Registration begins tomorrow (May 1) 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 8. If this is your first time signing up, bring something to read and be prepared to wait! Based on my own experience, the wait time is about an hour or more. The process has improved slightly because the staff will now hand you a number and you wait for your number to be called instead of standing in a “Disneyland” line. The fee is $45 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 2008 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, check out the AYSO (American Youth Soccer Organization) program. Cerritos falls under Region 54. Upcoming sign-ups are May 16 at Cerritos Park East. Please check their website for more information.
