Registration Instructions for the Fall Season

Hillsborough AYSO is open to everyone, all schools, all towns. We have limited field space so register early because  it's likely some divisions will be oversubscribed. If this happens, children of volunteer coaches and referees will be given priority when teams are formed. The Fall AYSO season is open to anyone at least 4 years of age on August 1st of this year and no more than 18 year of age on August 1st of this year.

Follow these steps to register your players:

STEP 1: Pre-register online. Go to www.eayso.org and follow the instructions to pre-register your player.  Hillsborough is “Region 110”.  If you have registered in prior years, be sure to update your email address, health insurance, medical and emergency contact information.

If you are registering for the first time, you will need the following information:
1 • Player name, address, phone number, gender, birth date.
2 • Your child's school and grade THIS FALL (not now).
3 • A primary email address we can use for communication.
4 • Emergency contact info, doctor name and phone, and insurance carrier.
5 • Parent/guardian names and phone numbers.

Be sure to follow the "check the box" instructions for completing the application form with an electronic signature.  Print a copy of the completed form as you will need it for Step 2.

STEP 2: Walk-in Registration. Come to Crocker Middle School on one of the registration days listed on the left. Bring your completed registration form, a separate check for each player (made out to “Hillsborough AYSO”), and proof of age for first time players (birth certificate or passport).


The fee for walk-in registration is $150. (Only available until May 3.) The fee for mail-in registrations is $200 if received in the AYSO mailbox before May 15th; after that date the fee is $250. Please provide a separate check for each player.

Hillsborough Employees. The registration fee for children of Hillsborough employees is $100.

VIP Fees. The registration fee for VIP (special needs) is $50.

No Buddy Requests. Because team balance is a core AYSO principle, we do not accept buddy requests (i.e., requests for friends to play on the same team).

Waitlists. All registrations are accepted subject to team availability.  Once a division is fully subscribed, additional applications will be placed on a waitlist.  Applications that do not clear the waitlist will be refunded.

Refunds. No refunds for player withdrawals will be given after July 10th.  Requests for refunds should be directed to registrar@hillsboroughayso.org.

Division Placement Guidelines

All age divisions are divided into two groups (boys and girls). Team sizes may vary when teams are formed depending on player headcount and availability of coaches.

Requests for players to play in a higher (older) division or to play down in a lower (younger) division must be submitted to commissioner@hillsboroughayso.org.  These requests will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Please Email this request and include justification along with the child's height, weight, relative speed and aggressiveness compared to his or her peers.  Play-Up / Play-Down requests will be considered only if space is available in the requested age division.


AYSO has been promoting the recommendations provided by the U.S. Center for Disease Control's Heads Up program for concussion awareness and safety.  Parents are encouraged to learn the signs and symptoms of concussion and the associated risks.  For more information, you can read AYSO's Parent/Athlete Concussion Information Sheet.

Injured Players

If a player is injured and unable to play, the coach may request that a replacement player be assigned to the team from the division waitlist (if any). If a replacement player is assigned to the team, the injured player will be moved to an injured player pool. If the injured player wishes to return to the division, he or she will be assigned to a team based on space availability and team balance considerations. There is no guarantee that the injured player will be assigned to his or her original team.

Problems Registering?

Online registration requires use of Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox (use of Safari creates printing problems). If you receive an error message when trying to request your password or if you no longer have access to the email you used to create your login, please send an email to eAYSOsupport@ayso.org to have your password reset. If you have a new email address (different from the one you previously registered with on eAYSO), please be sure and list the email address that needs to be reset. If you get a message that your email address is already in use it means that someone in your family created a login at one time. If you don't know the password, then send an email to eAYSOsupport@ayso.org.

Frequently Asked Questions
Answers to most of your registration related questions can likely be found below. If you have general questions, feel free to contact us.

Q: What if I do not have Internet access to register online?

A:   You can come to our walk-in registration days, as shown at the top of the page.

Q: What if I don't have an account?

A:   You can create your account at www.eayso.org. If aren't sure if you have an account, the system offers a lookup to see if it has a record of you. Please do not create a new account if you can't remember your user name or password. That will result in confusion with your child's records and delay registration.  If unable to access an account you created in prior years, please contact info@HillsboroughAYSO.org.

Q: What are the costs?

A:   Your costs are limited to our registration fees.  Incidental costs during the season may include your portion of a team banner, providing snack for one game and coach and referee appreciation gifts for the time they have put in volunteering for the team.

Q: Are scholarships available?

A:   Yes. Please contact the Registrar at registrar@HillsboroughAYSO.org and make your request. Verification of need will be asked for.

Q: Can I pay electronically?

A:   No, not at this time.  We will be enhancing our systems over the coming years to accommodate this option.

Q: When do we sign the medical release and code of conduct forms?

A:   The medical release forms are signed as part of the registration forms that are filled out online during the online registration process.  The coaches are responsible for signing the code of conduct forms as part of their Coach Certification training.

Q: Can I choose the practice field?

A:   No, we do not know the practice fields selected by the coaches until after all the teams have been assigned.

Q: Can I request a particular coach?

A:   No, you cannot request a particular coach.  However, each coach can request one assistant coach and therefore the children of the coach and assistant will naturally be together on the same team.

Q: Can I request to play with a friend?

A:  No, requests for placements on teams will not be granted.  Exceptions will be made for siblings, coaches and assistant coaches.

Q: Can I request that two siblings in the same age group play together?

A:  Yes, they can be assigned to the same team by specifying the name of the player's sibling during online registration in the "siblings playing on the same team" field.

Q: As a head coach, can I pick my assistant coach?

A: Yes. When you register, indicate you want to be a Head Coach. Your assistant needs to register as an Assistant Coach. This summer, you will be contacted by your division coordinator who will ask you if you have a specific assistant. As a head coach, you are allowed to pick the assistant coach – the assistant cannot pick the head coach.  If team balance is impacted negatively by two particular coaches pairing up, they will be asked to spit up.

Q: Can I request to play-up a division?

A: Only with permission from the Regional Commissioner. Please read our Division Placement Guidelines above for more information.

Q: Can I request to play-down a division?

A: Only with permission from the Regional Commissioner. Please read our Division Placement Guidelines above for more information.

Q: I can't remember my username or password.

A: If you do not remember your account name or password, Click here for help. This will ask for your first name, last name and phone number and allow you to reset your password.

Q: How do I withdraw if I won't be able to play?

A: We provide for full refunds prior to July 10th by sending an email to HillsboroughAYSO@gmail.com. After July 10th, our policy is to not provide refunds in order to minimize players dropping out after team formation has been completed.

Q: What do I do if I'm having trouble registering online?

A: If you are having trouble registering online, please contact the support center at eAYSO before entering your child again - multiple entries for one child can lead to confusion in team placement.
