AYSO is the oldest national, non-profit youth soccer program in the United States which provides soccer development and instruction for children between ages 3 and 19.
AYSO's mission is to develop and deliver quality youth soccer programs which promote a fun, family environment based on AYSO's Six Philosophies. These philosophies are what sets it apart from other youth sports. The Six Philosophies are Everyone Plays®, Balanced Teams, Open Registration, Positive Coaching, Good Sportsmanship and Player Development. Learn more about our Six Philosophies here.
To accomplish our mission, we offer programs tailored for the needs of a broad range of players from players who just want to play and have fun to the most competitive athletes looking forward to high school and college play. We even have a very special program for players who face physical and mental challenges.

Our core program is the foundation for all the fun, excitement and learning that happens on the fields. AYSO is best known for our core program. It’s where the large majority of kids fall in love with soccer and make memories that will last a lifetime.
Soccer is for people of all ages—even the little ones! Several years ago, we created Playground for three-to-five-year-olds. In Playground, children get to play soccer in an age-specific program, and you, the parents, get to participate with them.
Very Important Player
AYSO is proud to offer a very special program for children and adults with physical or mental disabilities.

Our club allows players to enjoy more advanced play, participate in intense competition and receive cutting-edge training while still enjoying the benefits of AYSO and its Six Philosophies.

AYSO has instituted an adult league for the purpose of giving adults the same opportunity as AYSO youth players to learn and enjoy the game of soccer.
