Santa Ana, CA | Where Life IS Soccer!



Spring soccer registration is now open!

Spring soccer is designed to give coaches and players an opportunity to enhance their soccer skills, travel and have fun. We offer recreational and competitive divisions aka “Coach Select”. The qualified coach may select players of his/her choice in accordance to our regions guidelines.


*Individual players that have not been asked by a coach to join a specific team may still register for Spring and every effort will be made to place those players on a team.

*If you would like to coach your child's team or a team please sign up during the online registration process as a "Volunteer Coach" and one of our board members will contact you before the season begins.

*Players not placed on a team will receive a full refund.


1. *Must be approved prior to recruiting team

2. Must attend the mandatory coach meeting prior to the first practice.  

3. All teams are required to have a coach, assistant coach and a minimum of 2 referees (minimum of one referee for U8 teams).

4. Coaches, assistant coaches and referees must have a current volunteer form, Safe Haven online course, Concussion online course and have completed training for that age division.

5. Teams must also have a field maintenance volunteer and a team parent.


*Children of Coaches and Referees will be given priority.

AYSO has switched to Calendar Year for divisions to align with other youth soccer organizations per US Soccer Federation Initiative 

Your child may move up one division based on birth YEAR not age

All divisions will be renamed, with the U after the division number. 
Example:  U10 will now be 10U 

There is still NO HEADING in 12U and below

In addition there will no longer be punting allowed in 12U and 10U for goal keepers.

There will be a BUILD-OUT LINE in 10U to promote playing the ball out of the back field

New rule implementation for 6U and 8U. All throw-ins will be replaced with a PASS-IN to put ball into play.

 Revised 6/2018
