Why Choose AYSO?

Nationally Certified Coaches - Every volunteer coach is nationally certified in age appropriate training.  From Playground all the way to 19U, we make sure that our coaches have resources and training available to make them the best they can be.  It's more than just a parent volunteer, it's a trained and supported position.

World Class Soccer - Our program has something for everyone.
• Even the little ones can play! Our Playground division gives ages 3 (Birth Year 2016) a fun soccer experience that develops fundamental motor skills. 
• Our recreational league in the fall season brings all players together and develops positive soccer attitude.
• The Spring Academy is a skills specific program that produces great individual benefits.
• The new year brings the start of Alliance, try-out based, tournament teams that travel in and outside Arizona to compete at a higher level.
• At the top tier we have our AYSO United teams that play AYSO principled soccer within the club structure throughout Arizona.

Focus on Player Development - Winning isn't everything, and it shouldn't be. On any given set of games, only half or less will walk away with a win.  So we focus on the more important aspect of the beautiful game... Player Development.  Every AYSO player plays at least 1/2 of a game, usually 3 quarters.  This means that your child won't be riding the bench and never getting touches on the ball.  It also means we encourage each player to explore the various positions of a soccer team.  In AYSO we build fully rounded soccer players, not Left Defensive Backs or Right Midfielders.

Volunteer Screening - Every volunteer within AYSO, from Team Manager to Regional Commissioner is background checked against a national database.  We take the safety of our children seriously.  AYSO's Safe Haven program outlines procedures that are taken on the field to prevent physical injuries, and precautions that are taken off the field to ensure children and volunteers are safe in their interactions with each other.   Safe Haven is a program that has been put in place to protect AYSO players and the volunteers who serve them. It requires that each AYSO volunteer agree to a background check and take in-person or online training that’s focused on the best ways to work with children and important safety protocols.

Kids Zone - In AYSO, we want all players, coaches, families and volunteers to have fun. That’s where Kids Zone comes in. Kids Zone is a program that encourages fans on the sidelines, and anyone else near the play, to use positive language, show sportsmanship in their attitude and behavior, and create a great experience for every player. It’s a reminder that the soccer fields are a kid’s zone – a friendly, happy, wholesome place for children to play.
