How do I find out the practice schedule for the team?

Your up-to-date practice schedule will be posted on the Byga app. Please log in at https://aaysa.byga.net/ or mobile app after registration. 

 

When can I find the practice schedule on Byga for the upcoming season?

AAYSA Select Team practice schedule will be posted on the Byga once the field reservation applications are approved by the city before the beginning of the season. Due to unforeseen reasons, schedules may be changed during the season.

Which site should my player go for weekday team practice?

The AAYSA coaching team will assign your player to the nearest team practice site according to your home residence, or your kids are required to practice with the team. Please email at info@aaysacademy.org for any concerns or questions.

 

What forms of payment are accepted at registration?

We accept Credit/debit cards and eChecks.

 

Can I make a request to get my child into a specific team? 

AAYSA understands that friends like to play together and AAYSA will do our best to accommodate requests. However due to the competitive aspect AAYSA cannot guarantee any placement. The placements will be decided by the coaches and the technical directors based on the player’s level and age.

 

I am interested in being a major sponsorship partner with AAYSA. Whom do I contact? 

The club major sponsorship opportunities can be customized to your interest and level of support. Please contact info@aaysacademy.org.

 

What should I do if the player is injured?  

Please provide the doctor’s note and email at treasurer@aaysacademy.org. AAYSA will submit your request to the Board and decide your case. 

 

Besides the practices on weekdays, does AAYSA offer other soccer training as well?  

Yes, AAYSA also offers different soccer training programs, including: striker training, goalkeeper training, small group training, private training, elite soccer training, and camps during the school break. The details of the programs will be sent to you per email.

 

Can AAYSA guarantee my child’s playing time?  

New players must be evaluated by the DOC and coaches to ensure that they are ready to participate in NorCal games. For some players who are not ready either physically or mentally, we recommend that they participate in the in-house tournaments that we will hold weekly and more practices to improve their soccer skills and get more experiences. During the games, coaches will try to equalize the playing time. But when it comes to playing time, effort and attitude are always sure bets to increase a player’s amount of time on the soccer field. If a player is a new player on a team, that player will still get playing time, and they can use their teammates as examples to learn from to improve their own abilities. For players committed to soccer for the long run (e.g. for those who want to play in college), this competitive mindset will be essential for the future.

 

If I withdraw my child from soccer, do I get a full refund? 

The competitive program has a stringent refund policy because a player’s acceptance has the effect of denying another player an opportunity to play on a competitive team. Additionally, costs accrue to the Club for services provided to the team based on player headcount. Accordingly, players withdrawing from the Club before the end of the season will not receive a refund, nor will the fees be prorated. Fees for participation in the club cover the entire year/or season if registering mid soccer year (for the following Spring season). A player who accepts an invitation to play with the Club commits to pay the entire fee for the full year. No refunds, partial or full, will be made to players who choose not to participate at any point during a season after registration for any reason, including players suspended from the program. The only exceptions are (1) In the event that a player has a season ending injury, the board may consider a partial refund after review of records provided by the treating physician or facility and (2) For families that move during the season. The board may consider a partial refund in these circumstances on a case by case basis. In order to be released to play for another club, we require the season fees to be paid in full. 

 

Can I only pay for one season instead of the whole year?

AAYSA made the Full Season payment option standard at each Fall season and following Spring season. Please read important information in the Refunds section.

Does ‘Year-round’ really mean 52 weeks of non-stop soccer?

Not at all. No one should train and play that way. Although there are Summer Camps and Winter Leagues, AAYSA considers the year to be broken into two seasons.

Teams typically take time to “decompress”. Although your child will be committed to his/her club team year-round, he/she will be actually training/playing for about 40 weeks of the year.
