Fall 2021 Covid Update
The County of Los Angeles has updated their Covid policy, effective 9/1. Please review it here:
The board is working on a plan to implement these guidelines and have a successful season.
AYSO Castaic is a volunteer-run organization, and we need parents and community members to help.
If you are a parent or other community member and are willing to help, please join us at an upcoming board meeting. At the meetings, we discuss the current season and plan for future seasons. There are countless ways to volunteer, with different degrees of time and effort.
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
New Regional Commissioner
Our Regional Commissioner, Josh Kenney, will be finishing his tenure at the end of this season. That means we're looking for a new Regional Commissioner. If you're interested in leading the Castaic AYSO region in the coming years, please reach out to a board member.
Referee Training 2021
We need parents and other community members to volunteer as referees. If you're willing to help, please see the info here:
Referee training for new referees (teenagers or adults) will be in late August. Before taking the in-person class, there is an online portion of the course that must be completed, so please contact Jonathan Burk, our Referee Administrator, to get more info. And thanks in advance for volunteering!
There are other referee courses in Saugus, Valencia and Canyon Country throughout the months of August and September (usually on Saturdays or Sundays). If you can't attend our Castaic class, those are also an option.
Check back here for a updated list of local referee training courses, or search online at aysou.org
Castaic AYSO has been providing a world-class soccer program to the youth of Castaic since 2002. We hope you'll join us for our 2021 season to help make it the best season yet. We are a volunteer run organization, and rely on the parents and other community members to coach, referee and volunteer for the kids.

Fall Season FAQ:
Registration is now open for Fall 2021.
When does it start?
Teams are organized in early August. Practices start in mid-August. Games start the week after Labor Day.
When does it stop?
Games for 6U and 8U divisions end in November. Games for other divisions (10U and up) end after playoffs, usually late November or early December.
Where are the games and practices?
While locations are still being determined based on how the county and schools reopen, games are usually at Castaic Middle School. Most Practices will be at the Castaic Sports Complex or other local Castaic parks or schools. Your coach will give you the time and place. There's a chance games could be in Valencia or Saugus if Castaic fields aren't available.
How much does it cost?
$130 per player. The registration fee covers registration with AYSO, a uniform (jersey, shorts and socks), and all field and game fees. 16U and 19U divisions have an extra $25 referee fee.
Anything else I need to know?
Yes. Castaic AYSO is a volunteer-run organization and we need more parents and community members to volunteer as coaches, referees and board members to help the program. Please plan on taking some time as a parent to help with the program.
