Welcome to Region 112

Region 112 Safety

AYSO's highest priority is the safety and well-being of our children.  We aim to provide a safe and nurturing environment where they can play and have fun.  Safety can be achieved when all parties (Parents, Referees, Coaches, Guest visitors, field Monitors...) work responsibly to keep our kids and visitors safe from all danger.

Remember, Safety starts with you!

Drop-off/Pets on our Fields

Drop-off policy

It is strongly recommended that a player's parent or guardian be present during all AYSO games and practices.  If that is not possible, parents or guardians are required to inform the coach beforehand, preferably by email.

They must inform the coach:
  1. Who will be bringing their child.
  2. Who will be picking up their child.
  3. Who is responsible and should be contacted in case of injury or emergency during the game or practice.
  4. Contact numbers for all responsible persons who must be included.
When arriving at practices or games, parents must not drop off players at fields without contacting the coach.  This means the person responsible for your child must walk them to the coach.

Pets on AYSO fields

AYSO soccer is a family event and because may people consider their pets to be members of the family, they're inclined to bring them along to our fields for either practices or games.

It is important to remember that for safety reasons, pets are not allowed on AYSO fields.

Our goal is to make the soccer season as safe as possible and that's why we request that Region 112 participants leave their family pets at home.  In regard to the question of service animals being allowed on AYSO fields: a review of legal opinin and other similar issues confirms that AYSO is obligated to observe and respect existing regulations and laws regarding the presence of service animals, as declared by the animal's owner, at our fields. In California and under federal guidelines, public places are not required to admit emotional support animals even when they are required to do so for service animals, and there for are not permitted on AYSO fields.

AYSO will not request or inspect paperwork certifying the status of the service animal.  We thank you for your support.


Whenever a player or youth volunteer has suffered an injury or illness that required the care of a physician or a visit to an emergency care facility, the AYSO Participation release form must be completed in full and signed by the child's parents or guardians before the player or youth volunteer will be allowed to participate further in the program.  In addition, if a player was evaluated by a medical professional, for symptoms of concussion, the AYSO Concussion release form must be completed and signed by a medical professional.

These forms protect not only AYSO, but more importantly, the participants.  Players should not participate until they are full y healed and ready to play.  The AYSO Participation Release Form and/or the AYSO concussion release form must be completed and given to the Region 112 Safety Director before the return to participation in any AYSO activity.

Send the completed forms to:

what is a concussion?

A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury - or TBI - caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or by a hit to the body that causes the head and brain to move rapidly back and forth.  This sudden movement can cause the brain to bounce around or twist in the skull, stretching and damaging the brain cells and creating chemical changes in the brain.

When in Doubt, Pull Them Out!

Concussions Are Serious
Medical providers may describe a concussion as a "mild" brain injury because concussions are usually not life-threatening.  Even so, the effects of a concussion can be serious.

For more information and some really great resources, go to the CDC Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Heads up Concussion pages at: CDC “Heads Up” Concussion Action Plan.
