Welcome to AYSO Region 2

2020 Skills Program

Fall 2020 Skills Development Program
Training Begins October 5th, 2020 for a six week coed program with training sessions held two days per week (M/W or T/Th) for one hour at either City Hall Field or Dana Middle School. The registration fee is $50 per player. No refunds allowed after payment.

Open to all players eligible to play in 8U - 19U with a focus on individual skill development only --- no games or player to player contact drills. Fields will be at less than 50% capacity with small groups: 8:1 ratio (8U & 10U) / 10:1 ratio (12U & up), stable coaching & a set roster for the entire session.

Highlight of Safety Practices:

  •  Controlled entry / exit --- only participants, coaches and limited admin staff. Region 2 has exclusive and dedicated use of these fields for these times.
  •  Social distancing enforced and managed throughout the program.
  •  Face masks required for entry. Players (only) may remove during training only
  •  All coaching supplies touched only by the coach.
  •  Soccer ball, water and face mask supplied by participant & required for entry.
  •  Benches, bleachers and water fountains are not to be used.
  •  30 minute gaps between sessions to allow for easier entry / exit.
  •  Sanitization process employed between sessions.
  •  All players must have initials clearly written on their face mask for easy ID.
Please read all signs and follow the directions of onsite Admin staff.  Our goal is to be able to get your players back on Region 2’s fields, and to do that, we need everyone’s support, understanding and assistance.  Thank you!

Entry / Exit Process

  • All entrances will be manned by admin staff at all times. Players, coaches and admin staff ONLY --- NO EXCEPTIONS (including for the bathroom).
  •  Players are allowed in once the field has been fully cleared from the previous session and admin staff begin entry.
  •  Players will walk immediately to their coaches area on the field and wait in a spot designated for them to place their water and await instruction from their coach.
  •  We ask that no bags or other items be brought inside the gates with the exception of water and their soccer ball. Gear should be fully on before entry

City Hall Field Specific Instructions

  •   Entry: The East gate (usual entry / exit) will be the ENTRY ONLY. It will be manned at all times and admin staff can be contacted there with any questions. The only exception is if a child must leave prior to the end of their session. In this case, the parent should come to the East gate and their child will be summoned.
  •  Exit: The South gate (located adjacent to the bathroom building along the long South fence) will be the EXIT ONLY. It will be closed at all other times and will only be manned when opened to release children. Parents are asked to line up respecting 6’ physical distancing from others and wearing a mask at all times.
  •  We ask that PARENTS DO NOT STAND ALONG THE FENCE DURING PRACTICE. There is not enough physical area for people to remain physically distanced, and more importantly, it will keep us from utilizing the turf space just inside the fence, an area we must use to ensure we give everyone in the program room to distance from one another.
  •  Pick up will be done in person only, no drive by pick up allowed. Just give your child’s initials and the coaches name when it is your turn.

Dana Middle School Field Specific Instructions

  • All Region 2 admin, coaches, players and their families are ONLY to enter the school from Santa Anita and we are not allowed to park in the school parking lot located on First Avenue. No exceptions.
  •  Once inside the gate on Santa Anita (on the basketball court black top), we ask that you ensure you practice physical distancing and that everyone wears a mask while they wait for entry, and at all times within the gates.
  •  We will use the interior gate entry onto the field to monitor the entry and exit of all program participants. This gate will be manned at all times.
  •  No one is to exit through the school campus and no parents, family or friends are to be on Dana’s campus at all (other than basketball courts).
  •  Pick up will be done in person only, no drive by pick up allowed. Just give your child’s initials and the coaches name when it is your turn.

Team Setup / Assigned Spaces

  • Your child will be assigned a fixed practice location / time. On the first day of the session, you will be given your assigned coach and location on the field.
  •  The fields will break down into color coded team zones and your assigned team zone will remain consistent for the duration of the program:
  •  Arcadia City Hall --- 8 Practice areas and distanced team zones:
    - Blue East, White East, Yellow East & Orange East (opposite entry gate)
    - Blue West, White West, Yellow West, Orange West (nearest entry gate)
  •  Dana Middle School --- 8 Practice areas and distanced team zones:
    - Blue East, White East, Yellow East & Orange East (nearest school)
    - Blue West, White West, Yellow West, Orange West (nearest Santa Anita)

Player Attire / Gear

  •  Uniforms will not be provided for this program. Players are to wear appropriate athletic wear including cleats. Shin guards are not required as there will be no contact. Players must be in all gear before gaining entry on to the field.
  •  Players are to have a face covering with them at all times with their initials clearly marked on it for easy identification. It should be worn whenever not actively participating in training.
  •  Players must have a ball with them at each practice in order to participate.
  •  Players must bring water with them --- and plenty of it --- water fountains will be off limits.
  •  We ask that no bags or other items be brought inside the gates with limited exceptions (such as an inhaler). Clear your items with the admin staff on site.
