Our rates for a quality soccer program are extremely low only because we are an all volunteer organization with 30 different activities for you to get involved with lots of help so you can support our Platinum awarded Region for 7 years running. Our expectation is everyone pitches in somewhere.

Our Fall Season games begin September 12, 2015. Here are some tips about our program.
Teams will be formed in July and coaches will be contacting players mid August to begin training after August 15th.
See our calendar page for other important dates. Game schedules will be posted 1 week before the first game. Coaches choose the time and place to train on local fields usually twice per week for 60 - 90 minutes.
Every player needs to supply their own cleats, soccer ball, and shin guards to play. If you have not been called by your coach by August 20th, please contact your division manager found on our Contact Us page. Example for Under 8 age boy players is U8B@ayso85.org Look to this web site page for updates and more details. We are planning for another fun-filled season for your family and anticipate the excitement that will be here soon. Thanks for playing AYSO in Region 85 with 40 years of service to our community.

2015 AYSO Western States Championships @ LF Sports Park
It’s valuable to understand what motivates families to keep coming back to AYSO and what drives them away.
According to a study by the Wall Street Journal, what kids hate most about soccer is the car ride home. Too often, the first first thing a parent has to say after a game is a critical remark, an accusatory question or offer “you should haves!” to their kids. This only causes young players to lose interest in playing.
Parents often don't realize the impact of their words and forget that kids seek approval and want to impress them during games. When players feel put down, they can lose their love for soccer.
Focus on the positive. Great shot! Nice dribble! Amazing pass! Wow so close! These are all great ways to express to kids that they’re doing a good job and it will motivate them to try even harder.
Don’t offer excuses. Putting blame on a ref, the field, weather or a coach for a bad performance may offer short-lived comfort, but this attitude can backfire. Kids will fail to take accountability and will instead learn to blame other factors when things don’t go their way.
Don’t yell instructions during games. This causes confusion and annoys other parents, coaches and players (including your own!). A player develops best when they are allowed to make their own decisions on the field, figuring out what works best and working on those things at practice.
Don’t criticize refs in front of the kids. Always remember that AYSO refs are volunteers and have given up their time to make the game possible. Kids will learn from their parents so be aware that yelling at a ref is one of the things they will pick up. And pro soccer players can tell you that yelling at the ref DOES NOT make them change their mind!
