San Carlos AYSO - Region 107


SPRING 2024 Soccer

Our spring soccer program is run by UK International soccer coaches. The program consists of 1 to 2 practices per week and a scrimmage on Sundays. The season starts March 25, 2024 and ends June 9, 2024. The weekday training sessions will be at Heather Elementary School, while the Sunday scrimmages will be Central Middle School.

Please register here! Since the program is run by UK International, please direct any questions to [email protected].


Registration for the fall 2024 season is coming soon! 

Volunteers! San Carlos AYSO is run entirely by volunteers - all coaches, refs, team parents, and board members are San Carlos volunteers. We hope that everyone can contribute to help share the load of organizing our program. To register as a volunteer, click on "Volunteer" on the left hand side of your account page and then click on "Find volunteer roles".


On January 1, 2022 California law AB506 came into effect. This state law requires all volunteers working with minors to be fingerprinted as part of the LiveScan program. A few notes on LiveScan:

1. The LiveScan fingerprinting only needs to be done once ever per volunteer organization. Therefore if someone did it from another program, they still need to do it again for AYSO. 

2. The LiveScan is in addition to the typical Sterling background check. The LiveScan is only once ever, while Sterling background check is required annually.

3. We will have a LiveScan event at HomeTown days (see below)

4. If you are unable to make any of the hosted LiveScan events, you can do it at any time at a participating UPS store.

5. AYSO will directly cover the cost of the LiveScan at the hosted events. If you go to the UPS store it is $25, but AYSO will reimburse you.

Live Scan at Hometown Days: To be determined

1. The LiveScan booth will be open from 11am to 3pm on Saturday only

Mask policy

As of right now, masks are optional for players, coaches, and spectators for all divisions, regardless of vaccination status. This policy is consistent with guidelines from California Department of Public Health (CDPH), San Carlos Parks and Rec Department, and San Mateo County. It is also consistent with the San Carlos public schools. Please note that this policy may change over the course of the season if the above guidelines change.



SCAYSO provides recreational level soccer for the kids in San Carlos and neighboring cities.  The Fall League has both boys and girls age appropriate divisions.  Kids from 3 years old to 18 years of age may participate. 

The AYSO fall league starts the weekend after Labor Day for the 4U - 6U, late August for 7U - 14U, and early August for the 16U/19U division. The season runs until early November for most divisions.

Age Divisions

Please see the Matrix of Play for more details, however below is basic information:

- Learning to play: Playground, 5U, 6U

- Developmental Leagues: 7U, 8U, 10U, 12U

- Area Play: 14U, 16U, 19U


The 4U playground program focuses on basic motor skills in a soccer oriented fun environment. The program is conducted by our guest professional coaches and is designed by child development and soccer experts to give your child a foundation for sports success.  Your player will hop, skip, jump, run, throw, balance, kick.....and play. There are no actual soccer games. The group meets on Saturday mornings for an hour, typically around 9 am. 

5U and 6U

The 5U and 6U programs are also early development programs. Players are divided into teams. The programs consist of a 30 minute practice followed by a 30 minute game on Saturday mornings (there are no weekday practices). 5U typically goes mid-morning on Saturdays, while 6U is late morning or early afternoon (depending on the number of teams). The games are “small-sided” 3v3 or 4v4 and there are no goalkeepers. The ball size is 3. There are no team standings or end of season tournaments. 

7U and 8U

The 7U and 8U divisions have 1 practice per week and a game on Saturdays. The game time on Saturday will vary from week to week, but will be in the morning or early afternoon. The 7U & 8U games are “small-sided” 5v5 or 6v6 with no goalkeepers.

10U through 14U

The 10U through 14U divisions have two practices per week and a game on Saturdays. Each team will be given one “early” and one “late” practice time.  10U and 12U also have two tournaments during the season. After Daylight Savings the teams will only have their “early” practice once a week.  The 12U & 14U divisions may have games scheduled with other regions within AYSO Area 2N.

The 10U games are “small-sided” 7v7. A player may be a goalkeeper for 1 or 2 quarters per game and must fulfill the 3 quarter per game rule by playing in another position. The ball size is 4. There are no team standings.  All teams are eligible for the end of season tournaments.

The 12U games are 9v9. A player may be a goalkeeper for 1 or 2 quarters per game and must fulfill the 3 quarter per game rule by playing in another position. The ball size is 4. There are team standings. All teams are eligible for the end of season tournaments.

The 14U games are full 11v11. The “3-quarter” rule must be fulfilled before a goalkeeper can play 4 quarters. The ball size is 5. There are team standings. All teams are eligible for the end of season tournaments. The 14U games are played at Crestview Park.


The 16U/19U games are full 11v11. All FIFA, AYSO and Area 2N rules apply. The “3-quarter” rule must be fulfilled before a goalkeeper can play 4 quarters. Yellow and Red cards may be issued. There are team standings. All teams are eligible for the end of season tournament. The 16U/19U teams play in the Area 2N league. The 16U/19U home games are played at Highlands Park. The 16U and 19U 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.

Fall League Tournaments

Knickerbocker-Masters Cup Tournament (10U - 14U)

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 1,500 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 10U 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 10U players and their families.  The 10U Knickerbocker-Masters Cup Tournament is held at Burton Park in October (dates to be determined) with Boys playing on Saturday and Girls playing on Sunday (alternate each year).

San Carlos AYSO City Championship Tournament

The City Championship Tournament is for 10U through 14U Boys and Girls.
