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

AYSO Region 69: Brentwood/ Pacific Palisades/ Topanga

Welcome Letter


As AYSO enters its 58th year with close to 550,000 children participating in over 900 local programs, I am proud to acknowledge that our local program, Region 69, continues to be recognized as a Platinum Region for the outstanding programs offered..  Every Region 69 volunteer made this possible – Thank you!  

We ask for your continued support this season as we enter Region 69’s 47th season.  We are a volunteer-driven organization which requires approximately as many parent volunteers as players to maintain all of our programs and services.   We rely on at least ONE parent from each family to select a task or to become a team sponsor.  Those Volunteering to be a coach, assistant coach, referee, team manager, or Board Member,  MUST complete the VOLUNTEER FORM.   These volunteers will be directed from our website to complete the STERLING VERIFIED VOLUNTEER Application, which will cost the Region $25.    For further information, visit the National website at  

 AYSO Region 69's Fall Program will begin August 29 with practices for older age league teams. Practice for younger players will begin the following week. Games begin September 17 for most, and possibly Sept. 10 for junior high players., with last league games on November 19 . Playoffs take place the first 2 weekends in December. Champions play in the Area P Tournament in January. Tournament Play for those interested in continuing, takes place January - June. (additional fees) Your child will be placed on a balanced team and will have the opportunity to meet new children from their neighborhood. In that spirit, no requests will be considered.


AYSO’s vision is to provide world-class youth soccer programs that enrich children’s lives.  
AYSO's mission is to develop and deliver quality youth soccer programs where everyone builds positive character through participation in a fun, family environment based on these six fundamental principals:  

Everyone Plays
Balanced Teams
Open Registration
Positive Coaching
Good Sportsmanship
Player Development


We have developed our soccer programs to be age-appropriate and developmentally challenging based on our Six Philosophies, which are the essence of AYSO’s Mission and Vision and guide all that we do.


Our core program is the foundation for all the fun, excitement and learning that happens on the fields in the FALL.  This is where the large majority of our players start and fall in love with soccer and make memories that will last a lifetime.  The above mentioned 6 philosophies are the essence of our core program, and all of our other programs and it all starts with Everyone Plays. This means that no player spends their soccer experience sitting on the bench, they play at least 3 quarters of every game. Registration is opened to any player in the core program regardless of ability, as long as there is space.  Teams are put together by gender and age, see AGE DIVISIONS, and are balanced in a way that makes playing soccer about the experience, not wins or losses. It’s not about blowing out another team with an unbelievable score; it’s about sportsmanship and learning to be the best possible teammate and opponent. Developing players is what we’re about because soccer skills and life skills go hand in hand. We want to get players on the field, provide them with good positive coaches, and teach them to play soccer.


The VIP Program (Very Important Players) provides a quality soccer experience for children and adults whose physical or mental disabilities make it difficult to successfully participate on mainstream teams.  The program is held Saturday mornings in Santa Monica.  Contact [email protected]


Our 5U division is about exposing children to soccer as a game, without the pressure to win. The children are introduced to soccer skills like kicking and dribbling in a fun and nurturing environment.  Best of all, they find out that soccer is something they can do!

On Saturdays, there will be a one-hour time slot for practice and a game experience.  Our professional trainers work with the players for the first 30 minutes, then a 5-minute break, followed by a 20-minute game, with a 5-minute break at halftime.  Players are expected to arrive 5 minutes prior to the time assigned (no earlier) so they are ready when the trainers begin.


The 6U division is also all about exposing children to soccer as a game, without the pressure to win. The children are introduced to soccer skills like kicking and dribbling in a fun and nurturing environment. Best of all, they find out that soccer is something they can do!

Players will be assigned a team and volunteer parent coach for Saturday games.  During the week players can sign up for our optional 45-minute practice clinics.  Simply select the day of the week and location that works best for your family.  Then on Saturdays, join your teammates during your specified one-hour time slot for practice and a game experience.  Our professional trainers work with the players for the first 25 minutes, then a 5-minute break, followed by a 25-minute game, with a 5-minute break at halftime.  Players are expected to arrive 5 minutes prior to the time assigned (no earlier) so they are ready when the trainers begin.


The All-Star Program provides an opportunity for skilled players to continue their AYSO soccer experience at an accelerated level by competing in tournaments against other All-Star teams from neighboring communities and states, after the  Fall CORE Program.   All CORE players who have played in 3/4 of their league games (no more than 2 absences for reasons other than injury, illness, or late assignment) are eligible to try out for THEIR division’s  EXTRA/All-Star/Tournament Teams.  The Tournament Season begins with practice in December or January, and extends to June, or perhaps optionally longer, depending on the team.


The AYSO Extra program is a competitive soccer league, starting in the Fall, designed to provide a higher level of play for those players who possess the appropriate skills, abilities, and drive.  Games will be played with other regions from Area P as well as from Areas C, D and F.  The Extra program is designed to enhance each player's experience and individual growth through the game of soccer while retaining the spirit, organization and six philosophies of AYSO: Everyone Plays, Balanced Teams (balanced through competitive bracketing), Open Registration, Positive Coaching, Good Sportsmanship, and Player Development. 

Tryouts for Fall 2022 EXTRA teams will be held April 26-April 30.


Our Regional Staff has been working with local, state, and federal officials to secure and improve our limited field space.  Our challenge continues to be the cost and acquisition of field space rental, maintenance, and improvements, thus it was necessary to raise the fee this season.  Starting mid May, the Region will be paying for Volunteer Background checks.  (Previously paid by National Office)

We are asking for additional funds to contribute toward field renovations and the rising cost of field rental, along with maintenance and improvement of all of the fields.  If you are unable to volunteer this season, this is an ideal way to still contribute in a meaningful way to our Region.  

Your continued generous sponsorships and contributions are MOST appreciated.  Those who contribute $2,500 (Field Sponsorship) or more will receive special recognition. We urgently need your donations this year.

TEAM SPONSORSHIPS :  $500/1 player,  $750/2 players,   $1,000/3 players


DONATIONS:  any other amount
