All registrations completed after that date will be put on the waiting list regardless of their team status

Waiting list info see below

All registrations completed after July17th will be placed on the waiting list.

If you are registering a player that is connected to a team and your coach listed your child on that teams roster your child will be moved to that team.

If you are registering a player that is connected to a team and your coach DID NOT list your child on that teams roster. Your child will be on the waiting list until we have placed everyone that signed up on time. If there are still spots available on that coaches team you will be assigned to that team.

If you are registering a player that is not connected to a team your child will be on the waiting list until we have placed all the players that registered on time.

Usually we need coaches in all age groups. Volunteering to coach a team usually means your child will be taken off the waiting list immediately. If you are interested in volunteering to coach please log back into your account and create a volunteer coach application

Obviously if we do not place your child on a team you will get 100% back of your registration fees.

Guide – Best Ways to Join LAFC So Cal Rec Youth Soccer Program

  • 1 - Decided to coach your child. Round up the  friends appropriate number of age-appropriateand start a new team
  • 2 - Decide to coach your child. If you do not have any other age-appropriate players for your team we will add players to your team from the player pool
  • 3 - Join a team that is being formed by one of your child's friends parents. (That is coaching)
  • 4 - Put together a group of age-appropriate players (The bigger the group is the more likely you will need to provide the coach)
  • 5 - Sign up as an individual and be placed in the player pool we will add you to a team based on where you go to school / the city you live in (we try to match up individual players with the team from your school or your city but obviously that does not always work)

If we have 60 players registered in an age group that is 6 players per team that would be 10 teams

If all 10 volunteer coaches live in Winnetka technically all 10 teams would be Winnetka based teams.
