T-Shirt Colors for Opening Day

For Opening Day TOMORROW (4/29) once you are assigned to a team and your coach contacts you, please wear any T-shirt you have as close as possible to your team color.

If you don’t hear from your coach in time just come to the field early to check in and AYS Staff members will guide you to the correct location.

Actual team shirts are given out Week 2.
If you don’t have the color, any T-shirt is fine.  Cleats are great but you can play in sneakers.

Everyone must have Shin Guards to play.
(No Exceptions)

We will have some for sale at the Concession Stand ($10).

See you on the field~

Who let the dogs out?

While we love our pets we are asking again to Please leave them at home.  The school and the soccer league do not want animals on the field where the children play for safety and hygienic reasons.  We again thank you for spreading the word…
