Beginning Aug. 1 2010 All U-6 and U-8 Coaches must be fully trained and certified to the U-8 level this would also include “Safe Haven” This training can be done on-line at www.aysotraining.org But we encourage every coach to participate in our field training.
At the end of every season, each coach is required to submit a player rating form. This form is used to balance the teams (as much as possible) that get created in the following season. This form can be filled out and given to any board member (or emailed).

AYSO Six Philosophies:
1.Everyone Plays -Every player on every team must play at least 50% of every game.
2.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.
3.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.
4.Positive Coaching-Encouragement of player effort provides for greater enjoyment for the players and leads to better-skilled and better-motivated players.
5.Good Sportsmanship-We strive to create a positive environment based on mutual respect rather than a win-at-all-costs attitude.
6.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.
I want to thank all the coaches for volunteering their valuable time.
