AYSO Carson City Region 140

COVID-19 Update

2020 Fall Schedule Amended

On October 2, Governor Sisolak issued a new directive and accompanying guidance relaxing some of the previous restrictions in place for youth sports.  The new rules increase the number of spectators at an event from 50 to 250.  This allows AYSO to have additional divisions during each time slot so that you can start the rest of your Saturday earlier.  Because of earlier sunsets, we need to start all weeknight sessions at 5:30.  The new schedule is as follows (changes in bold underline):

Playground/Schoolyard (2016/2017)- Saturday’s only at 10:00
6U Boys/Girls (born 2015)- Saturdays 8:30; Wednesdays 5:30
8U Boys (2013/2014) - Saturdays 8:30; Tuesdays 5:30
8U Girls (2013/2014) - Saturdays 8:30; Wednesdays 5:30
10U Boys (2011/2012) - Saturdays 11:00; Thursdays 5:30
10U Girls (2011/2012) - Saturdays 11:00; Mondays 5:30
12U Boys (2009/2010) - Saturdays 8:30; Thursdays 5:30
12U Girls (2009/2010) - Saturdays 10:00; Mondays 5:30
14U/16U Boys (2005-2008) - Saturdays 11:00; Thursdays 5:30
14U/16U Girls (2005-2008) - Saturdays 10:00; Mondays 5:30

The last day for Playground/Schoolyard will be Saturday, October 17.  The last day for all other players will be Saturday, October 25.

As everyone is well aware by now, the current COVID pandemic has created challenges for all youth sports.  Despite these challenges, we think it is so important to get our kids out of the house to have a little exercise and some social interaction.  That said, we are cognizant of the safety risks that COVID represents.  Therefore, we have created a fall season designed to limit exposure for your children with clinics/sessions designed improve players’ skills within smaller groups.

All instructional periods will be scheduled to limit contact with other groups before, during and after practice without crowding.  Coaches and players are asked to arrive no earlier than 15 minutes before their scheduled time and leave no more than 15 minutes after the end of their scheduled time.

Single Point of Entry.  There will be one point of entry (at the sanihut) at which an AYSO official will take temperature readings of each person entering the field.  Signs will be posted to clearly mark entrances and exits.  We will also ask those that enter the field whether they are exhibiting any COVID symptoms.

Smaller groups.  AYSO recreational soccer for all ages will occur on the south side of Pete Livermore Sports Complex on smaller, 8U fields.  Players will be broken up into groups of 8 to 10 and assigned to a field.  All fields will be at least 10 yards from any other field or training space. 

Equipment. Hand sanitizer will be available for coaches to apply for each child prior to starting play and wipes to clean balls.  There will be no goalie and no throw-in practice to limit hand contact with the ball.  Players should not touch the goals.  Equipment and water/fluid bottles should not be shared.  All players must wear shinguards under the socks and closed toed sneakers or soccer cleats. No slide tackles are allowed.  No spitting is allowed.

Masks.  All individuals, including players, will be required to wear masks while at Pete Livermore Sports Complex, except for players that are actively playing.  Players should wear masks when not exerting themselves.

Spectator Limitations.  Generally, only players, coaches, referees and AYSO officials will be allowed on the field.  Additionally, only one parent or guardian per player will be allowed on the field.  However, to reduce the number of people on the field, parents are highly encouraged to drop-off their kids or to remain in their cars during sessions if they would like to remain onsite.

If You are Sick. We ask that anyone not feeling well, with a fever, or exhibiting any respiratory symptoms please do not come to Pete Livermore Sports Complex.  If your player or a family member has been diagnosed with COVID, regardless of whether you are exhibiting symptoms, we ask that you not come to Pete Livermore Sports complex, cooperate with Carson City health officials and tell us so that we can take appropriate action.  We will track which kids play on which fields.  If we become aware that a player has COVID, we will work with Carson City health officials to help with contact tracing and determine an appropriate pause in play for affected players.  We will notify the parents of each player that may have been exposed to COVID and provide return to play criteria at that time.

Facilities.  Due to reductions in staff within the Carson City Parks and Rec department, the City is unable to provide normal services.  Therefore, restrooms will be closed.  We recommend your players go to the restroom before they leave home.  However, a sanihut will be available near the south restrooms and another will be near the snack bar if needed.

If conditions improve, we may be able to create a more normal soccer experience with larger teams and games against other teams.  We ask for your patience and flexibility as we try to create the best experience possible as conditions evolve.

We feel that by following the plan above, we can create a safe playing environment for your kids and for ours.  Only by working as a team - with the board, the coaches, the referees, the players and the parents - can we do so.  We want to get our kids out of the house for their sanity and yours!  Please join us in bringing great soccer to Carson City’s kids!

Playground - Ages 3 & 4
(for Fall 2020 - kids born in 2016-2017; must be age 3 at the first session)

AYSO Playground is the only soccer program for Carson City’s youngest players starting at age three! It’s about 60-80 minutes on Saturdays each spring and fall and focuses on the player’s mental, physical and social development with parachutes, hula hoops and of course, soccer balls. In this program, parents work side-by-side with their players and... play. Toward the end, players break out into teams of three or four to test their new skills. Let the chaos begin!

For more information, see our Playground information page.

Fall and Spring Core for Younger Players - Ages 5 (6U) through 7 (8U)
(for Fall 2020 - kids born in 2013-2015)

This is youth soccer at its Core and is open to all players under age 8 in the spring and fall. Games are played on small fields with four players on the field per team and no goalies. The games are designed to maximize ball touches and maximize scoring opportunities (studies have shown that kids that score more, play soccer longer). In the spring, teams are formed in April with the first games after the last weekend in April and the last games on the last week of school in June. In the fall, teams are formed in August with the first games on the weekend before Labor Day and the last games toward the end of October. Games are on Saturdays with a few weekday evening games. Run up that score!

For more information, see our Core for Younger Players information page.

Spring Jamboree - Ages 8 (10U) through 18 (19U) NEW!!!
(for Fall 2020 - kids born in 2002-2012)

Jamboree is a new, fast-paced, skills-based program focused on foot work and short distance passing open to all skill levels ages 10U and up. Played in the spring, Jamboree starts after the last weekend in April and lasts until the first weekend in June. In each of ten sessions, Jamboree teams are mixed up with three or four players per team on a small 8U field with no goalies. We’ve modified the rules slightly for the smaller fields- for instance, you can’t score at the start of play, there are no goalies and no offside. It’s a party; it’s a bash; it’s a Jamboree!

For more information, see our Jamboree information page.

Fall Core - Ages 8 (10U) through 15 (16U)
(for Fall 2020 - kids born in 2005-2012)

The Fall Core program is open to all older players. Fields and teams get bigger as players age creating opportunities to learn soccer strategies and some of the more complicated rules such as offside, direct and indirect kicks and more. Teams are formed every August with balanced teams (or at least, as balanced as we can make them with the information that we have) and practice throughout August. The first game is immediately after Opening Ceremonies on the weekend before Labor Day and the last game is toward the end of October. Games are mostly on Saturdays with a few weekday evening games. Ready! Set! Goal!

For more information, see our Fall Core for Older Players information page.

Fall All Stars - Ages 8 (10U) through 15 (16U)
(for Fall 2020 - kids born in 2005-2012)

The best players of our fall core season are our All Stars. At the end of the fall season, the coaches meet to create the best team possible in each division. These teams get two weeks of practice prior to head to head matches against other regions at the Kit Carson Area 2E and 2F All Star Tournament, which is usually held the first weekend of November. Every player is a star- but only the best are All Stars!

Toiyabe (Spring Coach Select) - Ages 8 (10U) through 13 (14U)
(for Spring 2021 - kids born in 2007-2012)

Toiyabe is for Fall Core players that want a higher level of play in the spring. At the end of January, we hold tryouts and select one team in each division to represent Carson City in the Area 2F Toiyabe program. Players must commit to travel to play other regions as far away as Bishop, South Lake Tahoe and Fernley. Practices begin as early as February or March, depending on field conditions, and games last from the first weekend in April to the first weekend in June. Toiyabe Teams are invited to play in the Comstock Shootout Tournament in April, the Wild West Shootout Tournament in May, and the Toiyabe Championships in June. Get your cheer on!

For more information, see our Spring Coach Select Toiyabe for Older Players information page.

Ai Competitive Club - Ages 8 (10U) through 14 (15U) NEW!!!
(for Fall 2020 - kids born in 2006-2012)

For those players that just can’t get enough and have the skills and experience on the field to prove it, AYSO Interplay (Ai) is the program for you! Ai is a new program that will play at the silver competitive level in club soccer. Ai will only be available in certain divisions based on Toiyabe teams that are competitive in past play and coaches and players that embody AYSO’s six philosophies - teams must be invited to play Ai. Tryouts for individual players will be at the end of June and will be open to all players. Practices will begin in July with games starting in August and lasting through October, mostly in Reno and Carson City. Some travel may be required. It’s the next step in soccer evolution - it’s Ai!
