Who we are

Area 2e is part of Section 2.  Area 2e Covers Northern Nevada, North Eastern California and South Eastern Oregon.  One of AYSO largest Areas.  We are a wide spread area.  See Area 2e territory here

YSO is a non-profit organization that provides youth soccer programs for participants all over the United States and internationally in the Virgin Islands and Trinidad and Tobago. Consisting of over 50,000 teams and 500,000 players nationwide, AYSO is one of the leading youth soccer organizations in the world. It is often called “the biggest soccer club in the world.” 

Our Vision
To provide world class youth soccer programs that enrich children’s lives. 

Our Mission
To develop and deliver quality youth soccer programs which promote a fun, family environment based on our Six Philosophies

What we do 
AYSO has various programs for different age groups and athletic needs/capabilities: 

AYSO Playground: This program is for kids 3 to 5 years old. AYSO Playground uses group activities, soccer themes and parent participation to develop the fundamental motor skills that prepare kids for all sports. 

AYSO Schoolyard Jamboree: The Jamboree program exposes 4 year olds to soccer, and teaches them the basics such as kicking, dribbling and throw-ins, all in a low-pressure setting. 

Core: Core is another name for AYSO’s standard soccer program. The Core program spans the U-6 to U-19 age divisions and is typically separated by gender, although co-ed soccer is offered in some communities at the early age levels and for teen recreational programs. 

EXTRATM: EXTRATM offers a more serious level of soccer for AYSO players who have the interest and the abilities. Though players are more advanced, the EXTRATM program follows the same core values as the other programs and embraces AYSO’s Six Philosophies. 

VIP: The VIP (Very Important Player) program provides a quality soccer experience for kids and adults whose physical or mental disabilities make it difficult to successfully participate on a mainstream team.

AYSO's Six Philosophies

AYSO's Philosophies are living tenets that separate it from other sports organizations. They are Everyone Plays®, Balanced Teams, Open Registration, Positive Coaching, Good Sportsmanship and Player Development.

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 percent 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 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 boy and girl.

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.
