About AYSO

About AYSO

Founded in Torrance, California, in 1964, AYSO is a distinguished cornerstone of US Soccer, and with approximately 60,000 teams across all age groups, AYSO is the world's largest soccer club!

Success can be measured in many ways, from the careers of professional playerse who got their start playing AYSO, to the thousands of coaches (youth, high school, collegiate, and professional) who developed their passion and understanding of the game in AYSO. Regardless of perspective, our contribution to the US game's success is founded upon our unique Vision, Mission, and Philosophies.

AYSO Vision

To provide world-class youth soccer programs that enrich children's lives.

AYSO Mission

To develop and deliver quality youth soccer programs in a fun, family environment based on the AYSO philosophies.

AYSO Philosophies

An essential element in the AYSO program is fun. The practices and games must be fun for the players, coaches, referees and parents.  The philosophy of AYSO was created to provide honest competition in which “kids that are winners” are more important than “games that are won”. Your help and support will help enable “AYSO kids” to thrive.

Everyone Plays

AYSO National’s goal is for kids to play soccer show the mandate that every player on every team must play at least 50% of every game.  It’s no fun to spend again on the bench…  And that’s no way to learn to play soccer!  In Region 42 all players must play at least three-quarters of the game unless late or injured, or the team is carrying extra players.

Balanced Teams

Each year we form new teams as evenly balanced as possible because it’s more fun and a better learning experience when teams of similar ability play.

Open Registration

Our program is open to all children between 4 and 19 years of age who want to register and play soccer.  Interest and enthusiasm are the only criteria for playing.  The only time we cannot accept the child is when we do not have enough coaches.

Positive Coaching

Encouragement of player effort provides for greater enjoyment for the players and leads to better-skilled and better-motivated players. A coach can be one of the most influential people in a child’s life, so AYSO requires that they create a positive experience for every player.

Good Sportsmanship

We desire to create a positive environment based on mutual respect rather than a win-at-all-costs attitude.  Respect the other players, parents and the referees. Our program is designed to instill good sportsmanship in every facet of AYSO.

Player Development

We believe that all players should be able to develop their soccer skills and knowledge to the best of their abilities, both individually and as members of the team, in order to maximize their enjoyment of the game. 

"It is better to win ten times 1–0 than to win once 10–0."
