Winter 2020 Greetings

Hello Croton AYSO families,

We hope your new year is off to a great start! The spring season is a couple months away and the AYSO board members and coaches are in the midst of coordinating logistics. In the meantime, a few reminders & updates:

  • Registration is for the full 2019/2020 academic year and includes both Fall ’19 and Spring ’20 seasons. If you played in the fall, there’s no need to re-register as you’re already enrolled for the spring season.
  • Same teams, same coaches for Spring ’20 as in Fall ’19
  • Practice times generally stay the same pending coach availability
  • The season is expected to run from early April to mid June; exact dates will be shared once confirmed.
  • Registration for new players is open year round for the VIP (Very Important Player/Special Needs) and Under 5/Jamboree divisions. For all other divisions (U6-U14), we maintain a first come, first serve waitlist with activation off of waitlist pending space availability. To register for VIP/U5 or U6-U14 waitlists for the spring season, please go to the registration tab (https://crotonsoccer.org/information/registration/) for information and link to online registration platform.

For more updates, please check back on this site and follow Croton AYSO on Facebook.

Thank you!

Season Starts for Croton AYSO CORE

Hello Croton AYSO families,

Welcome back to fall soccer! We’re excited to start the Croton AYSO CORE fall season and hope everyone enjoys the first day. All registered players should have received team assignments and practice times from their coaches. We have an active waitlist for all divisions (excluding VIP & U5 which are year round enrollment) and we will contact waitlist players if space opens up throughout the season.

Uniforms will be distributed during opening weekend. Since the old Croton uniform has been officially retired, we are coordinating a uniform drive to donate gently used team sets to communities who can reuse the gear. We’ll send more information out on that soon and if you’d like to help, please let us know at reg@crotonsoccer.org.

As a reminder, all players should come to every practice/game with water, cleats, shin guards and the appropriate size soccer ball (size 3 for U5/U6/U7/U8, size 4 for U10/U12, size 5 for U14).

Finally, if you haven’t already, please sign up for the RainedOut notification system (sign up button is on the right side of the http://www.crotonsoccer.org home page) to receive alerts on field closings and practice/game cancellations. 

Thank you and looking forward to a great soccer season,

Croton AYSO Board

The waitlist is open for all other U6-U14 players who did not register but would still like to play. Activation off the waitlist is dependent on space availability and on a first come, first served basis. To sign up for the waitlist, please register on our online platform (https://www.ayso455.org/region455).
