2018 Select Season Information

AYSO Select Season FAQs

What is AYSO Select?

The AYSO Select program is an opportunity for enthusiastic players to keep playing  following the Fall season. It is open only to players who registered and participated in at least 70 percent of the Fall Season in the 10U-14U divisions, and 50 percent of the Fall Season in the 16U-19U divisions. Detailed information on the program is available at under season and programs.

Will Select soccer consume my family’s life?

The Select season lasts six months – so it is a long commitment. However, the weekly time commitment is similar to the fall season. There will be two trainings a week and a game on Saturday for the regular season (January – March). Trainings begin in December and games in January. From March through May, the teams will play in tournaments. These are generally a weekend commitment. Most teams play 4-6 tournaments spread out from February through Memorial Day so there are 1 or 2 per month. The other weekends are free. Generally, 1-3 tournaments may include hotel stays – these are really FUN! It should be noted that parents are required to actively participate and help with various volunteer activities to make the Select season a success.

How much travel is involved to participate in Select?

There are usually about 8 regular season Saturday games. Half of the games are home games in Davis. In addition, some of the away games are against Davis teams. So, at least half and possibly as many as 6 of the 8 games will be in Davis. The furthest away games are in Contra Costa County in Walnut Creek, Pleasant Hill and Concord – about an hour’s drive. Tournament travel is similar but can be a little farther – eg, San Jose, Pacifica, and Palo Alto.

What will the Select season cost?

Registration costs will be $180, which includes Regional costs, uniform purchase, and Regional Tournament fees. Scholarships are available for the registration costs. Team fees (which include other tournament registration fees, field rental fees, and other miscellaneous costs) can vary depending on the number of tournaments a team decides to play, etc, and can reach the low hundreds of dollars.  Participation in tournaments may also incur lodging, transportation, and food costs, which are the responsibility of each family.  However, teams will always work to find ways to make this as affordable as possible for everyone and can fundraise as needed. These costs are also spread out over a six month period.

How are players selected?

Information from player applications is provided to the Select coaches who also scout players during the Fall season, and then “draft” players in their divisions to develop balanced teams. While it is true that not all applicants are able to be placed on teams, Davis AYSO supports developing as many teams as possible based on the number of available coaches and the total number of registrations.

Is Select soccer very different from Fall soccer?

As in Fall soccer, the AYSO philosophies (Everyone Plays, Balanced Teams, Open Registration, Positive Coaching, Good Sportsmanship and Player Development) still apply and Select is played for fun. Most Select players simply want to play a longer season with other players who love to play. The main traits of Select players is that they like to play soccer, like to hang out with friends playing soccer, and have energy and enthusiasm for the game. Players will develop faster and more because they play for an extra six months.

What if my child has not played Select before or was not selected previously?

This in no way excludes your child from playing this year. Children change dramatically, players leave, and different numbers will register every year.
