The national AYSO guidelines mandate that every child on every team must play at least half of every game. It is the policy of the Region that:
Anyone of appropriate age can register, regardless of where they live or what school they attend.
Teams are formed as evenly balanced as possible, because it’s more fun and a better learning experience when teams of similar ability play.
Encouragement of player effort provides for greater enjoyment for the players and leads to better-skilled and better-motivated players. A coach can be one of the most influential people in a child’s life, so AYSO requires they create a positive experience for every boy and girl.
We strive to create a 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.
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, no matter where they are starting from.
