SPRING SEASON SIGNUPS!

Recently, the website has had a flood of comments and messages left by parents wanting to know how/if they can sign up for the spring season.

The person running the website does not control that, have access to that or make any decisions regarding that.  There is a message on this page about a March 20th meeting for parents of U10 children (U10 = 10 and under, U8 = 8 and under, U12 = you get the idea).  Try to go there, even if your child might be better for one of the other age ranges.  The people who CAN help you will be there.  Or in any number of postings on this site, you can find Chris Ridley’s  and Dave Brown’s telephone number — you may call them.  Thanks and good luck

Coach Meetings – End of March

Aloha AYSO Family,

Hilo AYSO is gearing up for a great Spring Season.  Coach Meetings will be occurring at the end of March.

Our values include:

Balanced teams (so each game has a chance of being a tie!)

Open registration (so anyone can register and the team will accommodate the player)

Positive coaching (so every player hears positive comments during practice and games)

Player development (so every player can continue to grow in skill at their own pace)

Everyone plays (so every player plays on the field three-quarters of every game)

Good sportsmanship (so every player is rewarded for playing positively whether winning or losing).

Hilo AYSO supports a FUN, FAIR, SAFE, POSITIVE experience.

We are a non-profit, parent and volunteer-run program where the children come first.  We provide classes for parents to attend to learn coaching and refereeing.

This is your program.  What happens each season is up to every parent.  Consider registering as a volunteer atwww.eayso.org, print two copies, sign them and mail them to AYSO PO Box 5000 Hilo HI 96720.

If you have questions feel free to contact Dave Brown, Regional Commissioner at 936-6927 or Chris Ridley, Child and Volunteer Protection Advocate at 443-7360.

Aloha and have a great season,

Dave Brown

Regional Referee Class – March 8th

Aloha All

There will be a regional referee class Saturday, March 8th, from 3:30 – 6:30 at Amau`ulu field. Before you attend you need to register as a volunteer on eayso.org if you haven’t already done so.  You will be given a registration number which you will then use to take the on-line portion of the referee class at www.aysotraining.org.  The class is open to all who are interested in refereeing, including players,  and is taught by Kevin Purell of the Area Referee staff.  We are always in need of more, qualified referees so now is your chance to get the training and certification you will need.  Please make every effort to attend.

To get to the field, take Kamehameha Avenue going towards Hamakua, go straight through the Waianuenue Avenue light and turn left with the road as it bends, the Wailuku River is on your right.  Come to the stop and go straight going behind the downtown post office.  Turn right onto Wainaku Street and over the bridge.  Go one block and turn left onto Amau`ulu Road.  Go straight up the road and you will come to a 4 way intersection.  The soccer field is just to the left of Amau`ulu Road as it continues straight up.

If you have any questions about the class or certification process, please call the Region Referee Administrator, Sean Knell, at 345-6162.

Spring Season Signups!

Hi AYSO family,

I hope you had a wonderful Fall Season.  I trust that everyone experienced a fun, fair, safe, positive environment. We are now preparing for spring 2014.  The first Game will be April 5th and last game will be June 7th.

We have scheduled three registration dates @ the AYSO pavilion:

  • Tuesday, November 12, 4-6 pm
  • Thursday, November 21, 4-6 pm
  • Monday, November 25, 4-6 pm

Although there are no additional fees for players who played in the fall, parents need to come and confirm the player will be participating in the spring.  In addition, any friends who did not participate in the fall but would like to play in the spring can sign up at this time also.

Parents need to come one of the registration dates to sign our roster confirming your child’s spring participation.  There will be a free AYSO Tournament t-shirt, one per parent who comes to registration, while supplies last.

Aloha,

Chris Ridley 443-7360

Select Season Reminder

SELECT BLAST REMINDER 11/4/13

Select Blast to Families – 9/8/13

We want you!  Hilo Region 274 encourages all 8-18 year old AYSO players (U10-U19) to participate in select tournament season.  Please read this email and proceed to apply for your player to participate in the select/tournament season.

AYSO Region 274 has two regular seasons: Fall & Spring.  During these seasons, teams are balanced by skill level and age and are assigned to the coaches by the region.  For division U10, U12, U14, & U16/19 there is also a select season following the fall.

For the AYSO Select Season, the Region 274 Board asks for prospective select coach and player applicants.  After the coach application deadline, the board then selects coaches at the November 7th meeting to best represent the region based on the coach’s experience, certification level, and adherence to the AYSO principles.

The coaches in turn then select the players for their teams from the list of eligible players who have applied.  These teams will participate in the Winter Season, Kirk Banks Tournament and Summer Tournaments (i.e. Volcano Invitational.).

A separate email has been sent to coaches in the requesting applications.  This email is to request the player applications. Unlike prior years when no action was required, beginning with this select season, players will be required to indicate their desire to play. There is no additional registration fee.

To apply, send an email with player’s full name and words “YES SELECT” to brownd071@hawaii.rr.lcom by November 8th NOW.

The Select Season begins after the AYSO Fall Season, in late December or early January.  Once coaches form their teams and complete the required paperwork, they can begin practicing.  The Winter Season which runs from the end of January through March allows the select season teams on the Big Island to compete with one another.  Each region takes turn hosting games so teams will travel to Waimea, Kona, Puna, and Hilo to play.  After the winter season, the Kirk Banks Tournament is held on Oahu during Spring Break (usually 3-4 days in late March/early April).

After Kirk Banks, the Hilo AYSO Spring regular season runs from April to June during which the select teams suspend practice.  After the Spring Season ends in June, the select team can resume practicing in preparation for the summer tournaments.  In addition to Big Island tournaments, the teams may also participate in the off-island tournaments held on Maui, Oahu, Kauai and the mainland as decided by the team, coaches, and parents.

Although still AYSO, there is a higher level of play expected during the select season.  This is because unlike the traditional AYSO season with balanced teams, the collective skill level of the players present on the select team is greater.  This facilitates a higher level of competition and requires a commitment from the players and parents.  Coaches expect players to attend all scheduled practices and games.  In AYSO tournaments, the standard requirement is that a player must play at least 2 quarters of the game.

Unlike AYSO Fall or Spring, the Select season teams must be self-sufficient.  A team bank account must be set up which requires a team treasurer.  All team expenses must be paid for by the team (parent contribution, donations, or fundraisers).  Other team requirements include: travel arrangements to and from tournaments and games (i.e. flights, hotel accommodations, transportation, etc.), team uniforms must be ordered, game refreshments & snack schedules, and sportsmanship gifts for opponents obtained.  If everyone contributes, the experience will be easier.
