AYSO Region 98
Region 98 was formed in 1975 to teach, promote and develop youth soccer in the Temple City area. Region 98 is one of several local regions which are part of Section 1, Area C (also known as Area 1C). Area 1C is comprised of regions within the West San Gabriel Valley, based in the cities and their surrounding communities of Arcadia, South Pasadena, Pasadena, San Gabriel, Glendale, Alhambra, El Monte, and Boyle Heights.
In 1999, Region 98 started a VIP soccer program for special needs kids. VIP is a program designed for children with developmental or physical disabilities who want to play soccer. VIP players who need on-field assistance are assigned a "buddy". Buddies are girls and boys in divisions U12 and above (ages 10 and older) who serve as helpers and friends to VIP players, offering players on-field assistance so they can "play the ball". For instance, a VIP player who is blind would have a buddy nearby who could give verbal clues as to where the ball is as well as other directional advice as needed in order to play the ball. Teams or boys and girls interested in serving as a buddy can contact Carol Casey directly at (626) 484-2887. Time spent serving as a VIP buddy count as community service hours.
