Spring Soccer is an AYSO program that begins in February and ends in May or June. Unlike the fall season, where teams are created by the Division Commissioner, Spring coaches form their own teams by contacting players who played in Region 1422 in the fall. Based on the number of All-Star and AYSO Plus players the coach has recruited, teams are placed in either the "Orange County Spring League (OCSL)" or "Recreational" league, and then play other teams throughout Orange County. In addition, some teams augment their season by entering tournaments.
The 2007 Spring Season will involve only Area 11L teams. This will reduce some of the traveling we've experienced in recent years.
Fee: $35 Administration fee per player plus cost of uniform (amount determined
by teams selection).
Teams pay for all tournaments.
Head coach or Assistant coach in the Fall
2006 season. Proper coaching certification for the age group and Safe

Three (3) categories of Spring teams (per Area 11-L
Tournament (play tournaments ONLY)
Recreational (Comp. & Rec. participate in Area 11-L scheduled Spring program)
Competitive and Recreational teams may participate in tournaments before and after the scheduled season ONLY. Competitive and Recreational teams will be seeded by each Region according to the following schedule.
Comp. Seed 1 (Plus teams and those teams comprising
a high number of All Star players).
Comp. Seed 2 (all other Competitive teams). All U19/U16 teams are considered seed 1.
Rec. seed 1 (4-6 All Star/Plus players in U12-U14
and 3-5 All Star players in U10).
Rec. seed 2 (3 or less All Star/Plus players in U12-U14 and 2 or less All Star players in U10).
NOTE: Any player who has played Club soccer (for a club other than PSC-S) and also who has satisfied the requirement of playing 50% of the 2006 AYSO Fall season shall be considered an "impact" player (= All Star/Plus player) and must play on a Competitive team ONLY.
NOTE: Any player who has played Club soccer on a PSC-S team during the Fall 2006 season may NOT play on an Area 11-L Spring League team without prior removal from the PSC-S team roster as well as having obtained prior approval from the AD/PSC-S President and the applicable RC. If approval is granted, such player shall be considered an "impact" player and must play on a Competitive team ONLY.
on Plus/All Star teams that choose to stay together for the spring season:
The lower 1/2 of the U10 in the points standings may be a better fit seeded as a 2 despite the number of Plus/All Star players. The lower 1/3 of the U12-U14 teams in the points standings may be a better fit seeded as a 2 as well.
The seeding guidelines are simply guidelines and not meant to be hard-line rules. You as a coach must decide on which bracket you would like to be a part of.
Each coach may select any age appropriate
child who played in Region 1422 in the fall. Players may not be contacted for
