Welcome to AYSO Region 1099 - Half Moon Bay

Fall End-of-Season Tournament (10U and 12U and 14U)

The 10U, 12U, (and 14U, if more than one team) fall divisions participate in a HMB post-season tournament to determine which team will attend the Area Tournament in December (held in Foster City on Dec. 2nd and 3rd in 2023), with the potential to advance and play at the Section and Western States Tournaments.  Cost for post-season play is included in fall registration.

For all divisions with more than three teams, the tournament format is double elimination - each team continues in the tournament until it has lost twice.  For divisions with three teams (no examples in Fall 2023), the tournament format (round-robin play with two of the three teams advancing to a championship match) guarantees each team at least two games. Click here for the complete set of rules.  Note that tournament play may include matches on Sundays in late October and November and/or may include days on which a team will have to play two (or more) games.

  • 10U Boys - Tournament will run 10/28 through 11/5 (or 11/12 if championship rematch is necessary).
  • 10U Girls - Tournament will run 10/29 through 11/5 (or 11/12 if championship rematch is necessary).
  •  12U Boys - Tournament will run 10/29 through 11/5 (or 11/12 if championship rematch is necessary).
  • 12U Girls - Tournament will run 11/4 through 11/5 (two-match series)
  •  14U Boys - Tournament will run 10/29 through 11/5 (two-match series)
  • 14U Girls - N/A for 2023 (no 14UG team). Normally there is no HMB Tournament, since there is only one HMB (automatic qualifier for Area Tournament).

Note that dates/times for any if-necessary championship matches listed as "Nov. 5th or Nov 12th" will be set by mutual agreement of participating coaches and the HMB AYSO Scheduler once teams are finalized on Nov. 5th

Also note for Fall 2023, one team in 12UB (Murray/Berman) will NOT start tournament play on 10/29 -- this team will start tournament play on 11/4

The Area Tournament will be Saturday, December 2, and Sunday, December 3 in Foster City, with a minimum of two games per team and with the Area champion advancing to the Section Tournament the following weekend (also in Foster City).

Winter Select

Winter Select is an opportunity for AYSO Fall Instructional players to extend their season and play at a more advanced level. HMB Region 1099 (and all AYSO regions in our Area) can field one team for each gender in 9U, 10U, 11U, 12U, and 14U divisions, provided that coach volunteers are identified and there is sufficient player interest.  Teams may be combined across age groups (e.g. 11U players combined with 12U players and playing in the 12U division).

Interested players from HMB will be selected to form a competitive team to compete against AYSO Winter Select teams from other cities on the Peninsula.  Practices start in December.  Games start the first or second Saturday in January and run through the end of February

If there is more interest than roster spots, players will be selected through fall coach recommendations and try-outs, as roster sizes are capped by Area Rules 
  • 9U (2015 and younger): Maximum of 11 on roster
  • 10U (2014 and younger): Maximum of 11 on roster
  • 11U (2013 and younger): Maximum of 13 on roster
  • 12U (2012 and younger): Maximum of 13 on roster
  • 14U (2010 and younger): Maximum of 18 on roster
As each region is limited to one team per age group, Winter Select is an extra program that does NOT follow the AYSO core principle of Open Registration 

 $40 (12U+) or $50 (9U/10U)
Try-outs: Will occur late November or early December, as needed, to be scheduled by each coach
Practice: Once or twice a week, as determined by the coach, and can start early December (weekday practices must start 4pm due to daylight)
Games: Saturdays in January and February, both in Half Moon Bay and elsewhere in San Mateo County

All teams are required to supply a referee to the referee pool.

We also need a HMB Winter Select Coordinator to administer the program.  If you would like to learn more about this role, please e-mail [email protected]

Core Program - 6U to 19U

Our core program is the foundation for all the fun, excitement and learning that happens on the fields. AYSO is best known for its core program – it’s where the large majority of kids fall in love with soccer and make memories that will last a lifetime.

There are six core values – or what we call AYSO’s Six Philosophies – that are the foundation of our core program, and all others: 

- Everyone Plays
- Balanced Teams
- Open Registration
- Positive Coaching
- Good Sportsmanship
- Player Development

These are the essence of AYSO and it all starts with Everyone Plays.  Here in AYSO, Everyone Plays means that no kid spends their soccer experience sitting on the bench.  Every kid plays at least half of every game.  Also, teams are put together in a way that makes playing soccer about the experience, not wins or losses.  It’s not about blowing out another team with an unbelievable score; it’s about sportsmanship and learning to be the best possible team mate and opponent.  Developing players is what we’re about, because soccer skills and life skills go hand in hand.  AYSO’s main purpose is to get kids on the field, provide them with good coaches, and teach them to play soccer.
