Region 83: Five Cities: League Season Playoff and Playoff Points: This year, AYSO Region 83, will continue to hold our end of regular (league) season tournament, the Ken Claassen Memorial Playoff. Each child in divisions 10U through 14U will have the opportunity to participate. The tournament will be used to determine which regular (league) season teams represent our region at the Area League Playoff in December. The regular (league) season win/loss/tie record, i.e., standings WILL NOT be used to determine which regular (league) season teams represent our region at the Area League Playoffs. In other words, it will be possible for a team to lose all of the regular (league) season games, and still be eligible to participate in the playoff, and possibly to qualify to represent the Region in the Area League Playoff. 

The introduction of this playoff and the elimination of regular (league) season standings as a determining criteria to participate in Area League Playoff allows for coaches to concentrate their attention and efforts during our ten game regular (league) season on player development and experimentation, instead of on winning every game. This should also serve to deescalate sideline intensity, reduce player and referee pressure, and increase the Kid Zone, i.e., the protective zone we maintain in which our kids are free to play fun, fair, safe, and positive soccer. Participation in the playoff will be preconditioned on teams qualifying, based on playoff points earned (or lost) during the season.

Points are earned (and lost) as follows
