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

AYSO Region 55

About Us

The American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO) was founded in Torrance, California in September 1964, by five men dedicated to youth soccer and the development of caring and concerned American Citizens. In 1964, AYSO’s family included only nine teams. Today, that number has grown to more than 850 Regional Programs and more than 40,000 teams. An average of one parent per family actively participates in AYSO acting as Coach, Referee, Team Parent, Administrator, or Sponsor. AYSO is currently supported by more than 250,000 unpaid volunteers.


AYSO programs work because our volunteers work. They work because they believe in the programs. Our phenomenal growth reflects AYSO’s commitment to a healthy competitive atmosphere for youth soccer players and a concern for the development of caring and responsible individuals.

AYSO Vision
AYSO's Vision is to provide world class youth soccer programs that enrich children’s lives.

AYSO 6 PHILOSOPHIES

AYSO Mission

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.
