Equipment Requirements

WHAT EQUIPMENT DOES MY PLAYER NEED?

  • Soccer Cleats
    •  There are different types of cleats for different sports. Your player must have soccer cleats. This is important. The referee will not permit your player to compete if she or he is wearing cleats designed for a different sport.
  • Shin Guards
    • These should be the correct size for your player. Most shin guards have sizing information on the packaging. Or just ask someone at the sporting goods store. Shin Guards are worn against the player's shins, underneath their socks. The referee will not permit your player to compete if she or he is not wearing shin guards.
  • Soccer Ball
    • These come in different sizes. Players should use size 3 in 6U, 7U and 8U. Size 4 in 10U and 12U. Size 5 in 14U and above.

Your player should bring all the above to their practice sessions and games. In addition, always remember to have water and sunscreen with you.

You do not need to provide your player's uniform (jersey, shorts and socks). We will provide that for you. The cost of the uniform is included in the registration fee you paid.

Who runs AYSO Region 2?
Volunteers run it. Everyone is a volunteer. From our team parents, coaches, referees, board members all the way up to the Region Commissioner and beyond. The region survives through the generous donation of time and energy given by our volunteers.

PLEASE consider volunteering.

We always, always, always need coaches and referees. We provide all the training necessary (at no cost) and no prior experience is required. There are few things more rewarding than being a role model to today's youth. Not to mention the quality bond you will share with your own player.

You will have the opportunity to register your interest in volunteering for one of our many available roles during the online registration process.
