Yorba Linda/Placentia - Region 1398

Programs to Register For

AYSO Region 1398 currently offers Core (recreational) Fall and Spring seasons, All Star season, summer and seasonal camps, for children ages 3 to 16. We also have Extra (select) year round seasons and tournaments.

*Please note that when you register for any season or camp there are non-refundable AYSO National fee of $20, paid once a year, and a $2.75 service fee for each registration. AYSO 1398 has no control over these fees. 


Recreational (Core) Program:
Fall Core program runs from August to November and Spring Core runs from February to May. This program is for ages 3-15. Registration for Spring Season is open through FEBRUARY 15, 2023.  There are discounts for multi-family players.  Regular registration is December 1st to January 31st 2023. Registration after January 31st will not guarantee players a spot on a team.  Practices will begin in February.

Volunteer coaches, referee, team parents and field support are needed for this program. The best way to guarantee a spot for your child on a team is to register as a coach. 
 The U6 and U8 teams practice once a week and play games in Yorba Linda or Placentia on Saturday morning.  The U10 - U16 practice twice a week and play games on Saturdays. U10 games will be held primarily in Yorba Linda, with very little travel. For our U12-U16 division, half of all games will be in Yorba Linda or Placentia, with travel to other neighboring regions in Orange County. 

Registration includes uniform (jersey, shorts and socks), insurance, pictures, practice and game field costs. If you have any questions, please contact [email protected].

At the conclusion of the Fall recreational season, we offer the All-Star program (via tryouts) to boys and girls, ages 10U to 12U. In order to be eligible, the player must have been on a Fall Rec team for at least half the season. This season, we will have a U10B, U10G, U12B and U12G participating in the program.

The All-Star program prepares players to advance to more competitive levels of play. Our region plays against other All-Star teams within Area Q in January.

There are usually 8 games over 4 weeks. Each Saturday, they will have two games - one home and one away (in one of our neighboring regions). We expect players to represent the region by competing with effort and sportsmanship. The winners of the season in each division progress on to the Sectional All Star tournament, in mid to late February.

The All-Star program is a more advanced level of play than the Fall primary season, thus requiring a greater commitment from the player. We expect players in our All-Star program to make the program their top sports priority during this season. This is from late November through early February. We don't mind if the player is involved in other sports, only that conflicts are resolved in favor of the All-Star team.

Practices may start shortly after Thanksgiving and will continue through the season. You can expect two practices per week. Teams may play pre-season or post-season tournaments as well.

Once try-outs are completed, your division's all-star coach will personally invite players to the team. This is done either in person, via email, or by phone. If you are invited, you will also get an email from our website, asking you to complete the registration, including payment. Website registration needs to be completed before being assigned to a team.

AYSO National Games
LET THE GAMES BEGIN!” That’s the traditional phrase that has been proclaimed at the start of each AYSO National Games since the very first venue location in Irvine, CA, in 1988.

Core Program

This is the primary program of AYSO Region 1398 that includes all ages and most players.  Teams are put together in a way that makes playing soccer about the experience, not wins or losses. It’s not about blowing out another team with an unbelievable score;  it’s about sportsmanship and learning to be the best possible team mate and opponent.  Developing players is what we’re about, because soccer skills and life skills go hand in hand. AYSO Region 1398's main purpose is to get kids on the field, provide them with good coaches, and teach them to play soccer.

Playground Soccer-Parent and Me Program (3 years old at the start of fall) = $75

Buddies assist during the games in which players learn soccer while meeting new friends, having fun and increasing skills and self-esteem. Players and their families, along with the volunteers, enjoy the complete AYSO experience – team uniforms, scoring goals, cheering from the sidelines, and the list goes on!

All divisions = $70.00 ($50 for player fee; $20.00 for AYSO National Fee)

EXTRA Program

EXTRATM gives athletes whose interests and abilities lead them to a more progressive soccer experience. You can feel secure knowing your child is part of a trusted organization and will be given fair playing time. EXTRATM doesn’t take away from the regular program, but adds to the strength of the organization by keeping players and their families in AYSO.
