What is Soccerfest?
Several years ago Area 11L discontinued the “All Stars” program and our region created a Soccerfest program. This unique AYSO event, takes place on a Saturday shortly after the completion of the Fall season. It symbolizes the purpose of AYSO and is a reward for players and coaches alike. Soccerfest is a one day event gear towards players who have exhibited excellence in sportsmanship, skills and committtment to the game. Each player will be placed on a team and play two games that Saturday. This day is for players who can commit to the whole day, not just one game.
Who Can Participate?
Every U9-U14 coach will nominate players from their Fall roster based on skill-set and sportsmanship, the Soccerfest Committee will select teams from the nominated players.
All participants will be provided a Soccerfest shirt and should wear dark shorts, socks, cleats and shinguards. Each player must print out the waiver form and bring it with them to on the day of the event. Click here for the waiver form.
Player check-in will take place one hour before the first scheduled game. Each game will be allotted a one hour time slot for two 20 minutes halves and a 5 minute half time break. Substitutions will be made at an appropriate time determined by the referee approximately one-half way through each period and at the beginning of the second half
This year Soccerfest will be held on Satruday, December 11th. Once the Soccerfest teams are formed, games will commence on the assigned fields as follows:
Girls teams formed at 8:00 a.m. will play games at 9:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m.
Boys teams formed at 9:00 a.m. will play games at 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.
Each Soccerfest team will play two games and will have a two-hour break in between games. This is a great time to cool down, socialize and make new soccer friends!
