***Requests to play up or down a division are no longer being accepted for the Fall 2014 season.***
We generally do not approve requests for players to play in an age group older than their own. The reasoning is explained in this Q&A from AYSO National Coach Administrator John Ouellette. Play down requests are extremely rare and are only granted in the case of significant physical and/or developmental delays.
If, after reading this reasoning you still wish to submit a play up request, please e-mail the Player Evaluation Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your player's name, AYSO ID#, divisions wishing to move from and to, and previous coach name and contact information. In addition, please provide specific information on why you are requesting the play up. We will contact your player's previous coach for a recommendation and may request an on-field evaluation of your player.
Decisions on play up requests will not be made until after the June 30th deadline for guaranteed registration. In the event a play up request is approved, it is on a space available basis for the receiving division.
