Opening Day 2017!

Thank you to all the volunteers who have worked so hard to get the season going.  Thank you to the coaches, referees and board members.

Parents and coaches, remember that if you have the 8am match, you need to arrive at the field early (~7:15am) and help get the goals set up and unload the equipment trailer. 

If you have the last game of the day, we need you to help take the goals down and load the equipment trailer.

And remember to support the referees, even when you don't agree with the call.  It's getting harder and harder to find volunteer referees, and part of the problem can be the way coaches and parents treat them:

Verbal Abuse From Parents, Coaches Is Causing a Referee Shortage in Youth Sports

 

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 2017 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.

Hope to see you in the fall!

-John Richard

Regional Commissioner, Castaic AYSO Region 1441

AYSO Parents' Guide

Parents, referees and coaches, be sure to check out the "AYSO Guidance For Referees, Coaches, Other Volunteers & Parents."  It tells you about the rules of soccer and the AYSO program.  There are some changes for 2017 that aren't included in this version yet, but it's still a valuable resource.

Referee Super-Camp In August!

If you are a referee and want to take your skills to the next level, don't miss the local "super-camp" in August.

And if you aren't a referee yet and are willing to help out, don't miss our "beginner" referee class in August.  We need parents and other community members to help out.
