All Spring Season games will be played on full size grass fields on Friday night (7 PM) at Pleasant Valley Fields Sports Complex (PVF) in Camarillo under lights. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to be placed on list to be notified when spring season registration is open.
Spring REGISTRATION will be via online system (see REGISTRATION page). Players can still register after the teams are formed and the games start. Players will be added to teams or placed on a waiting list.
Spring Season will consist of about 10 weekly games. Each week’s game are played on Friday night during March and May. All Friday night games will start at 7 PM. All games scheduled to be played at Pleasant Valley Fields (PVF) sports complex. Back up site is Woodcreek Park (only used for possible rain out make up games). Players are assigned to teams. League provides team jersey and socks. Players must wear shin guards.
NOTE: All games at played at PVF require all players and referees to wear ‘turf’’ type shoes. NO cleat shoes allowed at PVF (for adults). Cleat shoes can be used at Woodcreek Park.
Games are 11 versus 11 on grass fields (90 minute game time) with full size goals. We have paid experienced referee teams for each game. Each team has a team captain to help make sure everyone is playing and having a good time. Games are played with ‘free substitution’. So players can check in and out of the play as often as they want when they want. Goals scored by females are counted as two points. Note that a fair number of the league goals were scored by the ladies.
The league also uses a concept we call ‘protected player’ status during the game. The intent is to provide some protected time for new inexperienced players to learn some basic ball handling skills when first receiving a pass (outside of the opposing team’s penalty area). Any inexperienced player can decide (optional) if they want to use ‘protected player’ status during a game. ‘Protected players’ are identified by one white sock (along the other sock representing the team) during the game. More details will be provided at the pre-game meeting.
Players can register at any time once the registration is open (pre-season or during the season). But players signing up after the teams are formed are only placed on teams as space is available. If no space is available they are placed on a waiting list. Players can register via cell phones at the games if team space is still available.
Note that $30 of the Registration cost goes to National AYSO. This National AYSO fee covers the player until August 31, 2019. Returning players from the Fall 2018 season for the Spring 2019 will NOT have to pay this $30 National AYSO fee again.NOTE: League will provide team jersey and socks to all players. Players must provide own shorts and shin guards. All players are required to wear shin guards to play.
