The U16 and U19 divisions participate in the ASYO Area 2N Fall League. 


SCAYSO follows the FIFA, AYSO, Area 2N and SCAYSO rules for the games. SCAYSO has the "3 quarter per game" rule. Each player on a team has to play 3 quarters before any other player on the same team may play 4 quarters. The total number of players in a given age group and the number of coaches have an affect on our ability to maintain this rule.


U5 & U6 Games

The U5 & U6 games are "small-sided" 3 v 3.  There are no goalkeepers.  The ball size is 3. There are no team standings or end of season tournaments. The U5 & U6 division uses Tierra Linda Middle School for their games.



U8 Games

The U8 games are "small-sided" 7v7 with no goalkeepers.  It's been found that having no goalkeepers forces the kids to continue to develop their defensive skills, and actually does not generally cause too many goals to be scored.   The ball size is 3. There are no team standings or end of season tournaments. The U8 division uses Arguello and Laureola Parks and Central Middle School for their games.

Fall League Tournaments

Knickerbocker-Masters Cup Tournament

In the winter of 1969 only about one hundred AYSO players could be found scattered across Northern California .  AYSO came to San Carlos in 1974, with just a few teams, under Emmett MacCorkle.  In 1976, the San Carlos Region was chartered under the national organization by Dick Knickerbocker and was recognized to operate within the city boundaries of the City of San Carlos .  

In 1991, for the first time, San Carlos had over 1,000 children in the program, and currently we have grown to approximately 1,600 kids!  We are the beneficiaries of the effort, skill, know-how, good will and wonderful positive attitudes of many people over the years. 

The Knickerbocker-Masters Cup Tournament is intended to celebrate those individuals.  This annual tournament was named after Dick Knickerbocker who served as commissioner for seven years and Bob Masters who was on AYSO’s board for 8 years and was Regional Commissioner from 1986 to 1988.  

Starting in 2008, a new Knickerbocker-Masters Cup tournament format was created for the U10 division.  Each team now plays 4 shorter games in a round-robin group stage format with points awarded to each team rather than just a simple victory or defeat.  The end result is a full day of fun for all U10 players and their families.  This years U10 Knickerbocker-Masters Cup tournament will be held at Burton Park on October 13, 2012 (boys) and October 14, 2012 (girls).   Please contact Rob Walker if you have any questions about the U10 Knickerbocker-Masters Cup tournament.
