AYSO's Vision and Mission Statements

The AYSO Vision Statement is to provide world class world soccer programs that enrich children's lives.

The AYSO Mission is to develop and deliver quality youth soccer programs which promote a fun, family environment based on the the AYSO 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. *Region 873 mandates every child to play three quarters of every game whenever possible before any child plays the entire game.
  • Balanced Teams - We require every region at the start of each season to set up teams as evenly balanced as possible. It's more fun when teams are of equal ability.
  • Positive Coaching - This builds a positive team spirit. We train and encourage our coaches to make the extra effort to understand and offer positive help to our players, rather than negative criticism.
  • Open Registration - Our programs are open to all children ages 4 - 18 who want to register and play soccer. Interest and enthusiasm are the only requirements for playing.
  • Good Sportsmanship - We create a positive environment based on mutual respect, rather than a win-at-all-costs attitude. All of our programs are 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 operating systems with a support network
  • Integrated volunteer network, supported by a national staff
  • Program research and development
  • Strong financial position
