AYSO's Mission is to develop and deliver quality youth soccer programs which promote a fun, family environment based on AYSO's Six Philosophies:
Everyone Plays. Our goal is for kids to play soccer—so AYSO mandates that every player on every team must play at least half of every game. Region 55 extends this tenet to play every child at least 3/4 of every game, wherever possible during regular season play.
Balanced Teams. At the start of each primary season, we form teams as evenly balanced as possible because it is more fun where teams of equal ability play.
Positive Coaching. Winning kids are built up, not torn down!
We train and encourage our coaches to make the extra effort to understand and offer positive help to our players, rather than negative criticism.
Open Registration. Our program is open to all children between 4 and 18 years of age who want to register and play soccer in our program. Interest and enthusiasm are the only criteria for playing.
Good Sportsmanship. We desire 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.
Player Development. We believe that 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, in order to maximize their enjoyment of the game.
