HOW DOES AYSO WORK ? HOW MAY I HELP?

The AYSO organization is run entirely by volunteers. You may help as a coach, referee, team parent, Board Member or in other areas. AYSO will provide complete training.

HOW LONG IS THE FALL SEASON AND WHEN ARE THE GAMES?

Games start the first saturday of September and continue thru mid November. The schedule will vary by division with U9 thru U19 players participating in post season playoffs.

WHERE AND WHEN WILL MY CHILD PRACTICE?

Practices are held at numerous sites at which Region 85 holds permits. The decision of place, day, and time rests with your child's coach. Practices are generally conducted two times per week, except U6 which is generally once per week.

REGION 85 RAIN POLICY

Fall Rain Policy

If there is rain on or just prior to game day, the Region will make a decision whether the fields are open or closed. The main concern is for player safety. Protecting the fields from damage is also a major consideration. Always use your best judgment when playing or practicing when conditions are poor.

Even if the region decides to play games, a specific site may be unplayable. That call is ultimately made by the referee.

Games and practices are always canceled whenever lightning is in the area.

AYSO Plus and U16/U19 should check the Area website for conditions. Field status may be different in different cities. Lake Forest may decide to play while Irvine or Mission Viejo does not.

On game days, the information will be posted by 7:00 am. There will be multiple ways to get the news.

1. The Area 11L website. Click on Mudline - where all field conditions are posted. This is also linked from the Fields page of the Region 85 website.

2. The Region 85 website - ayso85.org. At the top of the Home page, there will be a very obvious message with field status.

3. AYSO Region 85 Voicemail, 859-9114. We'll change the voice mail greeting to indicate field status.

For the City of Lake Forest parks (Regency and Heroes Park), the mudline is 461-3595 and is updated about 1:00 pm weekdays. The city makes the decision on those fields - especially the lights at Heroes Park. The city may not update the mudline on the weekend so check the AYSO websites for the latest conditions.

Thanks for your help!
