The Fall Core Recreational Program starts in late August. Before registering and submitting Buddy requests, please read the Registration page.
A child may specify a maximum of one “playing buddy” to be on the same team which must be reciprocated by the playing buddy. Buddy forms are prioritized for volunteers and all are subject to Team Balancing. Submitting a Buddy Form does not guarantee it will be approved.
Both players must be registered before Open Registration closes.
Both players must be registered in the same division
The Buddy Form must be signed by a parent of both players
By signing the Buddy Form, both parents are agreeing to the rules stated on the form.
Buddy forms must be submitted during the walk-in registration dates found here.
We will not accept (non-volunteer) Buddy requests for more than two players.
We will not accept Buddy requests with the same player listed on more than one form.
Siblings playing on the same team are allowed to request playing buddies.
Buddy Forms must be submitted in person.
Volunteer Buddy Forms must be signed and can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are a Head Coach and are requesting a specific Assistant Coach, please use the Coach Buddy Form. The third buddy on the Coach Buddy Form is for referee volunteers only. If you don’t have a referee, please just fill out the Coach and Assistant Coach parts of the form.
If you are a coach, referee, board member or division coordinator, you can coordinate handing in your Buddy Form electronically or in person during walk-in registration. A form submitted electronically should not be considered valid until you have received a confirmation reply.
If you are not already a coach, referee, division coordinator, or board member, you will be asked to volunteer at some level and your commitment will be noted on your form when you turn it in person. Please remember that AYSO is an all-volunteer organization and we need your help to make soccer happen for the kids. Playing buddies are a privilege, reserved for families who volunteer. Even so, it just one factor involved in team formation. Submission of a Buddy Form does not guarantee placement of players together as balanced team formation takes precedence.
