Below you will find an outline of when do “things happen” and what you need to know for the upcoming Coed League.

Basic Outline

Pass Area AYSO Region 641 Coed Spring League will begin on March 11, 2017. This league is a separate program from both Fall Season and Spring Select. Visit the Coed Program page for more information.

Coed Spring League is open to new and returning players aged 5 to 13 or players that played in U6 to first year of U14, born between August 1, 2004 to July, 31 2011 during the Fall 2015 Season. View our age group calculator.

Coed is a league in which boys and girls play alongside and against one another; however, many other aspects of the program follow the same format as the Fall Season.

Coed League is all about fun, staying fit and developing the skills and knowledge of the participants; coaches and players alike. The league will not maintain records and the emphasis will be on growing a love of the sport and building technique and fitness.

What should I be doing now?

The answer to this question varies based upon your Coed League role.

Players:

Players should be thinking about what they want to accomplish during the Coed League Season (score a goal, make friends, get better at dribbling, etc.). It also doesn’t hurt for all players to get used to the feel of the ball at their feet. 15-30 minutes a day of dribbling, shooting, passing and turning will do wonders for control and confidence.

Parents:

Parents should be thinking about how they can best assist their player in having a successful season. This can include encouraging the player to work with a ball, reading up on the game, attending volunteer trainings and, of course, staying up-to-date by checking this website, Facebook and other sources for information and upcoming events pertaining to the league.

Coaches, Team Managers and Referees:

Volunteers should notify the region of the desire to volunteer through the volunteer interest page located here. Volunteers should stay up-to-date on information by monitoring the region website, Facebook page and other sources of information. Note: Sending notification of desire to volunteer in any capacity does not guarantee placement.

What should my player have for the first practice?

Players should come to all practices with water, shinguards (against the skin and under socks) an age-appropriate ball (identified below) and a positive, open attitude. Cleats are not mandatory but are highly recommended (if purchasing cleats make sure to buy SOCCER cleats).

What size ball should my player have?

  • Under 5 (Jamboree): Size Three (3)
  • Under 6: Size Three (3)
  • Under 8: Size Three (3)
  • Under 10: Size Four (4)
  • Under 13: Size Four (4)

If you are unsure which division your child will fall in to you may opt to delay the purchase of a ball until after your coach notifies you.

When are practices?

Practices are generally after 5pm and are scheduled on days set by the volunteer coach.

Can I request certain practice days/times?

The best way to ensure you get the practice days and times you want is to volunteer to coach. If that is not possible you may place a request on your form, however; this does not guarantee your request. Also, many coaches do not pick their practice days and times until they have a roster in their hand; this makes it virtually impossible for the region to place kids by this very specific criteria.

In general the region does not honor requests to move children from one team to another team once placed in order to accommodate other activities or work schedules. Verbal requests made after a player has been placed on a team will never be considered.

Can I request my child play with certain players?

No. Only valid Sibling requests shall be considered.

A SIBLING is defined as follows: “Each of two or more children or offspring having one or both parents in common; a brother or sister.” Additionally, SIBLINGS shall reside in the same household.
