AYSO VIP Program

The AYSO Very Important Player Program provides a quality soccer experience for children and adults whose physical or mental disabilities make it difficult to successfully participate on mainstream teams. VIP teams may include, but are not limited to, those who are:
  • Blind or visually impaired
  • Amputees or conditions that impair mobility
  • Mentally or emotionally challenged
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Down Syndrome
  • Cerebral Palsy

We recognize that all individuals need to feel a sense of belonging and acceptance. The VIP program offers that acceptance and carries our philosophy of Everyone Plays to new heights - giving everyone a chance to play.

Program Goals

Kids with special needs are estimated to make up approximately 10% of the school-age population. Special schools and classrooms can isolate these children so the VIP Program has been structured to integrate our special kids into the rest of AYSO by using "buddies" from non-VIP teams to help these players both on and off the field.

Our goals for every participating player are to: 

  • have fun playing soccer
  • understand the fundamentals of the game
  • learn teamwork and fair play
  • increase positive self-esteem
  • become more physically fit
  • meet and be comfortable with new people
