San Marcos AYSO is dedicated to providing a fun, educational and safe youth sports experience.
We have a Youth Referee Program teaching the fundamentals of the game while creating a responsibility for our youth players.
Our region also has a V.I.P. program for children with special needs, for more info on V.I.P., see our V.I.P. page for details.
To ensure the "safe" part of the experience, players are asked to abide by the following:
· No earrings or jewelry are allowed, no exceptions.
· Metal and plastic hair ties or clips are not allowed, only soft "scrunchie" hair ties.
· Players with splints or casts of any kind are not permitted to practice or play in a game. Once the cast or splint is removed, the player must present a doctor's note releasing the player from medical restrictions. A soft joint brace may be worn at the discretion of the referee.
· Eye glasses, hearing aids and med-alert bracelets are allowed.
· Players must wear shinguards to practices and games or they cannot play.
· Cleats are not required, but are strongly recommended.
· Players must display good sportsmanship at all times. This includes showing respect to the referees. Only your team captain should approach a referee during game time with any concerns the team may have.
Play for the fun of playing, not to please anyone else. Be a good sport, cheer all the plays; for your team and the opposing team: this is good sportsmanship.
