Tournament Teams

Pride


"Prescott Pride" is the name of Region 172 post-primary season tournament teams.  Prescott has a long tradition of taking quality Pride teams to tournaments around the state.  


Tournaments 

The tournament teams, in multiple age divisions, compete in AYSO and club tournaments normally from January to May.  AYSO and club tournaments are typically three day events with most games occurring on Saturdays and Sundays.  Most Pride teams play in about 4-6 tournaments. There is an expectation to participate in the Mile High Classic, our Region's sponsored home tournament here in Prescott and Prescott Valley. Pride teams have traditionally played in the Kachina Klassic, Crossroads Cup and Cactus Classic.  Parents of players are expected to volunteer in the many roles that make our home tournament successful.  Volunteering in the Mile High Classic ensures our teams do not need to pay the registration fees for this tournament.

Try-outs

Open try-outs for Pride teams typically take place the last week of the primary season.  Please check the website calendar mid-season for more information or go to the "Contact Us" page for more info.  

Eligible Players 

Prescott AYSO is now following a calendar year for age divisions.  An age division chart is on the primary season page.  8U & under players are not eligible to play on any tournament teams per USSF rules. To be eligible to try-out for a Pride team, players should have played the AYSO primary season for region 172. Under special circumstances there are exceptions for players who have not played in primary season.  Contact the team coach or go to the "Contact Us" page.  The AYSO National Rules that govern tournament teams can be found under Article 2A.

Costs

Costs for Pride teams vary depending upon the team.  Minimum costs can be expected to be at least $200 but normally not exceeding $350.  Team fees pay for uniforms (jerseys, shorts, and socks), tournament fees, and practice field fees.

Fundraising

Prescott AYSO raises funds as a region for Pride Teams.  Each team is encouraged to fund-raise to help pay for extra equipment and team events.   

Coaching a Pride Team 

For 10U-12U, AYSO requires that coaches be certified for the age they are coaching. U14 requires an intermediate cert and 16U requires an advanced certification.  If interested in coaching a Pride team, please download, complete, and follow instructions to submit your application to Prescott Pride Soccer, PO Box 11452 Prescott, AZ 86304 or email to ayso172web@gmail.com.
