AYSO Region 37: About Us

Mission Statement

AYSO Vision Statement - To provide world class youth soccer programs that enrich children’s lives.

AYSO Mission Statement - The American Youth Soccer Organization’s mission is to develop and deliver quality youth soccer programs, which promote a fun, family environment based on the AYSO philosophies: Everyone Plays, Balanced Teams, Open Registration, Positive Coaching, Good Sportsmanship, & Player Development.

  • Everyone Plays - Our program's goal is for kids to play soccer so we mandate that every player on every team must play at least 75% of every game. It’s no fun to spend the game on the bench and that’s no way to learn soccer!
  • 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. It allows for each player to gain the experience of a wide variety of teammates of different skill levels.
  • Open Registration - Our program is open to all children between 4½ and 18 years of age who want to register and play soccer. Interest and enthusiasm are the only criteria for playing. There are no elimination try-outs and nobody gets cut.
  • 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 they create a positive experience for every boy and girl.
  • Good Sportsmanship - We strive to create a 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.
  • 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.
