AYSO Soccer in the Kern River Valley is Preparing for the New Season

Kern Valley Youth Soccer, AYSO Region 294, the regional board has been working over the last several months to develop a safe program in the midst of our world’s current situation with the pandemic we are facing.

They have been reviewing guidance from the AYSO National Board of Directors as well as local and state guidelines in preparing a safe environment for players and families. The board is finalizing the details for the fall season and is anticipating the announcement of an opening date in late July, early August. Because time has been cut short, the board is asking families to register their children now. Everyone who registers will be put on a waitlist.

The waitlist at this point guarantees your child a spot on a team. By putting your child on a waitlist, you will NOT have to pay in the off chance our current state situation changes in the next 30 days. Children on the waitlist will be moved to registered status as soon as the official opening date is determined. At that point, payment will be due. If you do not pay, your child will not play.

We will still honor early bird registrations. People who “register” by the early bird date of July 3rd, 2020 will be guaranteed the early bird price.

However, once we announce the opening of the season and move from the waitlist to registration, payment will be expected within a week’s time in order to still qualify for the early bird fee. If for some reason, in the next 30 days, a decision is made by the AYSO National Office to cancel the season, we will let our families know of this decision.

The regional board highly encourages everyone to take the time and register your child(ren) for the fall season. This will help your board in the planning and preparing necessary to hit the ground running once the fall season is opened.

Registration fees will remain the same as last year with one minor change:
EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION: $83 / child (Registered by July 3rd)
Regular Registration: $98 / Child (July 4-August 15)

For ALL Transactions: a $2.75 fee will be assessed for EVERY credit card transaction (not per player)
