AYSO Six Philosophies

Our mission is to provide quality youth soccer programs where everyone builds positive character through participation in a safe, fun, family-oriented soccer environment.

AYSO’s six philosophies separate us from the pack:

1. Everyone Plays

Our goal is for kids to play soccer, so we mandate that every player on every team must play at least 50 percent of every game.

2. Balanced Teams

Each year we form new teams as evenly balanced as possible, providing a stronger learning experience for teams as they play teams comprised of similar ability. It also allows for each player to experience playing with a wide variety of teammates of different skill levels.

3. Open Registration

Our program is open to all children who want to register and play soccer. Interest and enthusiasm are the only criteria for
playing.

4. Positive Coaching

Encouragement of player effort provides for greater enjoyment by the players and ultimately leads to better-skilled and better-motivated players.

5. Good Sportsmanship

We strive to create a safe, fair, fun and positive environment based on mutual respect, rather than a win-at-all-costs attitude, and our program is designed to instill good sportsmanship in every facet of AYSO.

6. 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 a team, in order to maximize their enjoyment of the game.
