American Youth Soccer Organization Providing world class youth soccer programs that enrich children's lives.

AYSO Soccer Region 44, Sunnyvale CA


The American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO) is a nationwide non-profit organization that develops youth soccer players in a fun, family environment based on AYSO's six Philosophies:

  • Everyone Plays - Our goal is for kids to play soccer so we mandate all players play at least 50 percent of every game
  • Open Registration - We welcome all players regardless of skill level
  • Balanced Teams - We form new teams every season to provide a stronger learning experience with more competitive games and allows players to meet and play with a variety of teammates.
  • Positive Coaching - A coach can be one of the most influential people in a player's life, so AYSO requires our coaches to create a positive experience for every player. Encouraging a player's effort leads to greater enjoyment, improved skills and stronger motivation in our players.
  • Good Sportsmanship - We strive to create a positive environment based on mutual respect rather than a win-at-all-costs environment. Our programs are designed to instill good sportsmanship.
  • Player Development - 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 to maximize their enjoyment of the game.

AYSO Region 44 serves the city of Sunnyvale, California and surrounding areas. It is open to all boys and girls aged 5 to 18. Our Fall season runs from early September to early November each year, and the Spring season runs from mid-March to mid-May.

Our competitive program (Spring Select) has tryouts in the fall and starts in mid-February. To qualify for a Select team, a player must have played on a core program team during the Fall season.

For information about our season, costs, and how to sign up, see the registration page for the current season. Important dates, including registration events and deadlines, coach and referee trainings, and board meetings, can be found on the Calendar.

AYSO is an all volunteer organization! Please volunteer to assist our region in providing another great year of soccer experience to our players. There is a wide range of positions available. Coaches, Assistant Coaches, and Referees are especially needed. We provide free training and all the equipment you need. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Can my player play in a younger division?
 We do not allow players to play in a younger division for both insurance reasons and to maintain competitive balance. We balance teams based on player skill level and age so each team has players with a varying range of skill and ages.

Can my player play in an older division? If both parents and coaches feel like a player's skill level warrants playing in an older division a player can play in an older division with permission from the Regional Commissioner.

When are practices days/times/locations? Before the season starts you will receive communication from your coach who will include the planned practice schedule for the season. Our coaches are all volunteers so we provide our coaches the flexibility of scheduling their practice days/times/location. As part of the registration there is a question regarding practice day availability. We use response to this question to match players with teams based on team's practice days, but there is no guarantee that there will not be conflicts.

Can my player play with friends? As part of the registration there is a field to enter buddy requests. Although we try to honor buddy requests as much as possible we can only guarantee 1 mutual buddy request. This is done to maintain one of our core philosophies of Balanced Teams. We believe that the best development tool for our players are playing in as many competitive games as possible. Also note that players with different birth years may be in different divisions (see above questions regarding playing in a different division).
