Fall Core Program

Fall Core Program

The Fall season is the primary program for Region 214 soccer. Approximately 2,000 players ranging from 4 to 18 years of age play on over 220 teams in 10-11 matches from late August through November each year, including playoffs for older divisions (specific dates vary by year.) The majority of our players live in South Pasadena and San Marino, but players from nearby cities are welcome as registration is open to all players.

  • All players are part of balanced teams and we require new players in upper divisions to attend a player evaluation session.
  • All players play 3/4 of each game attended, except in rare cases where team size allows only 1/2.


If you need assistance with online registration, then please come to our walk up registration In June, TENTATIVELY AT Arroyo Vista Elementary School, 335 El Centro St, South Pasadena, CA 91030.  We will also do birth certificate verifications and ID checks for volunteers.

Our goal is to complete most registrations online. In some cases we will need to meet with you before we can register your player. In the following situations we will require you to meet with us at one of the registration events:

  • We need to verify your players Date of Birth (DOB)
  • We need to verify a volunteer

NOTE: The fall season is a Open Registration and we will try to place every applicant on a team, unfortunately in some situations we will not be able to place players due to a lack of volunteers. Team formation requires Coaches, Referees and Team Parents, players will be turned away if we do not have sufficient volunteers. Consider volunteering in one of these key roles, training is available.

Frequently Asked Questions...

What division will my child play in?

Players will be placed in divisions by birth year. In some younger divisions these divisions are single year groups, in older divisions, two birth years are combined.  We do not deviate from birth year for the Fall Core Program. CLICK HERE.


What if my child can't attend their team's practice time?

As an all volunteer organization, only the coach determines the team's practice time. If you can't coach, options for parents whose children are unable to attend their team's regular practice are:

  1. Practice with another team and play games with your assigned team. The Region can guide you to a practice that may fit your schedule.
  2. Not attend practices, but play games with your assigned team.
  3. Drop to the waitlist and wait for a spot to open on another team. And while our goal is to place every child who registers, competitive balance is the first consideration when filling those openings, and your player is not guaranteed placement.

Can I choose my child's teammates?

Balanced teams is a core philosophy of the AYSO program.  AYSO does not take player requests.  We are all volunteers and we attempt to be accomodating, however, our first commitment is to creating a fun, safe and fair environment with balanced teams.   

What if my child no longer wants to play?

Refund requests must be made by submitting the online refund request form.

Full refunds for any reason will be issued for requests made before June 15th.
