PLEASE READ FOR IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT TEAM PLACEMENT

Players are assigned to teams by the Division Coordinators prior to the start of the season. At that time, as much information as is available on player skills is used to provide evenly balanced teams for the season.

Players may not request to be placed on a particular team. Except for the following, AYSO Region 473 will not guarantee placement:

Coaches will be placed on the same team as their children unless otherwise requested;

Siblings within the same Division may be placed on the same team;

Placement for good cause shown

Although these guidelines may surprise many parents, especially in the older divisions, where the pattern of being on the same team with the same coach season after season has been established for some time, they are not new. The reality is that honoring these requests inevitably leads to imbalance within the divisions, which makes the playing experience a negative one for all involved. Please understand that the division coordinators are doing their best to ensure balanced teams and a positive experience for everyone.
