Rivertowns AYSO (Region 324 New York)

AYSO Recreational Soccer Program


Our region, Rivertowns AYSO (Region 324 New York), is part of the American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO), the largest youth soccer organization in the United States, with over 600,000 participating children and over 250,000 volunteer coaches, referees and administrators.

AYSO is a nationwide non-profit organization that develops and delivers quality youth soccer programs in a fun, family environment, relying on both our NYCFC Youth Partner coaches as well as parent volunteers to deliver the program

Region 324, part of Section 3/Area T, includes Ardsley, Dobbs Ferry, Hartsdale, Hastings-on-Hudson, and Irvington, and surrounding communities, supporting over 1200 players. Our programs follow the school year and are comprised of eight weekends of soccer in the fall (mid-September through mid-November) and another eight weekends of soccer in the spring (mid-April through mid-June).

As a community soccer organization, we actively solicit parents at registration to volunteer to coach, referee and assist with the administration of our programs.

AYSO's Six Philosophies

Our recreational program operates pursuant to AYSO's six philosophies:

Everyone Plays®: Our program's goal is for kids to play soccer so we mandate that every player on every team must play at least 50% of every game. It’s no fun to spend the game on the bench…and that’s no way to learn soccer!

Balanced Teams: Each year we form new teams as evenly balanced as possible because it’s more fun and a better learning experience when teams of similar ability play. It allows for each player to gain the experience of a wide variety of teammates of different skill levels. 

Open Registration: Our program is open to all children between 4 and 19 years of age who want to register and play soccer. Interest and enthusiasm are the only criteria for playing. There are no elimination try-outs and nobody gets cut.

Positive Coaching: Encouragement of player effort provides for greater enjoyment for the players and leads to better-skilled and better-motivated players. A coach can be one of the most influential people in a child’s life, so AYSO requires they create a positive experience for every player.

Good Sportsmanship: We strive 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.
