AYSO Mission Statement

Mission Statement logoTo develop and deliver quality youth soccer programs, which promote a fun, family environment based on our philosophies:

Everyone Plays – Our goal is for kids to play soccer⎯so we mandate that every player on every team must play at least half of every game.

Balanced Teams – Each year we form new teams as evenly balanced as possible⎯because it is fair and more fun when teams of equal ability play.

Open Registration – Our program is open to all children between 4 and 19 years of age who want to register and play soccer. Interest and enthusiasm are the only criteria for playing.

Positive Coaching – Encouragement of player effort provides for greater enjoyment by the players and ultimately leads to better-skilled and better-motivated players.

Good Sportsmanship – We strive to create a safe, fair, fun and 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.

The mission is accomplished by providing these essential services:

  • Quality educational programs (coaching, instruction, management and officiating)
  • Quality administrative and operational systems with a support network
  • Integrated volunteer network, supported by a national staff
  • Program research and development
  • Strong financial position
