Note: A copy of your AYSO registration form is required. Kids will not be permitted to play without a signed form.
Palo Alto AYSO will again be providing an opportunity for kids to play soccer this summer on Saturday mornings from 10-12 am. Soccerfest is intended to provide a safe environment for kids to come together and play soccer. No coaching, refereeing or spectators shouting from the sidelines.
AYSO provides the fields, pinnies, cones, balls and Safe Haven certified monitors. The kids choose up teams for pick up games and provide the fun.
There will be two games: one for U12 players and one for U14 and older. In addition, if there are an equal number of boys and girls at the younger age then we will have a boys-only and and a girls-only game.
