AYSO AREA 2D

What is the Area 2D AYSO Alliance program?

What is AYSO Alliance?

Our AYSO Area, which includes Antelope, Capay, Colusa County, Davis, Rio Linda and Winters, is one of the first locations in the United States to offer the AYSO Alliance Program. It represents the most competitive AYSO program in our community. It will field teams that are competitive with many teams fielded by other local clubs. These teams will generally compete at the Bronze or Silver levels. It does not seek to field teams that compete at a national level. It is a community-based program with players who mostly live in or close to our communities.

The AYSO Alliance program is special for the following reasons:
• Club bylaws require that “Everyone Plays” (50%+) every game.
• Teams are made up mostly of classmates and neighbors 
• Teams play home games and practice on local fields.
• Teams depend on volunteers, creating a special team community that extends beyond the field.
• A Director of Coaching will support certified, high quality, volunteer coaches. 
• Club and coaches recognize “whole person development” includes other equally important extracurricular activities.
• Club expects players and families to give back to the larger AYSO program and community as volunteers.

In addition, many teams have participated in a team camp for a few weeks in the summer. Players work on soccer in the mornings and then do volunteer and other activities organized by parents in the afternoons.

What has AYSO Alliance done during the COVID-19 period?

Recognizing the importance of strict adherence to State and County health guidance as well as the physical, social and psychological needs of our youth athletes and community, the six AYSO Alliance teams have conducted 2-3 socially distanced, training sessions each week since June 15. All training sessions have followed health and safety protocols found here in their sessions. In addition to the team-based, individual training sessions, we have held two Soccer Olympics, providing a safe environment for individuals to compete for their teams against others. Photos of these events can be found on the AYSO Alliance Area 2D Facebook page.  We look forward to resuming games once State and County health guidance allows us to do so.

When and where do the AYSO Alliance teams play?

The season for AYSO Alliance teams normally lasts about ten months from August to May, with reduced intensity in the winter months. Teams generally play between 40 and 50 games across the season. The number of games played and the length of the season vary by the team. Teams in the AYSO Alliance Program will play in 6-10 tournaments each year.  Families and coaches collaborative determine the tournaments in which each team participates. The season and types of competitions for 2020 and 2021 will follow local health and safety guidance.

How are players chosen for AYSO Alliance teams?

Players on AYSO Alliance teams participate in tryouts for the respective age divisions. We are proud that, even in 2020 during the COVID-19 crisis, we held actual tryouts for all players. Given the need to provide players with the opportunity to come back to the field (in a socially distanced manner) after being isolated for several months, we provided all players with three weeks of open training sessions during the months of June and July 2020. The final teams were selected in July, based on a week of tryouts after that reintroduction period. Tryouts for future years will again align with the timing of tryouts for other clubs.

How much does it cost to play for an AYSO Alliance team?

The annual registration fee for an AYSO Alliance team is approximately $550. The registration fee includes AYSO player and league registration, a uniform kit, individual and team photo package, game and practice field permits, registrar and administrative fees, referee costs, player insurance and league fees. In addition, families will be responsible for annual team fees (which cover lit training fields in the winter and tournaments) which vary based on the number and location of tournaments in which teams choose to participate. For the period from June - December 2020, the total costs for participating in the AYSO Alliance program was $220 per player
