Registration / Team Formation
Q When does the season actually start?
  A • Generally team meetings and practices start in August. Please see the Division Information section below for specific dates.
Q When will I be contacted by a coach?
  A • The number one question we receive all summer. Please see the Division Information section below for specific dates.

• Please do not call inquiring about your coach until the dates listed for your player(s) Divisions.

• The Board will not distribute coach information. If a coach has failed to contact you by the dates listed we will take your information and follow up with the coach directly. This is a Privacy issue for our Volunteers.
Q I missed registration, can I still register my player?
  A • Here at Quartz Hill AYSO we strive to get as many kids playing soccer as possible so we will continue to register players as long as we have space to form complete teams.

• Please see our Registration page if you have any questions about Late Registration.

• Once teams have been formed, players on the waitlist will be added to the next available team if and when an opening occurs.
Q We can no longer participate, where can I get cancellation and possible refund information?
  A • Life events happen. If you can no longer participate please contact the Registrar right away.

• Our Refund Policy and request forms are located on our Website QHAYSO Refund Policy and Form

• Although we hate to see you go, we appreciate you letting us know as soon as possible if you need to drop for the season. We regularly have kids on a waitlist or direct them to other regions when we run out of space.
Q Why doesn't Quartz Hill AYSO allow for Coach, Same-team or Age-up requests?
  A • AYSO is a National Soccer Association that is guided by 6 Philosophies. One of these being "Balanced Teams." AYSO Regions are mandated to balance teams to the best of their abilities. It is imperfect, but it is a task we work really hard to achieve. Both National Recommendations and Local Experience demonstrate that allowing numerous special requests erodes both the ability to provide Balanced Teams and creates doubt that everyone is playing by the same rules.

• Our Policy is that there will be no Same-team or Age-Up requests granted.

• Volunteer Coaches will be paired with their children, but outside requests for a specific coach will not be granted.

• On very rare occasions an exception has been made, but these result from truly extrordinary circumstances and occur in less than 5 out of the 1,700+ kids we have registered each fall.
