Please plan on having your team have their pictures taken on Saturday, Sept. 27th. Your coaches have the picture schedule and should be letting you know when to arrive. The pictures are scheduled to be taken indoors so the weather shouldn’t play a factor!
This is another fundraising option for us as a portion of the proceeds from the pictures are given to our region and we use that money to help fund the trophies at the end of the year (end of Spring session). We encourage the participation of all teams and the head coach gets a free gift. Remember that we only do team pictures in the Fall.
Please arrive 5 to 10 minutes before your scheduled picture time to help make things go smoothly.
Contact your coach if you have any questions regarding pictures.
Hello soccer fans! The much anticipated Fall 2014 schedules are now online. The U5 and U6 division schedules have the complete Fall season posted. The U8-U14 divisions links will take you to the Area 4U Scheduling website. The younger divisions have most of the season done, however the upper divisions only currently have the first week. Check back often and we’ll see you this weekend at the fields!
Hello everyone! We’d like to take a moment to introduce you to our newly refreshed website for the region. The old website had a wealth of information, but had not been updated with a new “look” for over 5 years. This new site will allow us to post information quickly. The main starting point of the website has a blog feel to it where we will post new information as needed. The navigation menus on the right side of the page will have quick links to places such as schedules.
We have also created a mobile friendly website that you can access from your smartphone. Keep checking back for more!
Region 253 will be hosting registration events for the upcoming season very soon. The following are the dates and times for the registration events for this fall.
Hope to see you there!!
We will be sending out notice of our in-person registration events soon. However, you can sign up your player(s) online at www.eayso.org. We have implemented e-sign this year for both our players and volunteers so you can fill out everything and electronically sign online. You will need to make sure you complete the e-sign. Then you can print one copy of the form and either mail it with payment to:
AYSO Region 253
PO Box 507
Valley Center, KS 67147
or bring the form and payment to one of the upcoming in-person registration events.
Fees are remaining at $90 and it covers both Fall and Spring – uniform is included (shirt, shorts, socks).
Returning volunteers or parents who have never used www.eAYSO.org will need to click on the appropriate button (described below) and follow the instructions to create an email login/password. You will then be prompted to contact 866-588-2976 to have your current AYSO volunteer or player ID linked with your new eAYSO login.
