AYSO Region 363 Guidelines for All-Star Team, Coach and Tournament Team


Participation in Area and Sectional All-Star play provides an opportunity for our athletes and coaches to challenge themselves at a higher level of competition. Our goal is to select from those interested players and coaches, a team that can effectively compete while representing the best interests of AYSO and our Region.

Conflict with National, Section, and/or Area Guidelines

To the extent that these guidelines conflict with applicable National, Section, or Area Guidelines, these regional guidelines are superseded.

Coach Selection

Only registered coaches with AYSO age-appropriate training, Safe-Haven Certification, Concussion Awareness Training, SafeSport, adherence to the ¾ rule of play every week, and demonstrating the AYSO philosophy will be considered. Subject to the approval of the Regional Commissioner, the Post-season Director, in conjunction with the Regional Board, shall select an eligible and qualified all-star coach from the applications received. The Division Coordinators must ensure all their coaches have an equal opportunity to express their interest in being considered. All-star coaches’ application form is due October 21, 2023.

An All-star coach may not be the principal coach of more than one All-star or league team participating in post- season play except with the permission of the Regional Commissioner.

At the discretion of the Regional Commissioner, if the selected All-Star coach or assistant coach does not follow the guidelines set forth in this Handbook and All-Star Coach Handbook, that coach or assistant coach (and possibly his/her child) will be removed from participating in the All-Star program.

Player & Family Commitment 

Participation in All-Stars involves a significant commitment of time and must be given priority over other activities other than school and participation on a play-off team. Practices and tournaments are held around the holidays. Travel outside of region 363 fields may be required.  Players failing to live up to their commitment may have a negative impact on their team’s chances. 

All-Star Player Selection

All-Star coaches will be responsible for selecting their team of players to the satisfaction of the Post-Season Director and the following criteria:

·          Can properly represent our region in Area and Section play.

·          Consistently demonstrates good sportsmanship.

·          Has a commitment to soccer (both player and family).

·          Demonstrates “All-Star” level of soccer ability.

·          Participated in 70% of that season’s regional season matches, either playing or cheering in accordance with the Adequate Participation Policy.

·          Is a member of a Primary Program Region 363 team at the end of the current regional season and played in the division for which he/she is being selected.

Pursuant to Section 10 Guidelines, All-star teams, except 16U/19U, may not be formed until November 15th. Player nominations/ recommendations may be received by October 21st. All-Star team nominations and formation for 16U/19U will be as determined by the Section 10 Board.

10U teams can have up to 10 players, 12U teams up to 12 players, and 14U teams up to 15 players. All players shall be players from the Moorpark AYSO regular (core) season. Final rosters are subject to the approval of the Regional Commissioner and Area Director.

In the event of multiple teams being formed in one division, the teams will populate their roster in order of priority (Team A, Team B, Team C, etc.). Once teams are formed and rosters are submitted, players may not transfer between teams unless a team is disbanded or both coaches and the Post-Season Director approve. Additional players may be added to rosters after formation provided, they played during the Moorpark AYSO regular (core) season.


To avoid disappointing players, all aspects of the All-Star selection process must be kept confidential. Coaches should not discuss who they nominated, who was selected as a player for any team or who was selected as an alternate until AFTER the Veterans Memorial Championship on November 11th.  The Head Coaches will then notify families that their players have been invited to play on the All-Star team.  This process may take several days to complete.

All-Star Season

The Area 10E all-star tournament normally runs for 3 sequential weekends in January and February at Conejo Creek and/or Arroyo Vista. Successful teams may be invited to the Section 10 all-star tournament in Bakersfield, generally at the end of February. Teams are strongly recommended to enter tournament(s) before the Area 10E tournament (local tournaments include Newbury Park, Simi Valley, Beverly Hills) so the team can play together before the Area 10E tournament. The Area 10E tournament is free, but other tournaments do have entry fees that must be paid for by the team.

All-star uniforms are provided by the region. Additional gear (such as jackets, backpacks etc.) which can build team identity and team spirit are optional and paid for by the team.

Tournament (Select) Teams

Any coach, after receiving permission from the Post-Season Directors and Regional Commissioner may form a Tournament, or Select, team to participate in one or a series of tournaments by extending an invitation to interested players at the conclusion of the Area E All-Star tournament and playoff.

All costs and other obligations (entry fees, referee deposits, uniform purchases, etc.) are strictly the responsibility of the team. The coach must account for all revenue and expenses pursuant to the instructions of the Regional Treasurer.

The Regional Commissioner must approve all team players and team rosters. The coach must invite at least one interested parent or another individual to be an assistant coach.

Tournaments will typically require a referee deposit or a list of referees to participate in the tournament. The Referee Participant Form is reviewed and signed by the Regional Referee Administrator. If you are a tournament team, feel free to contact the Regional Referee Administrator to see if local referees are interested in fulfilling your referee requirement at individual tournaments. This is not a guarantee that referees can be provided, but a proposed help to your tournament team.
