

  1. Be on time.
  2. Come prepared (physically, mentally, and appropriately dressed) to learn and play with your child.
  3. Project a positive attitude toward everyone.
  4. Cheer every child as if they are your own.

Any Questions can be answered by contacting the U5 Division Coordinator at u5@phmsa.org

FAQs:

  1. When will the season start?
    Except for the U5 Division, we hope to have coaches assigned to teams by early June. Coaches will then contact players on their team to schedule a team meeting. Teams begin practicing for the Fall Season on August 1st. Games typically began on the Saturday after Labor Day and continue until mid-November. Teams in the Under-10 and older divisions may have play-off games after the regular season.U5 practices are jamboree style Sundays.
  2. Where are practices?
    Practices are usually held on week nights or on the weekend during the day before the season begins. The times and locations for practices are not generally available until July. The league cannot assign practice times until we receive field permits from the school districts and city park departments. The coaches will then work with their age division directors to find a practice time that works for them.
  3. My child has decided not to play or can’t play, how do I get a refund?
    All refund requests must be submitted in writing. The form can be downloaded from www.phmsa.org/forms
    a. Refund form submitted on or before July 31st
    100% refund (except for $50 late fee if registration sent after May 7th)
