What our Alumni Say
My younger brother started playing AYSO and I thought it looked like fun, so I begged my parents to let me play too. It was great . . . to just play with friends and have fun.

The beauty of AYSO was that you had kids from all walks of life who just wanted to be active and run around and play soccer. I started playing club soccer at the age of 10 but I wanted to continue playing AYSO because I enjoyed the camaraderie and the ability to just play for the love of playing. The games were still competitive but they never revolved around winning.

I can’t imagine a better experience than AYSO. It’s the best place for kids to learn to play soccer and have a great time. It’s how I got started.

AYSO emphasizes all the positives of soccer: the enjoyment that kids get from the sport, understanding how to play on a team and be a good teammate, and developing skills in a fun environment. I watched my nieces and nephews go through AYSO and I look forward to watching my own kids enjoy soccer through AYSO!
