What is a Select team?Players that were not selected for the All Star team have the option to play in the post-season by participating in other AYSO tournaments. All Star teams and Select team participate in these same tournaments. Select teams also participate in our Spring League. This is a great opportunity for players to improve their skills for the following season.
Players are expected to make a serious commitment to their select team. While some players are involved in other sports, we require that All Star/Select team practices and games take precedence over other teams or sports. Players need to make a decision to commit to the coach and the team, otherwise it is unfair to the other committed players. Players are selected and thus can be "un-selected" if a coach is having problems with a player or parent. These issues will be discussed with the Regional Commissioner before making a decision.
The select team program operates very differently than regular season. Each team is responsible for registering for leagues, applying to tournaments, and handling its own finances. Parents need to be financially responsible to the team. The coaches have enough to worry about and all parents are expected to help. Teams that provide certified referees have a better chance of being accepted into tournaments and also having referee deposits returned to the team.
What is the time commitment?
High level parent commitment is required. Weekly practices are required. Attendance is required. Teams can practice up to 3x per week if preparing for a tournament. Practices are not optional but required. Teams must have a minimum of three referees capable of refereeing in the respective age division. Volunteer support for our tournaments and spring league is also required.
Players purchase their uniforms $60 (estimate). There are no registration fees for the All Star Tournament including: Area 1P, “Sectionals” and Western State Championship. However, there are travel costs associated with teams that advance to “Sectionals” (Riverside) and Western State Finals held in Bullhead, AZ in 2016. Additionally, families should consider likely costs for food for player and family (during the tournaments) and possible new equipment costs if player out grows cleats from Fall Season
Are there other tournaments after All Star?
Registration approximately $40 - $50 per player/ per tournament. Teams typically attend 6-8 tournaments. Teams are expected to register for tournaments as a group. Funds are normally collected far in advance in order for teams to register for tournaments.
An estimated cost for the non-All Star Tournament season could be $1000-$1500 per player depending on family decisions related to travel costs and the number of tournaments each team plays.

What is the Select Tournament Cost?

Nutrition - What do I need to know?The All Star tournament is a higher level of competition. It requires higher level of training and preparation outside of weekly practice sessions. In order to compete at the higher levels, our players will need endurance which is aided by balanced nutrition to help them develop into athletes who can successfully compete in 2-3 day tournaments. Families should be aware that there is an expectation to build nutrition into each of our teams.
