About Us

AYSO Region 85 has been 'providing world class youth soccer programs that enrich children's lives' - since 1975.

A soccer program for the entire family - our goal is for every girl and boy stepping onto a soccer field to learn soccer and have a fun, fair and safe experience. We also create a terrific experience for parents, who can be involved with their child as a coach or referee - creating memories that last a lifetime.
