Spring Season Fields
Spriing Soccer will use the fields at La Madera Park (map) . These are the neighborhood fields that we played on during the season
Spring soccer is for children of all ages – especially the little ones! Several years ago, we chose Jamboree for our Spring season. In Jamboree, children get to play soccer in an age-specific program with small sided games built in each session. The older play a tournament season.
In Jamboree, the children learn soccer skills like kicking, dribbling, and throwing in the ball, but in a low-pressure setting. Jamboree is about exposing children to soccer, not grooming them for college scholarships. Coaches are assigned to present training sessions with a master coach that coordinates the activities. Spring session bring more skills development in group settings. It’s a different kind of game in U-5, U-8, and U-8 but the children still wear jerseys or pinnies, cleats and shin guards. This will commence on the first week of February and then extend over six weeks. A scheduled break occurs at the half so that our region will participate in the Area tournament for U8. Your calendar will show those dates.
Spring Season Travel Teams
Travel teams are formed and will be playing in various tournaments. We wish them all luck. Come out and watch them play in the OPI tournament Feburary 23-26.
In travel season, children tryout for a spot on the team. This is not quite All-star. We have mostly the all-star players but the best is not always what coaches choose. Most are building the best team. Teams are built on the skill of the player, the social aspect of parents and players, the willingness for both the parent and player to commit to the time. The team normally plays several of the local tournament setting and some outside of Tucson. It is an excellent opportunity for your child to play on a more competitive level. Fees depend on the number of tournaments a team wants to participate.
Our fundraiser sold more than 400 cards. We have Beats won by Parkerson and Isaac. Poisson Ivy and the U5s sold the most cards sold. Also Andres, Gavin, Nicole Izabela, Riley, Daniel, and Kai all sold more than 15 cards. Thank you all for your support. We will celebrate all soon.

Special Points of Interest
Pets on the Field
Remember to Leave Your Furry Friends At Home
Pets are a special part of everyone's family! There are plenty of people, though, who are either allergic to or scared of animals. Even the best-behaved pets can become frightened and react to people and things around them; for those reasons, many AYSO fields across the country don't allow pets. Animals and their leashes can become tripping hazards to people along the sidelines in addition to being at risk of injury themselves.
