Registration Update

AYSO Region 294 Families and friends:

Good day to you all.  I hope that you are all doing well in the midst of our world’s current situation with the pandemic we are facing.  It has most definitely changed the way we do things on a daily basis.

The one area that has been affected for our AYSO region is our opening registration date.  Typically, we would have opened registration on April 15, as we have done in the past several years.  However, the situation in our country delayed our start time until we could determine a plan of action for the upcoming season.

At our board meeting Monday, and after seeking council from out section director, we determined a plan of action as follows:

  • We WILL be opening up Registration on Saturday, April 25, 2020.
  • Everyone who registers will be put on a wait list:
    • The wait list at this point guarantees your child a spot on a team
    • By putting your child on a wait list, you will NOT have to pay in the off chance our current national situation continues longer than we hope
    • Once all Shelter-in-place orders have been lifted and it has been determined that we can go back to life as normal, children on the wait list will be moved to a regular status. At that point, payment will be due. If you do not pay, your child will not play.
  • We will still honor early bird registrations. People who “register” by the early bird date of June 30 will be guaranteed the early bird price, even if we do not open up the wait list until after the June 30 date. However, once we are given the all clear and we open up registration fully, payment will be expected within a week’s time in order to still qualify for the early bird fee.
  • If for some reason a decision is made by the AYSO National Office to cancel the season, we will let our families know of this decision.

We as a regional board hope that things will get better by the time it comes for us to start our fall season, and at the same time we want to maintain some sense of normalcy for everyone while still recognizing the state of our nation and world at this time.  We highly encourage everyone to take the time and register your child(ren) for the fall season. This will help your board in the planning and preparing we have to do as if things were normal and we can hit the ground running once (and if) things go back to normal. 

Registraton fees will remain the same as last year with one minor change:

  • EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION: $83 / child (Registered by June 30)
  • Regular Registration: $98 / Child (July 1-August 15)
    • For ALL Transactions: a $2.75 fee will be assessed for EVERY credit card transaction (not per player)

We hope that things can return to normal soon.  In the meantime, we encourage you to go ahead and register your child(ren) now for Soccer, in hopes that we will be able to hold our 2020 Fall Soccer Season. Remember:  It opens on Saturday, April 25, 2020. 

Respectfully,

Aaron Pierce,
