Registration begins tomorrow (May 2) for the City of Cerritos youth soccer league at the Cerritos Sports Complex from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. if you are a resident. For non-residents, registration will open on May 9. If this is your first time signing up, bring a hat and a chair and be prepared to stand in a long a** line! Based on my own experience, the wait time is about an hour or more. The fee is $40 and you get a jersey and a trophy at the end of the season. The kids are divided by birth year so kids born in 2007 will be entering Rookie I and so forth. The Cerritos Sports Complex is located at 19900 Bloomfield Ave., Cerritos.
If that’s not enough soccer for you, there is also the Cerritos Youth Program’s Summer Academy. They play on Fridays beginning June 15th also at the Sports Complex. If you’re not completely burned out by then, and your kid still wants to play, check out AYSO (American Youth Soccer Organization) program. Cerritos falls under Region 54. Upcoming sign-ups are May 3 and May 7. Please check their website for more information.
See you in line!
