Producer Handbook



This Handbook is a planning guide for the Spring Select Producer.  It explains the major steps required to produce the Spring Select Program and provides a checklist to ensure nothing is missed.
The Spring Select Producer is responsible to appoint the Spring Select Coaches and ensure the steps are undertaken to form the teams, reset the Spring Select online tools, and ensure the coaches are complying with the program procedures.  The Producer may enlist the help of the webmaster and others in accomplishing these tasks.

Spring Select Program Agenda

  • Preliminary
    • as the Fall Program is concluding, begin appointing coaches to the Spring Select teams
    • with the help of field_permits@ayso26.org, organize field slots to conduct tryouts during December
    • ensure coaches organize tryouts and select players
    • ensure sufficient coaches are recruited
    • as you appoint each coach, notify the webmaster@ayso26.org to help the coach get going with access to his ayso26.org account
    • inform the coach about the Spring Select Coach Admin Handbook
    • Confirm the coach is online with his email by sending him a test email to his Spring Select address
    • choose dates for final roster, fee collection and coach's meeting.  The coach's meeting should be roughly mid-January, and the final roster and fee collection must be completed prior to that, so that the players cards can be distributed at the coach's meeting
    • book the Chicago Pizza for the coaches meeting
    • move the events in the Regional Calendar for each of these three milestones from the previous year.  These events already have an explanation and will issue invitations and reminders to the coaches for the current year once you move the date of the event
  • eAYSO Setup
    • ensure program and teams are created in eAYSO, assign the coaches to their teams
    • get player roster from coach and assign the players to the teams
    • if player is from another region, contact rc@ayso26.org to effect a temporary transfer of the player's record from the other region

Team Setup in eAYSO

The Spring Select Program and the Team Template will be created in eAYSO for you.  You need to edit the team to add your players and enter the information about your team.

    2. On the left, set Program From to "Primary" and set Division and Gender to the players you are selecting.
    3. On the right, set Program To to "Spring Select" set Division and Gender.
    4. For the players on the left that you want to move over to the Spring Select program, check the box under the checkmark for the list on the left, and then click the single right arrow ">" (don't use the ">>" or all of the players will be copied).  Note that the list may be longer than one page and you will see multiple page links at the bottom of the page.  Do not move between pages without moving your selected players first.  When you move to another page the system loses your checkmarks.
