Registration FAQ's

You will need to register through Sports Connect.  If you already have an account, click the Login Button in the upper right corner of the page.  If you do not have an account, click the Register Now button in the upper right corner of the page.

Below are several frequently asked questions and answers that can help.

When do we find out what team we are on?
 Teams are selected and given to Coaches in end of August. If you do not here from a coach by September 12, please contact the division coordinator for your players division.  E-mail address are on the Staff page under the "About Us" tab.  We always need Coaches, Assistant Coaches and Team Managers, so please sign up.

What time is practice and were is practice for 6U and older? The practice time and location of practice is determined by the individual Coach. The Coach will most likely be one of the player’s parents. They will advise you when practice will occur.

Why were no programs available for my player?   If a division is full, the system will place your player on the waitlist at no cost to you.  We might be able to expand the teams in that division or a player may drop and we can move waitlisted player(s) into the division, but your player needs to be on the waitlist. Not all players registered after August 23, 2020 will be placed on a team, but we will do our best

Why is my player on a waitlist? In order to form teams we need an even number of teams with the right amount of players on each team.  So that we do not register too many players, we established soft limits.  As soon as enough players to make two more teams are formed and we are confident that we can get coaches, we will move your player off the waitlist.  If we do not have enough players to form two teams, we often are able to place players on other teams as we often have players drop, even after the season has started.

Why is my 14 year old player on 19U? Our 19U division has always been a combination of 16U and 19U players.   Therefore players born 2002 to 2006 will be in this division. Please know that we have mixed younger and older players together for years with good success.

I am having problems registering as a volunteer. What do I do? First thank you for volunteering to help. Please take a screen shot of where you have a problem and e-mail our Registrar at [email protected] with the screen shot and your problem.

What type of programs are offered by AYSO 688? We offer a variety of programs depending on the player’s age.  

Playground (4U): For children who are born in 2017.  The children learn soccer skills like kicking, dribbling, and throwing in the ball, but in a low-pressure setting and through fun games. There are not set teams and the activities are only on Saturday.

6U-19U:  Considered the core of AYSO, 6U will practice once a week with 8U through 19U up to twice a week with games on Saturday.  There are some 14U games played on Thursday/Friday nights.  Travel throughout the valley and possibly Globe and Wickenburg can be likely for the 16/19U divisions. 

VIP: For players whose physical or mental special needs make it difficult for them to successfully participate on mainstream soccer teams.  No practice during the week, just Saturday activity/games.

Are there any coed teams?  VIP, 4U and 6U - all else will be separate divisions.

Can I request a coach or a player?  We allow player and coach requests, but are not always able to honor those requests. You can make requests in the player registration process. 

When does Fall Season Start? For 4U and older, the first game of the season is October 3, 2020.   You will be receiving notification closer to these dates.  Dates are subject to change.

What time are my games? For 6U and older, the games will vary each week from 8:00 am to 1:00pm  Schedules are posted middle of September.

Who do I contact if I still have questions or issues?   Email [email protected] and your question will be forwarded to the corresponding board member.
