About AYSO

AYSO was established in the Los Angeles area in 1964 with nine teams. It was the dream of a group of devoted soccer enthusiasts who started the organization in a garage. Today, AYSO has 50,000 teams and over 500,000 players. It also employs 50 people at the AYSO National Office in Torrance, Calif.

Over the years, AYSO has created many valuable programs and concepts. Most notably, AYSO revolutionized youth sports with its "Everyone Plays®" and "Balanced Teams" philosophies. In AYSO, each child who registers is guaranteed to play at least half of every game. To help create evenly matched games, all AYSO players are placed on new or "balanced" teams each year. These decisions are made based on each player's skill level and the overall ability of the team.

Since its establishment, AYSO has continued to grow and offer its membership relevant programs.

Early Growth and International Presence

In 1971, two San Fernando Valley residents developed AYSO's first girls program. Today, a corporate sponsor has joined with AYSO as the organization's first official sponsor of its national girl's initiative. Currently, 40 percent of AYSO's players are girls. 

In the mid 70s, an AYSO coach chartered new territory as he welcomed the organization's first player with Down Syndrome. As a result of this landmark union, soccer was introduced into the Special Olympics. Today, AYSO offers its membership the Very Important Player (VIP) program for kids with special needs. VIP boasts 75 programs and 1,500 players. 

In 1995, two AYSO parents established the first AYSO program in Moscow. Today, AYSO programs exists in the U.S. Virgin Islands, Trinidad and Tobago, and interest continues from Americans abroad looking to bring the values and philosophies of AYSO to expatriates and local communities alike.

AYSO is supported by 125,000 volunteers. Parents donate their time as coaches, referees, team parents, administrators or sponsors. In 1998, AYSO unveiled its new Coach Certification and Safe Haven programs. Each was designed to strengthen the organization's role in child protection. Although AYSO is primarily a youth sports organization, it realizes the importance of providing a safe and healthy atmosphere for children. AYSO is continually working to improve the education of its volunteers in the fields of child development, human behavior, and sports psychology. A strong emphasis is placed on ethics and sportsmanship and the development of the whole child.

AYSO
 is a nonprofit organization dedicated to positive child development through participation in a safe, fair, fun soccer environment. We're well known for our six core philosophies as expressed in our mission statement: To develop and deliver quality youth soccer programs which promote a fun, family environment based on our philosophies:

  • EVERYONE PLAYS - Your child is guaranteed to play at least 50% of each game, regardless of his or her level of skill or aptitude.

  • BALANCED TEAMS - Team balancing promotes the AYSO philosophy stressing team participation not winning. Every player should have an equal opportunity to be on a winning team, independent of skills. We try to set up teams at the beginning of the season to make them as balanced as possible.

  • OPEN REGISTRATION - Our program is open to all children between 4 and 19 years of age who want to register and play soccer. There are no tryouts to "make the team", no reserved places, girls participate as well as boys, and beginners are just as welcome as skilled players. Interest and enthusiasm are the only criteria for playing. 

  • POSITIVE COACHING - We say, winning kids comes first, winning games comes second. Kids thrive on encouragement. The extra effort it takes to offer positive help to our players, rather than negative criticism, is an investment in the future of all our kids - on or off the playing field.    

  • GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP - AYSO creates a positive environment based on mutual respect, rather than a "win at all cost" 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.
