Have Your Program Join Ours or Start a NEW AYSO Region!

AYSO Regions come in all shapes and sizes, from less than 100 players to several thousand. Regions are suburban, urban and rural and in almost every state in the nation. They include start-from-scratch programs as well as Park & Recreation, soccer clubs, unaffiliated leagues and other programs that have converted to AYSO Regions. At an attractive national per-player cost, you can take advantage of excellent insurance, easy-to-use financial systems, online player and volunteer registration, tremendous coach, referee and management training, and a vast array of systems, services and materials that are available to support kids playing soccer and families having fun.
