General Info - FAQ's

What is All Stars?

All Stars is a voluntary secondary program offered by Region 1610. The program provides an extended soccer season for those who do not have a conflicting commitment. Teams compete within AYSO Section 10/Area Q in Central California and throughout the State.  There is an additional fee and additional requirements for players and their families who wish to participate.

Who can come out to the player evaluation days?

All eligible players may participate in the player evaluation days.  An eligible player will have played in at least 50% of the regular season games that they were eligible to participate in and they have not received excessive yellow or red cards during the season.

If my child was out with injury or illness for more than 50% of the season, is she/he still eligible?

Please contact the All Star Coordinator if you feel this may apply to your player to discuss your individual circumstances. 

Player Evaluation Days - Sunday, November 3rd and Sunday, November 10th.

Player Evaluation Days will be held at Paloma Creek Park.  This is to ensure that coaches know who's interested and can continue to evaluate them throughout the rest of the season. Players interested in the All Star program are invited to come out to demonstrate their attitude, sportsmanship, skills, and a coach-ability.  There will be an information session for the parents during the evaluations so parents should plan on staying during this event.
Times are specific to age divisions:
     10U: 9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.
     12U: 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.
     14U: 2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
* Please plan on showing up 30 minutes early for player check in.
* Players need to be in their fall AYSO uniform.
* Players may bring a ball if it is the correct size, size 4 for 10U & 12U and size 5 for 14U (make sure their name is on it, because there will be a lot of balls).
Do I need to attend both evaluation days?
You do not need to attend both days, however it is recommended.  It gives your player more time on the ball and also gives the All Star coaches more time to see your player in action.

Can my player “play up” during All Stars?

Players must tryout for the same division they played in during the regular season.

How are the players selected?

All Star coaches make the selection and the Regional Commissioner has final say on all players chosen. Players are chosen based on attitude, sportsmanship, skill, coach-ability and commitment.  Rostered players selected will be expected to commit to the entire All-Star season.  Players who are unable to commit to play in every All-Star season tournament may be excluded from the selection process.  Players with other commitments may be selected as reserve players.  Reserve players will only be eligible to participate in tournaments if there is room on the roster and that reserve player is available. Greater consideration may also be given to those players who have a parent/guardian designee who is a certified referee.  Each team is required to have  five certified, experienced referees in order to be able to form a team.

Is the referee requirement new?

There has always been a tournament requirement that each team bring a qualified referee team of three who may officiate up to three matches over the weekend.  Now that region 1610 is an official AYSO Region, each team needs to adhere to this rule.

Can we pay referees to take this on at tournaments for us?

AYSO does not pay its officials.  We are a volunteer based organization.

What if I am afraid to referee?

Referees are assigned to age appropriate matches based on their level of experience and training.  

What if I do not have time to referee?

AYSO is run completely by volunteers.  Each one of those volunteers has  undoubtedly questioned their ability to volunteer as much time as they have, but they have found a way to do so for the children.    
As you are at the tournaments with your player, you will have a schedule that is designed around your child’s game times.  You will be at the field a bit longer to help make a positive impact for you team.

What if I don’t do the referee requirement?

Becoming a referee is completely voluntary.  Each team will need five referees in order to attend tournaments.  If it comes down to two players during selection time and one player has a parent/guardian referee and the other does not, more weight may be given to the player with the parent/guardian referee.

What is the referee requirement? 

Once you have taken the referee course, you will referee ten games by the end of the season.  During the All Star tournaments, you will be asked to referee an average of two games per All Star tournament.  The Referee Coordinators at each tournament try very hard to schedule those games around your child’s games so you can attend their matches.   

What if I sign up to be the referee and then cannot attend a tournament?

You will contact the [email protected] and let them know at least one week in advance of the tournament.  Any team not meeting their referee requirement at a tournament may forfeit their right to the next tournament. 

Who will the coaches be?

In order to be considered for an All-Star coaching position you must have completed the following:
1) Attended and completed a live age appropriate training.
2) Safe Haven certification.
3) Taken the CDC concussion course. 
4) Coached in the division during the primary season that you are applying for. (You must be listed on the official roster as a coach.)
Coaches must also be in good standing with AYSO.  Coaches should have AYSO’s core philosophies in mind when coaching and demonstrate those philosophies.  Preference may be given to coaches who are Regional Referees and who referee during the fall season. If you are interested in applying click the link in the Coach Application in the Links section of this page. 

Who chooses the coaches?

A committee of volunteers is asked to review the coach applications. After recommendations are made, the Regional Commissioner has final approval.

When will we find out if our child made the team?

Coaches will notify players if they have made the team between November 18th-25th, 2019.

How many teams will there be?

The amount of teams will be based on the amount of players that come to tryouts, the amount of coaches that are available in that division and the amount of certified referees.  We must strike this balance in order to play in any tournament.

When will they practice?

Coaches will select training times based on their availability.  Trainings will begin after the end of the regular season and  held 1-2 times per week. Breaks may be taken during the holidays. Coaches will notify you of the schedule prior to the start of trainings. 

When are the games?

Local Regional tournaments begin in the month of December and continue through February .  Specific game times will be announced by the tournament directors. 

How much does it cost?

Rostered Players:  $350 per player + optional warm-ups and backpack (~$100 extra)
Reserve Players:  $100 per player kit/training fee + $50 per tournament they participate in.

What do the fees cover?

What if I cannot afford the fee?

When is the money due?

All Star dues are due by December 13, 2019.  No cash will be accepted but you can write a check or get a cashier’s check or pay online with a credit card. 

What is the All Star Program Refund Policy?

A full refund will be paid for children who become medically unable to play prior to the first tournament.  Verification in writing from player’s doctor may be required before refund can be issued. Except for the reasons above, there will be NO Refunds for an All-Star program.
