The Camarillo recreational coed adult soccer league was started in 2010. Our league
is part of the new North American Adult Soccer Association (NAASA). NAASA is part
of AYSO. While AYSO handles the youth players, NAASA was formed by AYSO to handle
the adult players. Our local league is numbered CA0065 by NAASA. Note that NAASA
CA0065 (over 18 years old program) is a separate region and program from the local
AYSO Region 68 which runs the youth AYSO program in Camarillo. To learn more about
AYSO Region 68 see the Links page. Our adult coed soccer league had 4 teams in the
Fall 2010 and Spring 2011 season and 6 teams in the Fall 2011 and Spring 2012 season.
League had some 130 players during the Fall 2012 season and had to expand to 8 teams.
NAASA CA0065 is a recreational coed adult soccer program. No minimum requirement
of soccer or physical skill is required. The only requirement is that you come out
to have some fun. The intent is to play soccer on Sunday and then go to work on Monday.
This is NOT a league for players who are trying to show how they would play semi-pro
soccer. Individuals who are trying to play semi-pro or serious soccer SHOULD NOT
APPLY. This league has a wide range of players with different skill levels. Some
players have never played soccer before, while other players are highly skilled.
Our intent is to have friends and family members playing while enjoying the game.
All players must agree to our ‘Fair Play Pledge’. The ‘Fair Play Pledge’ covers basic
safety and sportsmanship rules of the league. Anyone not willing to follow this philosophy
will be removed from the league with no refund of fees. The following are some of
the violations of our rules that result in permanent removal from the league:
Frequent or flagrant use of foul language
Fighting (regardless of who started it)
“Dirty” play, including but not limited to taunting both verbally and physically,
or retaliating for an earlier perceived injustice
Consistent dissent with officials, including the league board
Refusal to abide by decisions or requests of the officials, including the league
Use of alcohol, tobacco, or any controlled substance on or around an AYSO facility
We reserve the right to determine any other causes for removal at the discretion
of the league board based on the severity of the offense.
Players are assigned to teams to create balanced teams. No existing teams are allowed
to enter the league as a team. There will be a limited number of teams. Applications
received after the teams are formed are placed on teams with space available or placed
on a waiting list. Players can play with relatives and request to play with a friend.
Games are refereed by NAASA certified referees, who are paid per game. Note that
AYSO Intermediate and National referees can register as a NAASA referee for free.
League registration fees are used to pay the fixed NAASA player fee ($30), team uniforms
and field expenses (including the game referees). The league is an non-profit organization.
Board members are volunteers (not paid). The league partners with Pleasant Valley
Recreation & Park District (PVRPD) to provide this program. The league thanks the
PVRPD for their help and support.
