If you are not a current (Fall 2018) AYSO participant, and attending the  select tryouts, please download and fill in the medical release and bring it to your tryout. 

Registration for Spring 2019 programs will open in November.

Note  that we run 3 programs:

Core is our regular recreational & instructional program and open for most payers.

Select is our competitive program (Fall 2018 teams have been formed - contact a coach or select@ayso26.org if you have questions)

VIP is for those whose disabilities make it difficult for them to participate on mainstream teams

Select players do not need to sign up for core (only if you don't make the team).

AYSOU Login Credentials - Volunteers will use their Blue Sombrero Username and Password to log into AYSOU. If this is working on Blue Sombrero, but not working on AYSOU, the volunteer will need to login in to Blue Sombrero, click on their volunteer details, and then click update. 
Additional Volunteer Users - users volunteering outside of the registration system will volunteer his/herself, or add a new user to volunteer.  If the volunteer now becomes an additional user, he/she will want to accept the invite to create a Username/Password on Blue Sombrero to get them access to AYSOU.  Youth Volunteers do not have to accept this additional user invite to move forward.
AYSOU Certifications - Certifications will port over from eAYSO once the user volunteers, based on the system recognizing the volunteer ID.  If the certifications do not port over, there is a mismatch in the ID.
