American Youth Soccer Organization Providing world class youth soccer programs that enrich children's lives.

AYSO Region 322 - JCYSL

CORE CORE

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.

There are six core values – or what we call AYSO’s Six Philosophies – that are the foundation of our core program, and all others: Everyone Plays, Balanced Teams, Open Registration, Positive Coaching, Good Sportsmanship and Player Development. These are the essence of AYSO and it all starts with Everyone Plays.

Here in AYSO, Everyone Plays means that no kid spends their soccer experience sitting on the bench. Every kid plays at least half of every game. Learn more about AYSO’s Six Philosophies here.

Also, teams are put together in a way that makes playing soccer about the experience, not wins or losses. It’s not about blowing out another team with an unbelievable score; it’s about sportsmanship and learning to be the best possible team mate and opponent. Developing players is what we’re about, because soccer skills and life skills go hand in hand. AYSO’s main purpose is to get kids on the field, provide them with good coaches, and teach them to play soccer.

U-19 U-19

As AYSO players get older, many join leagues or high school soccer teams looking for more soccer experience. AYSO’s U-19 Program gives your teenage athletes another choice for competitive play. The program is organized under the rules and bylaws of AYSO philosophies and policies, but with a few adjustments to make it more enjoyable and accessible for teenagers.

The U-19 program is different than the standard program in a few ways: coed teams are allowed, there are more flexible guidelines for player substitution and travel teams are also an option. U-19 teams can also play against local high schools, participate in select teams and play against other.

In the U-19 program, like the rest of AYSO, coaches and referees are involved on a volunteer basis. Fields and equipment are organized whenever possible by Regional leadership. And because the program is less formal and players participate in organizing play, games and practices can be set up to accommodate school and work schedules.

V.I.P. V.I.P.

For over 20 years the American Youth Soccer Organization’s VIP Program has provided a quality soccer experience for children and adults whose physical or mental disabilities make it difficult to successfully participate on mainstream teams.

VIP teams may include:

  • Blind or visually impaired
  • Amputees or with conditions that impair mobility
  • Mentally or emotionally challenged
  • Autistic
  • Down syndrome
  • Cerebral Palsy

Everyone Plays®
Supported by trained, volunteer VIP coaches and buddies, our VIP Program provides a team experience where players learn soccer while having fun, increasing their self-esteem and meeting new people. Our buddies are non-disabled persons who assist our VIP players on the field to learn soccer and have fun while being safe!

All our volunteers are trained and certified with AYSO’s Safe Haven and VIP Training while our coaches and referees have additional job specific training.  Our volunteers have found their lives greatly enriched by their involvement with their new VIP friends.

Players, plus their families and volunteers, will be enriched by a true AYSO soccer experience – team uniforms, cheering from the sidelines, scoring goals, making friends. Our parents are able to relax and enjoy watching their children having fun and playing a sport perhaps for the first time.

VIP gives joy and hope.
