5 Cities All Stars

AYSO Region 83 All Stars

The All Star program for divisions 10U-14U is an opportunity for kids (who do not have a conflicting commitment such as club team requirements) to enhance and develop their skills during post season tournaments.  Players are selected based on skill, sportsmanship, good attitude, commitment to their team, and coach recommendations.  Teams compete in tournaments within AYSO Area Q (which includes Paso Robles, SLO, 5 Cities, Nipomo, Santa Ynez, and Lompoc Regions) and, if they advance, in the playoff tournaments for Section10 held in Bakersfield in February.  If teams advance from the Section playoffs, the next tournament - Western States - is typically held in CA, AZ, or NV.

2022-23 All Stars Referee Info

Each All-Star team will have the responsibility of supplying minimum 3 qualified/certified referees for each tournament.  One of the three must be competent/certified to referee that age division (for 10U and 12U; see requirements for 14U below) for every match assigned - ie three Assistant Referees don't make a complete ref team. If the Head Coach is one of the team referees, the team must then have 2 referees and 2 AR's (however, head coaches may not referee in Area or Section playoffs). Tournament dates are listed below.

Commitment:   Selected referees are expected to commit to representing their assigned team for the entire All Star season (for each tournament). Substitute referees are only allowed from the group of Post-Season referees approved by the Region 83 Ref Staff and Regional Referee Administrators (ie  referees not representing a specific team).

2023-24 All Star (Post Season) Referee Application  due Friday, October 20, 2023.  The Ref Administrators will be emailing out a Google form for refs to apply.     Questions?  Email  [email protected]  or [email protected]
