Old equipment and other important information…..Equipment Return
In the past we always made an effort to collect some of the equipment back from one season to the next in an effort to keep overall equipment costs down. However, last year we failed to organize a date to do so. We know it’s late, but we are collecting as much of the old equipment back as possible.
To facilitate the collection of the old equipment we have designated a couple of drop off sites. Any equipment you have can be dropped off by leaving the equipment on the porch of the following locations:
Mike Johnson’s house:
11291 Oakcrest Ave. Ojai (off of Hwy 33 between Barbara and Willey.
Cheryl Fichera’s house:
1182 Lake Ave. Ojai (off of Woodland, Mira Monte Area)
884 Romano, Ojai (off of Rice Road and Camille Dr.)
You may also bring your equipment by the next registration, May 4 from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM at Nordhoff High School or, you can drop off your equipment at the Nordhoff High School at the AYSO Shed on “Shed Cleaning day,” May 18, 9:00 AM to 12:00.We need the equipment returned by May 17More important information you might find helpful:
This coming month I’ll be calling all of last year coaches to see if you might be willing to coach for the 2013 season, and if so, what division you would like to coach. I again want to thank you for coaching this last year and I’m hoping you might consider coaching again. Without you, we couldn’t do what we do.
If you are willing to coach, and will be coaching an upper division team, U14 or above, Area 10 will be conducting training on the following dates: Intermediate U14 Training on August 10 and 11 in Camarillo and August 17 and 18 in Santa Barbara.Upcoming Training OpportunitiesJuly 27 and August 17

This year, in an effort to comply with National Guidelines, we will not have keepers in the U8 division, nor will we have a draft for that division.
Our region has put in bids (U10 through U16/19) for a spot for the AYSO National Games, to be held in Torrance California, June 29 through July 6 2014. The Games will be held in Torrance (the home and birthplace of AYSO) in conjunction with AYSO’s 50th Anniversary. The drawing for spots will be held at the AYSO National Convention on May 26, 2013. I’m very excited about this one and hope we get a shot at being there. If you are interested in more information about the National Games go to http://www.ayso.org/events/national_games.aspx
There will be more information on these items as they come up. Feel free to check the Ojai AYSO calendar at http://www.ojaiayso.org/calendar.html

Again, thanks for helping last season, I am hopeful that you found the experience enjoyable and you might be willing assist us again.
