Once again, it’s time to start thinking soccer. We at Greater Lakeland American Youth Soccer Organization (GLAYSO) have already begun to prepare for another great soccer season.
GLAYSO’s soccer registration will be held Tuesday, April 15, and Wednesday, April 16, in the 3-5 Computer Room at AVW School in Woodruff from 5– 7 p.m.
You can sign up your child online at www.GLAYSO.org. Follow the website prompts and instructions to register a new or continuing player or volunteer. Sign up online and print out your registration, bring a signed copy with you to save time at registration.
Bring one copy and fees for a registered player, and two copies for a registered volunteer. If these registration dates don’t work for you, please register online and have another parent bring in your completed forms and fees.
Who can play soccer in GLAYSO? Registrants must be four years old by July 31, through all age levels up to those entering 8th grade next fall (regardless of age).
Register on time and save money on the registration fee. If you register your child on or before April 16, the fees will be $25 for four and five year olds, $50 for six year olds and above, with a family maximum of $125.
Please note that if you register after April 16, an additional $30 per child will be added, with a family maximum of $215, and registrations will only be accepted if there is space available on a team in your player’s division.
Register on the registration nights at AV-W to guarantee your player another fun soccer season.
We are an all-volunteer organization. To make each season a success requires 15 board members, 15 field maintenance workers, 44 coaches, 44 assistant coaches, 20 referees and 10 year-end tournament workers.
If you have volunteered in the past, we thank you. You know how rewarding it is to make this great opportunity available to our youth.
If you haven’t, please recognize that the success of this program varies directly with the dedication, experience and quantity of volunteers dedicated to the program. You can actively participate in making your player’s soccer experience a great one.
Many hesitate because of their lack of soccer expertise, but the beauty of AYSO soccer is that training is provided for all volunteer positions. No previous experience is required, and you learn more about the game and the players with each practice or game. Please offer to volunteer in whatever way you can to help ensure another successful season for our kids.
