Volunteers Needed!

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.

Play-offs Info!

Congratulations on making it to the end of the 2018 regular season!

The games for the 8U and 6U divisions are all done, but we have a few weeks of play-offs for the 10U, 12U and 14U divisions on November 10 and 17, 2018.

You can see how the standings have worked out here:

Castaic AYSO Standings

If you see any errors in your game scores, go ahead and email us at info@aysocastaic.com and let us know.

Game points work as follows:

Win - 6 points
Tie - 1 point
Loss - 0 point
Each goal up to three (per team) - 1 point each
Shutout (the other team doesn't score) - 1 point

So, for example, a 3-0 win would get you 10 points. A 2-2 tie would get each team 3 points. A 2-3 loss would get you 2 points, and the winning team 9 points.

In addition to "game points", if your team has a parent or associated volunteer who referees, you get one extra game point for each game that they referee as a center or assistant referee (they need to have signed up in the scheduler beforehand), with a maximum of 15 points for the season.

In the case of a tie on game points, the "tie-breakers" go in this order:

1. Result of head-to-head matches you played (the winner is ranked higher)
2. Goal differential
3. Goals for
4. Goals against

Depending on the division, the top 1, 2 or 3 teams will advance on to the Area Playoffs on January 12 and 19 to play against the top teams from Valencia, Canyon Country and Saugus.

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 2018 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.

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.
