AYSO Region 58

Fall 2020 (Core Program)

Region 58 Core Program

This program begins in August and completes in December.

Registration will begin sometime in March 2020

AYSO is a national soccer organization that is child first and child focused.

We deliver quality youth soccer programs which promote a fun family environment founded on AYSO's Six Philosophies...

1. Everyone Plays
2. Balanced Teams
3. Open Registration
4. Positive Coaching
5. Good Sportsmanship
6. Player Development

Every girl and boy stepping on the field has fun developing soccer skills while enjoying the world's most popular sport.

We focus on positive messages and each child plays more than half of each game (usually 3/4 or more). 

At early ages the program focuses on a non-competitive fun experience building the foundation for player growth throughout their AYSO experience into their late teens.

Read on for details on age groups...

Boys & Girls - 4 year olds -> The Jamboree program is a pressure-free introduction to soccer.  Players experience age appropriate development that requires no practice or prior experience.  Weekly sessions are lead by an AYSO Advanced Coach where parents and kids are introduced to games and activities that develop soccer-related skills.  When ready, players are divided into 3-player teams for short games that focus on having fun.  This clinic-style program introduces the youngest kids (and their parents) to soccer as a stress-free experience.

Boys & Girls - 5 year olds ->  Players participate in 8-9 player teams playing weekly games each Saturday.  Teams practice in the first half of the scheduled game time followed by a 25 minute game with another team.  Games are generally 3 players versus 3 players on an age appropriate (30yd x 20yd) field.  Teams are divided so two games play simultaneously.  This maximizes playing time for each child and allows coaches to balance the team.  Games at this age are for fun!  We don't keep score or post standings.

Boys & Girls - 6 and 7 year olds ->  These age divisions introduce weekly practices in addition to Saturday games.  Practices are typically one hour on weekday afternoons or early evening.  Games are 40 minutes and played 5 players versus 5 players on an age appropriate (45yd x 30yd) field with small nets and no goalkeepers.  Experience shows that 6 and 7-year olds lack the physical development and psychological focus to play the goalkeeper position.  Eliminating the keepers results in an open and free-flowing game.  The smaller sized teams allow players to fully participate in the game.  Play is still focused on fun.  We don't keep score or post standings.

Boys & Girls - 8 and 9 year olds -> In this division we introduce goalkeeping and competitive play.  Weekly games are 50 minutes long and played 7 players versus 7 players on a 75yd x 40yd yard field.  This division introduces score keeping and the posting of standings.  Playoffs are held in December to determine the division champion.

Boys & Girls - 10 and 11 year olds ->  In this division games are 60 minutes long and played 9 players v 9 players on a field that is 90-100 yards long and 45-50 yards wide.  Goals are now full-size.  Players are introduced to positional play that approximates full team soccer.  The 9-player teams allow greater space on the field and more involvement by each player.

Boys & Girls - 12 and 13 year olds -> In this division we introduce full-size fields with 11 players versus 11 players competition. Games are 70 minutes long.  We continue to ensure that all players participate at least 3/4 of the game.

Boys & Girls, - 14 through 18 year olds -> In older teen divisions the season is shortened in order to allow players to participate on their high-school teams.  Games are sometimes played on Sunday.  The season ends prior to Thanksgiving.  Play is includes other Regions in our Area.
