SUMMER SOCCER CAMPS
 

AYSO Community Day Camps create an environment that is fun and conducive to learning for all ages and levels of ability, and does it on the fields the kids already know and love.

With solid grounding in AYSO’s philosophies and coaching programs, AYSO Soccer Camps work with kids on skills and activities appropriate to their age and skill level. AYSO Soccer Camps are conducted by the best nationally and internationally qualified coaches recruited and trained by UK International Soccer Camps.

UK International is the only organization whose coaches, primarily from Great Britain, are AYSO Safe Haven Certified, and trained in AYSO philosophies. Coaches are selected not only for their knowledge and their coaching ability, but also for their commitment to creating a fun, positive learning environment for the players. The result is a soccer camp experience players will remember for a lifetime.

All camp sessions are based on individual attention to ball skills, include street soccer and world cup tournaments and teach children how to improve “off” the field as well as "on" it, with INSPIRE.

INSPIRE is the coaching methodology to develop the whole player (as an athlete and as a person)...and provide them with the tools and self-belief to reach their goals on and off the field!

AYSO REGION 85 DOG POLICY
 
Please be aware that dogs are NOT allowed on Saddleback Valley Unified School District fields - AT ANY TIME. That especially holds true for AYSO practices and games. The presence of dogs on any school field, could lead to SVUSD revoking our permit.

Even though city parks allow leashed dogs, they are not allowed at AYSO practices or games.

With kids running around and other activity at AYSO events, the chances are very high that pets will be excitable and may cause injury. In addition, some children have a fear of dogs.

Thank you in advance for helping to keep AYSO soccer a fun event for all.
