Fall 2021 Recreational Soccer Registration

Dear AYSA Soccer families,

AYSA is excited to announce that we have opened registration for our fall recreational soccer program! You can find information on the schedule and registration by following this link: https://clubs.bluesombrero.com/Default.aspx?tabid=537042

The soccer season will begin on Saturday, September 11, so please mark your calendars.

Please also note that this season we are offering at $10 early registration discount for those who register before August 27th. Early registration helps us plan our programs and get equipment ordered in time, so please take advantage of the discount while you can. Further discounts are also available for families on reduced or free lunch school programs. More information on these programs can be found at the above link.

We look forward to welcoming you all back to soccer this fall!

AYSA President

Tryouts will be held at Plumbrook Recreation Area at the dates and times listed for each age group and gender on the registration page. There is no fee for the tryout, but you must register so that we have your information. Walk-ons will not be accepted.
