Goals & Strategy

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Players will have fun playing soccer
Players will understand the fundamentals of the game
Players will learn teamwork and fair play
Players will increase their self-esteem
Players will become more physically fit
Players will meet and be comfortable with new people

We encourage our players to get on the field and play and have fun. Additionally, we teach them the basics of soccer and have them play tournaments against another team to have them get used to meeting new people.

AYSO has various programs for different age groups and athletic needs/capabilities:

AYSO Playground: This program is for kids 3 to 5 years old. AYSO Playground uses group activities, soccer themes and parent participation to develop the fundamental motor skills that prepare kids for all sports.

AYSO Schoolyard Jamboree: The Jamboree program exposes 4-year-olds to soccer, and teaches them the basics such as kicking, dribbling and throw-ins, all in a low-pressure setting.

AYSO Core Program: Core is another name for AYSO’s Primary soccer program. The Core program spans the 6U to 19U age divisions and is typically separated by gender, although co-ed soccer is offered in some communities at the early age levels and for teen recreational programs.

EXTRATM: EXTRATM offers a more serious level of soccer for AYSO players who have the interest and the abilities. Though players are more advanced, the EXTRATM program follows the same core values as the other programs and embraces AYSO’s Six Philosophies.

VIP: The VIP (Very Important Player) program provides a quality soccer experience for kids and adults whose physical or mental disabilities make it difficult to successfully participate on a mainstream team.

We have successfully introduced our players to new people and have them open up to physical activity. We passed all of our goals in doing so.
