Spring Season Cancelled

Dear Oak Park AYSO families,

We are writing to you with the disappointing news that, after much careful consideration, we have decided to cancel the OP AYSO Spring soccer season. As much as we all want to get our kids out of the house so they can be active and social, Spring soccer is not going to be possible with the COVID-19 pandemic precautions that are in place.


The National AYSO Office has provided us with a means of refunding Spring fees via credit card that should be able to apply to the majority of our league. Since we will need to have everyone register for Fall regardless of whether we refund Spring or not, we have decided to take advantage of the AYSO's offer in order to reduce our need for tracking refunds and writing checks. No action is required for families. We expect refunds to go out in the next few weeks.



Like most organizations, we are planning on returning to “normal” this Fall, with that season scheduled to begin in late August. Registration for the Fall season will open before the end of the month. Of course, we will be watching state and local guidelines regarding the coronavirus very closely and adjusting our Fall plans as necessary.


As you know, AYSO is 100% volunteer-led and -run, including scheduling, uniforms and equipment, finances and, of course, coaching. It is impossible to run a league like this for our youth without the significant contributions of our adult volunteers. To that end, we still need volunteers to help manage the league. So become a volunteer and help us make the Fall season happen! It’s easy! Just email [email protected].


We are passionate about getting kids out and playing soccer. As COVID-19 restrictions are (hopefully!) relaxed in the coming months, we are planning on offering some additional soccer activities for registered players before the Fall season starts: skills clinics, pickup games, referee training, and more! Watch your email inbox and the AYSO website for announcements.
